    Friday Challenge 5/16/14: Tip your Square

    I tried to make this as open ended as possible to encourage participation, so let's see some fresh faces. Good luck!

    Alright gents, come one, come all...I want to see your wingtips and pocket-squares. Do it how you want, long-wing / short wing; black brown, orange, rubber / leather sole, etc. Just put together a fit that incorporates and focuses on the beloved Wingtip and accessorize with a PS. Lets see the fits PEOPLE.


    Considering I always lose my own challenges, I know one of you gents is ready for this one...

    The usual rules apply:

    1.) A challenge is proposed (typically on a Sunday or Monday).
    2.) Ideas are bounced around throughout the week, any questions are codified, and guidelines are put into place.
    3.) On Friday (or before), everyone dresses according to the challenge's parameters.
    4.) On Saturday, all challengers are recorded and voting opens to see who best represents the challenge.
    5.) A winner is chosen by majority vote on Sunday, and the winner is responsible for choosing the next week's challenge.

        Ok, so as I said, I think you made this for me today (I usually only wear my wingtips one/two days per week). Here's my look:



        Jacket: Hickey Freeman
        Shirt: Bobby Jones
        Pants: J Crew Chambray
        Shoes: AE McAllisters (Chili)
        Pocket Square: A gift from my fiance (actually from yesterday). It was hand woven/hand stitched from Guatemala. She visits there 2-3 times/year on a medical mission trip, and visits the local villages to see what they have to offer. She came back with this, as well as a fabulous cotton tie that is equally hand woven/folded/sewn.
        Bag: Saddleback Large Briefcase (in the background)

                            Thanks man! I really like the Bedford and Broome stuff, it's reversible for the most part and both sides are always something useful. Great customer service and online presence too

                              Damn how have I not known about Bedford and Broome before now!! And I just bought a new bow tie this week from Cordial Churchman...Looks like I may need to pick up one or two more now...Loving the Eldridge which appears to be the one you have also.
