      How about all-green?

      1. Green merino v-neck (UNIQLO)
      2. Green gingham shirt (J. Crew)
      3. Green tie (Nordstrom)
      4. Green chinos (L L Bean)
      5. Green Neumoks (Allen Edmonds)

      Although now that I think of it, the green gingham shirt is at my house, not the apartment I'm living in at the moment.

        [MENTION=12001]evanparker[/MENTION] Nice shoes!
        [MENTION=13548]srlclark[/MENTION] if you incorporate all green, that would be awesome!

          The orchestra I play with has been encouraged to wear "holiday flair" for our concert this weekend. I was thinking of wearing a green tie with my tux (notch lapels, so I'm not super concerned about the formality incongruity). Maybe a burgundy strap on my watch. I don't know, we'll see.

                  I like green - I think it looks good on me (must be all the Irish in me) and that it's just a cool and underused color altogether. In any event, here's my entry:



                  Jacket: LBM 1911
                  Pants: Bonobos
                  Shirt: Uniqlo
                  Sweater: BR
                  Shoes: Alden
                  Pocket square: The Tie Bar

                    Sorry to ask a personal, non-fashion related question on this site, but curiosity's gotten the better of me. What instrument do you play? Are you a career musician? I've always been jealous of classically trained musicians. I gigged for a few years playing ukulele and singing for small parties and corporate events, but I taught myself how to play so I wasn't ever that great.

                    [MENTION=3269]Shomas[/MENTION] -- Solid outfit. I'm loving the pattern on the coat with the more vibrant green underneath.

                            I'll throw my hat into the ring on this one. I think I was trying to channel my inner-McQueen. Also tried to incorporate the green, red, white Xmas theme on this one (plus the Starbucks cup, haha). Forgive the kinda douchey pose. I don't know really how to take photos still.

                              I wanted to enter with my Riddler costume, but I had to go to New York for a research trip in the end (and am on my way right now), so sadly I'll have to sit this one out unless the deadline is extended by a week.
