A rare opportunity
This week’s Friday challenge on StyleForum was “Heavyweight tag team championship” - pair up with another forum member and wear an outfit centered around a common theme. As someone noticed in the thread:
Do you guys know what this challenge reminds me of?
When my daughter was like 7 or 8, she would call her bestest friend at night before bed, and they would meticulously plan to be wearing matching clothes to school the next day.
I usually don’t dress up too much these days as I am on summer vacations, but I really couldn’t miss this opportunity. So I paired up with cleav31, who just happens to be one of my favourite posters on SF, and above you see 50% of the tag team “Checkmates(s)”. For 100% see here

I have found it very hard to motivate myself to spend a lot of money on odd trousers for a number of reasons.
First, I appear to have no problem finding trousers that fit me well, and just about any brand I have tried have worked out for me, so I have lots of possible brands to choose from.
Second, most odd trousers I have get reasonable amounts of wear and therefore wear out rather quickly. I have found that Charles Tyrwhitt’s trousers represent a fairly good trade-off between quality and price. I would lie if I said that CTs trousers are of the same quality as my Incotex trousers are, but on the other hand the Incotex are about 4-5 times more expensive and I am not convinced that they are worth the extra money (to me, I should say).
Third, I have been searching long and hard for a pair of mid-grey trousers in a shade I like (not too light, not too dark) and I have found it incredibly difficult to locate a suitable pair online. These CT trousers was the closest I could get, without getting into MTM. Sure, I would have liked the cloth to be slightly heavier, but for £75 it was still a pretty sweet deal and I must say they have held up pretty well given how much I have used them.
