Billax has announced the return of the Under 40 What Are You Wearing Contest.

It is a contest that will run each of the next 6 months, July to December 2015.

After the judges announce the best outfit of the month, that winner will receive a $50 prize payment via PayPal from Billax himself.

Here are the Rules:

• Only Curriculum members under age 40 may participate.

• Any outfits also shown elsewhere will be disqualified. This stipulation has been made by Billax to enhance the exclusivity of The Curriculum.

• Outfits will be judged on their adherence to the classic TNSIL ethos.


The judge's decisions are final.

First month's contest (July) will be short. It will run from 7/15/2015 to 7/31/15.

After that, the contest will run until the last day of each month, through December.

We are all looking forward to seeing the excellent contributions that you guys are capable of.

Thanks in advance for all of your participation, and many thanks to Billax for his inspiration and generous support.

Post your submissions here. Game on!

I am excited! I hope this is what we needed to fight off the summer slump.

^ Yep. This is a good point. We ought to think of little programs and challenges like this to keep us somewhat plugged in in the summer.

Not my best photo, but here y'all go:

Image

Oxxford hopsack jacket, old BB OCBD, Bill's, PRL snuff suede belt and J.Crew captoe suede boots. The skies opened up on us right after the ceremony so I was quite glad I wore the boots instead of a pair of tassels. The pants and the shirt fell victim to a fruitless and muddy dive at the garter toss.

When I came and when I left. Long day and some bad lighting, but I really liked the second image. It is also 90+ degrees.

Reuben - Good stuff. You never disappoint and you always have fun.

The July Under 40 Contest has resulted in a TIE.

OCBD and Reuben will therefore be sharing the prize 50/50.

Conrats guys, thanks for participating, and keep an eye out for a personal message from Billax.


The August contest is on.

Maybe not the best representation of the clothing, but it's a good action shot and the pattern's nice and loud:

Reuben, I think I speak on behalf of my fellow under-40s in thanking you for not entering that UGA pic here and giving the rest of us a shot at winning this month. Structured or not, that is a darn fine look (as is the above shot).

Thanks Spin! You might want to double-check your attachment, as the picture isn't showing up on my screen. I mean, surely you wouldn't post a comment like that without an entry . . .

Good point, Reuben. Apparently Spin experienced a, ahem.... technical glitch there, and his entry is forthcoming.

Along with entries from our other regulars, and some new guys who I will assume are under the age limit. :D
