Here is a suit they call "The Sexton", tailored by Edward Sexton
It is a suit custom designed to be used when riding a bicycle. The back and shoulders are articulated so that is comfortable when hunched over and riding. The skirt of the coat also buttons up to stay out of the way when pedaling. There is a trend towards this kind of clothing. With the growth of Tweed Runs/Rides (www.tweedride.com) all over the world, people are starting to get more interested in "dressing up" when riding a bike. The epicenter of this trend is, of...

It was a tough choice. Both contestants look very good. It is interesting to see the difference in purchasing style (new vs. used) as well as their individual style. While I like the fabric of TTO's suit better; ultimately, I had to go with MBreinin and his superior fit.
So does Cravate_Noire win automatically ? Did any other forvum members go to Pitti?
Vox Sartoria; what kind of name is that anyway? His voice is more snark than sartorial. I always thought it could be improved upon. Maybe something that would really give people an idea on how things stand. Say... Rex Sartoria... Or Rex Styleforia...? (or however you would decline it) You know; to really make sure the Latin speaking n00bs know what is up.
I am surprised at how well this challenge went. What an excellent turn out. Excellent job everyone. So what now? Duel (MBreinin you sure seem to get into a lot of them) or co-champions?
It is very easy to do. Any tailor should be able to handle it.
