A lot of the fits posted are average - not average as in bad (well, there are some bad ones ... lol) ... but just what you would expect from people - and in many cases, we've seen them in better fits. I think Mike and Orgetorix were the ones who came close to topping the best I've seen from them.

Fred simply crushed it.

ps - Fred, who are the scoundrels in the background? lol.

Lack of critique on my fit has me a little self conscious(no troll).

Yes, I know it's only been an hour 30mins since I put it up.

i think the sechs/beej comment regarding the wife prob creeped some peeps out, not so cool or respecful. also not to be too much of an sf mob mentality whore but jab, nautica, kc wont get you much love, im kinda surprissed no one snarked you out. but concidering your join date i assume you know that.

enough about that though on to the clothes. as i always say im a noob, certainly no expert. i looks ok, not amazing. the tie knot is eating the collar though, the jacket seems a bit large and grey pants and jacket that arent a suit is odd. you need to provide some contrast between the sc and the trousers. cheers, sorry if that was a bit harsh

The 'sechs/beej' comment was just goofing.(thought it was obvious)
The Nautica/KC stuff I know gets little love and I too expected snarks. However, That's why I wrote "poor man's version".
Thanks for review of fit. Collar is outta whack. Gonna go sans tie or try diff shirt. Will post pics if I change.
Will leave creepy sechs jokes out of future posts.

Thanks very much Nii. I am putting in a new kitchen. The scoundrels (friends)are hanging a light that I designed. Pictures to follow. Maybe if I am lucky later today.

Not harsh at all.

The suit/pant contrast I was unsure of too until spoo posted this fit the other day


Maybe mine still off a bit.
SC certainly needs some work.

Seems we chose fairly similar looks today. What does that say about us, I wonder...

Dig this DB a lot. Nice fit and proportions to my eye.

Not sure there's all that much to say. The look is OK, but there's nothing particularly outstanding to praise, or egregious enough to damn. It's just a moderately-fitting, moderately-coordinated, passable outfit. It feels flat and lifeless at the moment. Of course, that last sentence acquires a whole new light if read in conjunction with your intended plans for the night!

To be honest, I found that element of the challenge description odd, and contradictory to the rest of it. Surely every day is about wearing something that we think looks good. The idea of a day when we're meant to try harder than usual on that score seemed like a real nonsense to me. So instead, I felt it was much more logical to focus on the other half of the description (the Gold Standard bit, rather than the Raise the Bar bit), and interpret it as showing an outfit I feel summarises my personal standard look, when done well. Raising the Bar would necessarily require experimentation outside our usual range, and therefore is contradictory to displaying our personal Gold Standard. I think others probably interpreted the theme similarly, which accounts for a lot of what you're seeing in terms of us showing our expected looks, albeit executed crisply.

In lieu of a long-awaited but never materialising seersucker challenge, here's my entry for the Friday 'Gold Standard' challenge:

Well, Nii, for the record the Challenge was designed specifically to elevate WAYWRN for a day by posting your best fit. In my case, I chose a known commodity as my best because it has been widely praised in the past and it has not been in a challenge as of yet. I don't think the intention was to post something necessarily new (as a new fit might look good to the wearer, but be a boatload full of fail to the forum), just your best. I agree that Fred did an excellent job here, but so have several others.

Just sayin. ().

I don't know where you are, but it is not Seersucker weather just yet...not even in NOLA. I am sure there will be a Seersucker/Summer Suit challenge down the road.
