Don't, it's badass. May want to consider posting it on Monday though (for more eyeballs).

I agree with the Monday post - or maybe changing the title to WAYWRN's greatest hits or something like that (and linking to the thread via a post in WAYWRN).

*SBD WAYWRN, not CBD WAYWRN

Because they're interesting to look at and fun to read, Fred.

Fred, why don't you do a few weeks, then appoint some guest editors?

Thanks for the advice and thoughts, guys. I do have fun with this and WILL keep it up. Spoo, your suggestion as to the title has been implemented. Acrid's recommendation about a Monday posting will take effect next week. Thanks again, fellas! Oh, and Spoo, I'm working on the logistics of a daily WAYWRN shot. For several different reasons it may end up looking like the way Ethan (Patrick Johnson Tailors) does his (Rugged Old Salt):

This isn't a bad idea. I also like the idea of a best of/worst of combo. That way I could I'd have more appearances in the thread .

Guest editors make sense, but they MUST share my ridiculous sense of humor (which could be tough). But as for teh best/worse idea... I'm all about celebrating the *best of the week* shots with a focus on fit AND photography. The out of focus, color balance challenged, dark shots don't (IMHO) merit a repost. And I'm not about giving advice or putting down guys who are not only trying hard but have the grapefruit to keep posting their fits. This is a celebratory thing with semi-witty commentary thrown in as a bonus.

My "worst of" idea is well-intentioned humor, not reckless derision. A fine line, to be sure, but one potentially worth towing.

Thanks for the include, Fred, although I should relegate the "casual" looks to regular old WAYWRN from now on

The *worst of* isn't a bad idea at all... Could pull together in one spot, some advice on both fits and photography... It's just that I'd have to have an armed escort walk me to my car!

I wasn't necessarily thinking you'd be the one to put it together, as you are very stylish already. It might be fun if a less-skilled noob put it together - like "the weekly noobs guide to WAYWRN" Maybe I'll do it. When I improve some day, I'll hand over the reins to another clueless noob. On second thought, maybe there are too many WAYWRN side businesses already.

I like your editing reason, AS ^^^ I like the title change Fred, looks good. And - I want both those fits from Ethan you posted. Awesome. If you can post like that, then do it!

Pretty funny that I get shoes of the week. BTW, the salad stain is on the other toe. For some reason, suede shoes are like a magnet for food and drink on my feet. I am wearing blue suede Chukkas today...and spilled coffee on them. Second wearing.

Sorry to hear that, man. I have my BB light brown cap-toes on today and I carried my Starbucks at ARMS LENGTH back to the office.
