Cravate enjoys a significant advantage in this competition because of his wise choices in non-clothing accessories.

.

If you're on about the nerd glasses, they are a complete fail.

If you're on about the companion, the jury's out. Could be a stone cold fox but at that angle could be a BOBFOC.

(Body off Baywatch, face off Crimewatch)

Can't really see much in the second pic to judge a fit here, only the top half of the jacket.

You guys make me want to cry in frustration.

It's an outfit battle. Do you really need whole body shots, from the front, back, and side, to be able to say that you like the way something looks?

I need lapel measurements or this is pointless.

You need a reasonable sense of detail. Also, that one photo is black and white while the other is color really isn't fair. How well someone coordinates and matches colors is pretty key to whether his outfit looks good.

Which person would look better in a black and white film?

A less flippant answer:

We are working with very limited information anyway. A two dimensional representation is usually not enough, and often shows the photographer's skill as much as anything. You need specialized lenses to get color balance right, and it's difficult to capture texture and color at the same time. And even then, different subjects photograph differently. There are people who are very photogenic, but in person, seem awkward and ungainly, and vice versa. A person moves in three dimensions through time. If a static, two dimensional photograph were enough, there'd be no need to visit a tailor. You'd just send in pictures of yourself in your skivvies, standing beside a meterstick, and you'd be good to go.

Given the limitations of this medium, then, which outfit do you find more attractive. Which poster do you find more stylish?

I think both members win in their respective ways, it is simply not possible to compare an orange and an apple.
