The "CBD" detail made this one tough to vote on. If it weren't CBD, I would have voted Timo. If Acrid had worn black shoes I would have vote for him. If Orge didn't have the medium scale windowpane suit and striped shirt I would have voted for him. As it is, I voted for Sugar.

acridsheep



Acrid, I know I've read posts in which you've expressed your reasons for not spending money on black shoes, but this outfit, along with your silver hair, are all the justification you should need for purchasing a nice black captoe.

Tim wins, with his edgy suit and great charm, that's the new CBD approach!

I wish I have my navy blue suit with me so I can join the challenge.

Edgy is the exact opposite from CBD. Timotune looks great, but it is not CBD. Had that not been part of the challenge, I would have voted for him in a second.

I believe CBD means anything that can be worn to classic business environment. Different school of thoughts really.

Plus, undoubtedly Tim's charm outweighs any dogmatic rules.

We have a winner! acridsheep handily defeats all comers after taking an early lead in the polling. timotune trailed in second with Orgetorix claiming the final spot on the podium. Well played, gentlemen, and congratulations to everyone else who all got at least one vote. Sheepy will soon receive this rare and coveted piece of neckwear in the mail as the reward for his fine effort:



Don't worry, Sheepy, j/k. smile.gif

Sorry, Stitchy! I specified that it end at midnight tonight, but it looks like midnight was not Pacific time. I was surprised to see that it had already closed.

Now, be honest. Who would have gotten your vote? biggrin.gif

I missed the deadline, but would have gone for Orgetorix, with acridsheep a close runner up.

Acrid is a well deserved winner!

Now he's to choose the next challenge, right? Looking forward to it!

I voted for teh sugarbutch. Closest to CBD IMO, sheepy was more like Conservative Wedding Dress (that and brown shoes). tounge.gif

I assumed that CBD was a commonly understood term round these parts, but that assumption appears to have been optimistic. I guess I could have been more explicit, but I'm happy with the turnout (if not the result patch[1].gif ).

In terms of CBD, I think mine was most faithful to the concept, with Sheepy and Orge each doing a looser interpretation. Sheepy's shoes and tie and Orge's suit and shirt pattern pushed at the boundaries, but both guys looked great. timotune's shoes and closeness of fit dialed down the CBD for him, but it was still a nice look.

Shall we play again next week? You up for it, Sheepy?
