I voted for you too. Easily the best expression of CBD here. But almost everyone else was good in some other ways that weren't quite CBD.

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?

I voted for Mr. Sheep because it was the one that jumped out at me the most. Orgetorix should have worn his uber-CBD navy three-piece, that would have been the end of it.

I think the turnout would be improved with longer time allowed for voting. I mean, if Stitchy can't make it to the voting booth, you know you're not keeping it open long enough ;-)

FWIW, my vote would've gone to Timo.

I agree with those who said Acrid's fit would've benefitted from black shoes.

OK, so, clearly "CBD" doesn't equal "trad". Not that I would have qualified anyway, since my suit wasn't sack, but that's where I was going with the tie and the OCBD.

Anyway, I hope there is a next time so I can redeem myself....

I was going by my recollection of how long the polls remained open in the past. Which, of course, could be faulty...

I think SF is generally "slow" over the weekend. Maybe next time we should have the poll open till Monday night.

I like the challenges, hope we can make a tradition. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Maybe they should be done on Wednesdays rather than Fridays. Aside from the dreaded Casual Fridays, as we approach the Summer a lot of people take three-day weekends.
