Thanks, T!  I didn't note the change from "compulsory mismatch" to "no mismatch"!  Just trying to do what the Butler ordered. lol8[1].gif

There have been some disqualifications, sorry, there is an option to chuck a sympathy vote to those who fell under my knife!
Mimo, the suits a lovely linen/mohair blend, one of the most comfortable things I have for the heat.

Yeah, the lightness really comes across in the pic actually.  Maybe darker summer-weight suits are an under-used wonder.  I need to look into some myself, as my lighter suits are a touch casual.  I take it your suit's bespoke? It's an extraordinary fit and finish; love it.

Org and SoSty get my votes. I try to limit myself to two votes and sugar BARELY got edged by SoSty this time.

Butler, I just noticed you & Kaplan are at the same venue, Friday Challenge meet-ups, maybe we should have a special challenge where we try to get as many well dressed folks together in each city...the international shoe circle challenge!?

They were my top two as well, although I also blessed SB and Timo with my votes.  Also because they didn't get any mimo-love before.  Whereas I left out TTO just for a change...not that he isn't always deserving...

 

(Can't believe I'm losing out to the disqualified sympathy vote after wearing a three-piece on my day off - and it's 100 degrees and 75% humidity.  You guys are tough.)

Orge and Southern for me. A vote would have gone to Butler as well if his made it in on time. Solid work gentlemen.

Org and TTO....though I saw Butler AFTER I voted.

SouthernStyle needs socks. It isn't cute anymore. Someone needs to take that kid out back to the woodshed!
