I voted for you too so I'm not saying you didn't put it together right; you certainly did. I just meant what Claghorn said - that your amazing suits are almost too good such that many people don't notice the effort that those with lesser resources go to putting an outfit together. The challenges to me are about that question of putting together.

 

So it was more a message for people voting to really think about everyone's submissions, not telling you to do anything different! As others have aready said, you are someone from whom almost everyone here can learn something.

How does that sound to everyone?

i think a break is an excellent idea. let people regroup and refresh. will allow the challenges to keep going and not peter out.

If you have poor quality pictures, you aren't going to do well. If your clothes don't fit or the fit/cut deviates too much from SF tastes, you won't do well. In a perfect world, maybe votes would be based solely on execution of the theme, but this isn't a perfect world, this is SF. And the challenge polls, like WAYWRN, don't indicate who is actually well dressed, they indicate who SF thinks is well dressed.

agree 100%. its almost like when one kid is told in school he cant play ball during recess because he is too good. total BS. the theme is merely a theme, a broad outline in which to operate, but the votes are cast based on the entirely of the fit, the pictures and whatever cache the poster is fortunate enough to have.

if you cant dig it, #dealwithit.

Nobody here was suggesting this. It was, as Flyingmonkey clarified, really directed more at voters than at Butler and an explanation of why he (and I, though I voted for Butler and not o/o) were glad o/o won.

Gentlemen, Please note that I have at no time felt that this was directed towards me in a negative way, and consequently have not in any way been offended (how could I with all the compliments -thanks!) - but I do believe it has been a very useful discussion! bigstar[1].gif

Yes, exactly. The voaters have the right to vote based on whatever parameters they deem fit.

Sad, but so it goes.

Barring objection, as the current keeper of the challenge, I would like to let An Acute Style call the tune this week.
