There's no way Crusty can't win. That many stripes and you don't look like a clown.

Perhaps, although here is a well dressed Italian wearing it: bigstar[1].gif

Close-ups on shirt and tie to prove there are stripes and give a better sense of the color.

Clarinet Player and Uppr for me.



Betelgeuse? What was with your tie? No mirror that day? Stevie Wonder could have told you it was out of place!

I rather liked the twist, actually. But I'm aware that sprezz isn't SF approved. I like a little bit of my rear blade showing at the top. Not as much as Betel did.

For the first time, I thought more fits deserved votes than didn't. Nice work, gentlemen.
post #68 of 79

let's hope someone comes up with a better theme next week.

 

for now betel, gmmcl, butler and clarinet player get my vote.

I didn't know that was the so called "sprezz"... will never do it again. shog[1].gif

Some of the time when I tie a tie, it's a DFIH with the rear blade showing ever so slightly all the way down. This is probably highly against SF rules. But, just like Stitchys lack of PS, it's some times my thing to wear it that way. I think it looks nice, especially on my longer ties.

 

PS, you got one of my votes. The tie helped.

We'll call that the double-double. I love it, probably my favorite fit this week. And one of the very few times I've liked the look of a contrast collar shirt.
