One of the difficulties of this pointless discussion is that the people with the really, REALLY excellent photographs (Butler, VictorSF) also tend to be REALLY excellent dressers.

It is a very good point.

we can add vox to that list, and ya'll can kill me for saying it, but its hard to argue that $ does not factor into that observation. gauche for saying it? probably, but still true.

Buddy, money factors into everything.

I believe I once won a challenge with very shitty pics.

 

jussaying.

so can we stop whining about RDiaz winning because of the pic quality because he still would have won.

 

Let me put it this way. No DSLR in the world would have helped VE's fit win this challenge.

lolz.

i dont think anyone is disputing that diazs fit was the best fit in the challenge, by a country mile. i think that some people are are just irked by the fact, yes i said fact, that votes are garnered by more than just fit. which i think is the reality, for better or worse. and especially considering the option to vote for multiple contestants, its really not a big deal.

ok so if they feel that way they should go take pics next to the Mona Lisa.

 

But let it be known that their fits will still look like shit. next to RDiaz's

I didn't think we were arguing. I just think it is pointless thing to bring up.

 

As if these challenges haven't been won with photos of lesser quality.

 

It's almost like people whining they can't win any these challenges  because their suits aren't bespoke.

Sure but money isn't all important. For example Albert Hal, Orge and TTO (at least early on) thrifted a lot of their clothes and they look great.

By the way I read this discussion no one was whining about unfair competition and every single one participating of this discussion brought up how nice RDiaz's outfit was.

Tira, just for the fun, I'm going to prove you wrong. Presentation helps to sell a product, so it's logical to infer that my outfit would have gathered more votes if it was better represented/photographed. It's not shameful to recognize that we are biased by the photograph, by the poster name, by the brand that he wears (this comment is not directed to RDiaz's outfit), and many other things.

As said already, no one is whining about the fit. Certainly not me.
