Lol ernie. Glad to motivate you.

Interesting voting.

 

Nothing against Clags, but I'm not a fan of his outfit. The trousers, shirt & jacket are perfectly fine together, but to my eye the tie matches the shirt too much and the square feels too bright. I think JPHardy used a similar shirt (and jacket) in a more effective way, by using a darker tie to centre the look, and a darker square that distracts less from that centre

 

On a more general note, I thought that some shirts didn't quite work purely because they were neither fish nor fowl in terms of colours intensity. The better looks either chose very pale or very dark colours. For example, AAS' green is as pale as you could get while still being green (the white stripe adds to this paleness), and works within a conservative framework because of that. Equally, stitchy's, Hardy's or Donut's shirts are very dark, and work that way too.  Tril, Diaz, Claps, Claymore and sb, for example, wore shirts that fell into middling shades that I think proved much harder to integrate.

 

I voted for a range of fits, but my top three are AAS, JPHardy & stitchy.

I am extremely surprised JP didn't win. Same for AAS. I voted for AAS, JP and Clag. 

 

That's not to say I'm upset Clag won. I can't wait to hear his idea.

HF you make me sad. Now I'm going to take my lexapro.

 

Alright, so my very, very, very initial thoughts are:

 

I see London, I see France, I see Uncle Sam's Underpants Challenge

- must wear a visible item from the United States, England, and the continent

 

Do you carry Nokia? Challenge

-Wear a tie without a jacket for a day and look good while doing it.

 

Affiliate Vendor Challenge

-Wear at least two pieces of clothing from different affiliate vendors.

 

The Odd Accessory Challenge

-Include one item in your photo meant to complement your fit

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I hesitate in this as it's more about a picture that something you wear. But this also increases the possibility of us getting to see Butler with a sword.

 

 

 

At this point, I am VERY open to suggestions.....

Please, for the love of God, no. I'm an IT technician.

 

BTW, the poll is set to end tomorrow, 0:00 GMT, not sure if that's OK - that's what I'd swear I remember from other challenges.
