I'm surprised Holdfast isn't running away with this one. I guess everyone has different tastes, but his fit was one of my favorites ever.

i too expected a HF win here.

Thanks guys. But you should both know by now that SF isn't generally keen on flashy-matchy fits so I'm not surprised; in a way I'm more surprised to have got as many votes as I have this time round. Usually the guaranteed way to do well in the voting is to take a more typically SF-approved fit, add an eye-catching element and photograph it outside in an appropriate context. But I still like wearing flashy-matchy stuff occasionally, and I'm certainly too much lazy to go on an outdoor photo-shoot, so it's nice to have got a fair few votes for/despite that! biggrin.gif

 

It's all good fun anyway!

I'm really feelin' myself on this one.

False modesty lead me to vote for a few other guys as well but now I kinda regret it.

Not because I care who wins but because I don't want to give the impression that they're on my level.

Canta, it's a lovely combination, but IS NOT PURPLE.

Scoreboard.





P.S. My last post wasn't entirely serious.

I know, bro. I know.

Clags talked a good game about what constitutes TEH PURP, but when it came time to be the boss, he allowed something that wasn't between his two black lines on the spectrum.

I would be happy to see Canta win, too, mainly because I think he'd come up with a good challenge.

Mainly because it would be epic and awesome.

I actually asked Cantabrigian to post something that clearly wasn't purple to see how many votes it would garner. I didn't think that drawing lines on the spectrum would be necessary--the voters would demonstrate whether a tie was purple or not.

I don't know which of us has been vindicated by the results. Me, as Canta isn't going to win. He, as many people gave him votes despite his tie not qualifying.

The answer probably lies somewhere between.

Ya, but I had been itching to reveal that Canta was a plant.

You should never be sorry for voting for me. Never.
