Folks with multiple pictures, please go back and indicate (via edit) which you'll want posted in the poll. I'll be spoilering the rest. 12ish more hours until entries are closed and the poll are opened.

Some good entries this week, but some clear favourites: Spoo's is excellent, but I'm not sure that it's any better than EFV's, if you account for photo quality, and I like Tirailleur's a lot. PKL and Coxsackie are up there too.

And there is only one truly dreadful fit so far...

It's brootul in here!

Well, maybe I can add to the tally of dreadful fits with my own - it will have to be one from earlier this year since I don't have any DB suits or jackets here with me in Japan. I don't think I'd wear this silver grenadine again with this particular suit (which was made by a good but long vanished London tailor in 1960 BTW). I was trying for subtlety, I think it went over the line into undifferentiated. I think I was wearing this with black austerity brogues, but you can't see them. Links are also 1950s vintage. Shirt is Dunhill.

Claghorn, History's Greatest Villain, has ruled that all entries must have been worn this week.

Well, that's fine. I don't really care about the competition, I"m more interested in the fits whenever they are from.

FM, if you're going to be reasonable, we're never going to get anywhere. Cut that out.

So double double breasted? Quad breasted? Octo breasted? It's been a very double breasted week. I actually wore one the past three days but neglected to photograph yesterdays ensemble, with a bow tie none the less (yes, Mr. Sartoria I managed to wear it un-ironicly.)

I can't decide whether I prefer the too-tight or too-loose outfit; so Claghorn, I'll leave it up to you.

Happy Friday gentlemen. This is shaping up to be a very good contest. Excellent choice!

I almost forgot, something ridiculous arrived yesterday. It's double breasted... but would be much better suited for a Pitti contest next spring.... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I certainly don't think you can ever have too many. My suit wardrobe is about 50%/50%, 95% three piece.
