Safe doesn't mean bad. On the contrary, the reason safe is safe is that you can be sure that a large number people will approve of it. Stitchy, yours was the classic example: very well-chosen pieces from solid brands, tastefully coordinated. Very nice indeed, and it fully deserves its votes. All I am saying is that most people, myself included, played it safe, took only a few steps away from CM starting points. Tirailleur, who's currently in the lead, and whose outfit was predictably excellent, was just doing what he normally does. Spoo is another exception, but I'm not really counting him, because he was just wearing costume (a pretty awesome costume, but costume nevertheless). EFV actually stepped much further away from where he started and yet its something that I could still imagine wearing and can appreciate its aesthetics. That's why I would argue that he did better than any of the rest of us.
