It seems like suits are the dominate direction being taken here. I wonder if it's a balance issue...with the top being largely monochrome, it may look a bit odd to have another color on the bottom.

I don't think I can recall another FC where some many entrants went with suits (except for those which required it).

Stitchy, you gonna publicize the vote on the other side? A few folks there provide some interesting insights on CM stuff (cyc wit it off the top of my head, but I know there are 3-4 others that are slipping my mind at the moment)

If you don't vote for me I will find you and slap you.

Or that's another way of putting it.

The full length photo didn't work out, so I'm not entering this. But I played along since it was a suit day and thought I'd post it up for fun.

Somebody should do a challenge on who wears that Hober tie best. Is there anyone who's been on SF for more than 6 months who doesn't have that tie?

I'm not in on many of these - are we seeing a larger number of entries here than usual?  Cool to see to many takes on this theme.

That would actually be an interesting challenge.

 

As far as I know, that tie only got popular recently. It made on appearance a few years ago on the Hober thread, unworn. Then it didn't pop up for a while until I bought it. Then everyone got it. So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm responsible (tongue firmly in cheek). :bigstar:

 

It's an amazingly beautiful tie. It's just hard to wear. I think I wear it least of all my Hobers.

I think I got mine a year and a half ago or so. I think it goes well with PoW check. What makes you say it's hard to wear? It's maybe not ideal for a blue blazer, which seems to be a favorite look of yours (not that I would argue with your preferences there).

The Fair and Kind Ruler of the Friday Challenge has spent a good deal of time doing missionary work in other, darker threads, leading people into the light of this one.

 

I was on the road to Damascus when he found me.

Hmmm, I guess because the combination of a large scale weave and a multistripe, it feels a little busy. Had it been a single stripe (say brown) or fina rather than grossa, I think it would be a little easier to wear. I imagine it would work well with a rough gray flannel as well. I have a gray PoW with blue windowpane that I'm not a huge fan of, but I'll try it out and see how it feels.

 

I do love my blue jackets. :cheers:

Grey PoW with a blue windowpane is exactly what I usually wear it with. This is Minni's Fresco, which is a bit rough, so it perhaps goes better with the grossa weave than a worsted might:

^ Personally, I hate multistripe grenadines. The combination of the pattern and the weave reminds me of an early 80s arcade game; they look all pixellated. I know I'm in the minority, but I just don't get them at all.

See, and you never thought you'd like a tie with so many different colours on it! :p

Really refreshing to see a summery variant on the theme, after so many (necessarily) wintery outfits. Nice one!

OK, OK, consider yourself grandfathered into my last post. :)
