+2. That tie is 8 Bit.

Ahem (2).

post #172 of 225

Was a very nice challenge. 

 

Talking about suits: my fave is Pingson, followed by tchoy... but I don't know if my eye is tricking me but the shoulders look a bit wear. Although it's an awesome fit. And unbelragazzo.... damn iPhone did not let us appreciate the fit as it should. 

 

In terms of combos: Clags, DonSansimeon and RogerP. 

 

I gave votes to others too but I forgot one for DonCologne! Can you remember that, estitchy, in case it's needed? :D

Everyone looks great this week, and I voted for a lot of people. Good job, I think this puts the idea that navy on navy is somehow verboten to rest.
post #177 of 225

There were lots of very good fits this week, but two for me stood out just slightly above the rest: tchoy and Pingson. I'm sure umbelragazzo's was also excellent IRL, but I just couldn't tell from the photo, sorry. I also liked Sugarbutch and Crusty's attempt to shake things up with a bow-tie because if there was anything tricky about this one is that too many of the 'very good' also looked very similar to each other...

Pingson ALL 'DA WAY~~~
post #179 of 225
A lot of great fits this week. To me the message is that while navy on navy can be problematic, if you have a bit of skill you can make it look good. I still think that putting together a suit and tie of similar color requires a bit of extra care, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. Navy on navy isn't impossible to do but it also isn't idiot proof.

First, congrats to all -  no-one's a disgrace and the standard  is really high.  I'm making my decision based on fit - the color (and from what i can make out of the texture) combos are all fine.

 

Tony Choy, Umbel and OD/OT  are a dead heat IMHO,  with special mention to SeaJen, the Doc and Stitches.
