What would separate PoW pents and PoW SC score you? One million extra points?

I hate all this early voting but have to commend Don for jumping out of the blocks with a flying start. And to crush the track and field metaphor just a little more, he has set the bar high for the rest of the chasing pack. Looking forward to this one. Good choice Stitchy.

In general I am also against any extra points for the challenges.

But let me explain my considerations for this. When I decided on the challenge it was my intention to only allow suits or sportcoats. While it is true that in certain respects doing this challenge using pants might be harder, it is not the idea I had in mind.

However, I was conversing with clags last night, and he requested allowing pants. Because I love him so much and don't really want to say no I'm inclined to allow it, but I would deduct a voting point because it is not really the thing that I had in mind.

I have not made up my mind definitively, but that is the quandary.

Crusty, as I said before, you will be missed.

Ian, I am glad you approve.

Tom Ford. It was one of the first results in the Google images, but I noticed that the link is from an SF post probably something from B&S. LOL

Actual opinion: I did the bonus vote thing for that particular challenge because I wanted to encourage people to wear as many SF Family items as possible (otherwise, people would just post a square/tie combo and call it a day). I don't think the bonus is a good idea in general though. My .02

I agree with Clags here. A suit is the easy road and should not get as high points as separates.

Dear Stitchie, 

 

I cannot enter this contest because I don't have any PoWs!

Please do windowpanes next time!:censored:

I think some if you are making a grave mistake. It is not about what is "hardest" per se. It is about what is most awesome. And without a doubt a GP/PoW suit is the most awesome interpretation of this challenge. Anybody else who says otherwise can suck it.
