This Valentine's Day, wear your heart on your spalla.

 

Bring out your FU jackets.

 

Here are the rules for the challenge:

  • shirt and tie are a must, (don't forget to put on some form of trousers);
  • the jacket can be an odd jacket or, if feeling slightly ballsy, as a full FU suit ensemble (this is not compulsory, of course)

 

Added conditions:

  • fit must be from the challenge week (no archived fits);
  • multi-voting will be allowed;
  • don't tell your friends that you put up a fitpic for a Friday Challenge, especially if they're Australian.

 

Deadline for submission of pics is Sunday Feb 16, 09.00 CET (=UTC+1).

 

Voting ends 48 hours after the deadline for submissions.

 

Good luck and good health, gents.

 

No Clue about FU? Here are some clues - heed at your own risk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Need more inspiration? Just google "pitti uomo"

 

 

 

Note: pinstripes aren't FU enough - unless yours is Hosni Mubrarak-level pinstripe.

I don't know if this is FU enough for this contest, but it's certainly eccentric enough.

I ruined their act, as I simply stood there without any reaction at all. There must be some sort of Valentine FU in all this beyond my Glen Plaid tweed jacket.

Brooks Brothers tweed jacket, blue OCBD, and cotton sweater vest, Hardy Amies tie, Thomas Pink pocket square, Land's End trousers, and Allen Edmonds shoes.

And red shoes with tassled laces definitely count as flash (okay, they're burgundy, but anything brighter than darkest oxblood will stand out in my neighborhood).

My fuckiest fall/winter jacket, with which I couldn't get a challenge worthy fit.



And my official submission.

Do you measure lapels horizontally, or along the seam of the gorge.

I don't know if my jacket has 4.5" or 5" lapels.

Or what pants I am going to wear with this atrocity.

Not sure if this is true but a rep from Dormeuil told me the cloth for that Mubarak suit (Which they made) costs $10k a yd.

Not sure which of these two sources are more reliable, but that sounds about half right. Appears to be H&S, not Dormeuil.

John Serafino on Pitt St offers the personal pinstripe. Only robber barons and military strongmen need apply.

Think how dope that would look with "sugarbutch" as the stripe. I may have to start a clothing line to justify doing it. You'll help me out, Tira?
post #11 of 211
I have seen that pinstripe with name here in Mexico but from Scabal. Price is stupidly high when you put it in pesos.

As for the challenge, I might be in, I wore the outfit that would have qualified today and didn't took a pic. frown.gif

Price is stupidly high in any currency, I'd reckon.
