Jacket I most wish I owned:    Monkeyface

 

Suit I most wish I owned:  Butler (though I’d never be able to wear it; upr_crust a close runner up and I could wear it)

 

Best world weary FU facial non-expression:   Roycru

 

Most perfect tie length:  Claghorn

 

Most (purposefully) annoying jacket:  ReubenR

 

Best counterexample to dark top/light bottom “rule”:   in stitches

 

Most FU solid jacket:  An Acute Style

 

Cheers,

Interesting challenge. There were quite a few nicely put-together fits with too-sedate jackets, and a few wild jackets within outfits that added nothing to the jacket. Four outfits stood out for me as being both different/eye-catching enough to be FU, while still being well put-together ensembles: Monkeyface, luv2breformed, An Acute Style & Butler.

 

Overall, AAS was my favourite, partly because the Valentine's theme added a little bit of extra cheekiness to the look.

 

Good theme, and entries.

Loved Butler's suit and IMO there were a couple other very solid honorable mentions, but AAS was a solid step or two ahead of the pack for me on this one.

Butler, well done.

But, but … my heart-motif PS!  :butbut:

 

The internet is a cold, unfeeling place …   ;)

Looks like AAS is going to get Butlered for the second week running.

hard not to really.

True dat. That suit is a killer.

Cutaway collar, what's the love or otherwise ?
post #146 of 211
Two middle fingers up....WAAAAY up for Butler. No one even came close to saying "FU" in such an intense and profane manner.



Honorable mention votes to Stitchy and AAS. Stichy because it is just a great piece and AAS for going with the unexpected.

I think they call him Butler because he stays serving people.



Great fit, Butler. Thanks for all the votes, gents.

Had it not been for three of the rules (jacket, tie, and a picture from this week) the Duke Of Windsor might have won.......

I voted DC and AAS, because they had made the greatest efforts to be truly FU, while still just about remaining in the realm of taste. Butler's suit is one of my absolute favourites ever, and I have something similar (back at home in Ontario), but it isn't FU in my book.

I really want the next challenge to be FU pants, or at least patterned trousers.
