This poll doesn't end until tomorrow, but I think we can go ahead and call @Butler the winner.  Congrats, sir.  :bigstar: 

 

I know we've been having a lot of idol chatter about the next challenge, but it is his call.  Let's get this next challenge on the road.  

 

Thanks for all the votes, gents.  :inlove:

Casual.

MaoMao, I believe.

 

 

And George Cortina

Seems like a challenge better suited for summer.

Maybe the plaid plaid world challenge?

My first thought was that makes that fit so great is the trousers. I didn't even notice the shirt at first. When I did notice it, I started to think that it wasn't the optimal choice - but then, if I didn't notice it until I was forced to, clearly the organic success of the fit renders the concentration on specifics irrelevent... (SF circular logic problems!)

Can be done.

It can be done. But I would bet large sums that for a FC most fits would be trainwrecks.

Isn't that what makes the C in FC (speaking as someone who has never bested the C, of course).
post #207 of 211
lol. imo, the C is not too look like a wreck, its to succeed. i think asking the general public to come up with something not ridiculous for this idea is asking a lot. i dont even think i would play because my wardrobe is not broad enough to do this unforced.

its one thing for a challenge to make you think a little harder about using your wardrobe, and making pairing, but when you have to start really forcing things, that when things fly off the rails imo.

Whelp, it's Wednesday. So we are at best going to have two days to be up for the challenge.
