WAYWRN Composite -- 20 thumb minimum - Page 77
Styleforum Top Picks
Thumbing has become increasingly liberal since starting this thread. I don't think this is a bad thing, as the greater volume of thumbs allows for a more rigorous understanding of what has been approved of by the crowd (two fits that would have got an 8 and a 10 a couple of years ago might now get a 16 and a 20, highlighting the difference in quality per crowd standards)
But I've been toying with the idea of increasing the thumb minimum to 25. Thoughts?
Best batch. Everybody gets an award and Braddock has been firing on all cylinders lately.

What this thread needs is more commentary. Raising thumbs threshold is not going to prevent average fits and will only limit the number of good fits in this very successful thread. We all know that the number of thumbs is not directly correlated to the quality of the individual fit and we have a lot of excellent fits not getting past 16 thumbs coz the wearer isn't well known and then we have head shots.

One of the few benefits of not trawling through WAYWRN on a daily basis is that when I compile, I think I'm less likely to miss fits. It used to be, having seen many of the fits multiple times, I'd quickly skim through the thread, leading to some fits being skipped. This time, almost every fit was new to me, so I was thumbing as I went and don't think I missed any.

Woohoo! Thank you, Clags!
Thanks, my man. I must admit I'm rather pleased with it as well.
This. I find it suprising that this fit only got 24 likes. Which leads us to this:
I would love to see more discussion about the fits in this thread. We've tried that a few times before though and the response was at best lukewarm... Then again, this thread delivers exactly what the title suggests: a compilation of WAYWRN fits that got 20 thumbs or more. That's all. No claims about quality or so.
However, more discussion would be good for this thread, I think. So just for the heck of it, I did this:
