Thanks to Claghorn for recognizing the excellence of the goose.  I was particularly pleased that like my outfit it’s dark brown up top and light brown below ...

 

I also thought the light bay thoroughbred and the chestnut quarter horse were good matches, especially as the latter has a white blaze on his face and the pink of his nose is pretty much my own skin color.

 

Ah, the things one thinks about after a few years on SF …

 

Cheers,

 

Ac :D

Here it's cool enough to get a tweed 3-piece out for the first time this year. This one is J-Press, a bargain straight from ebay, and it fits me perfectly without a single alteration to either pants or jacket - even the trouser cuffs are exactly the height I like - how awesome it that? I have no idea how old it is, but has the old Amalgamated garment workers label inside the interior pocket - and it is in A1 condition. Next time I wear it, I'll actually try to make sure I take a decent picture... (tie is PRL, shirt is BBGF, and it's worn with - unseen - brown captoe brogues)

JCM's Thanksgiving Awards (what I'm thankful for in this batch):
EFV's abundance of layers
Cox's linen that floweth like wine
Noodle's full plate of nationalistic pride (tie)
Crusty's heaping helping of happy pie in his lifestyle pic (which required unspoilering)

But most of all, I have to give this batch to cezinho - two fits that I think are very rich and difficult to achieve, display a strongly developed sense of style. For reals.

Alright, so, I started a batch and got maybe 20 deep when I realized that well over half the pictures were making the cut. On one hand, I think the average quality of outfits and photography has increased dramatically. On the other hand, we have, in part as a result of this thread, become much more participative in terms of using thumbs. Which is definitely a good thing. But it also means that the 20 thumb minimum is probably not enough of a minimum. So I'm unilaterally changing raising the bar to 25 thumbs. I can probably be talked back down to 20 if anyone has good reason. Also talked up to 30.

post #1853 of 2070
I feel OK. I got thumbs but Crusty got pie.
post #1854 of 2070

I would say 30. This should be a collection of greatly appreciated fits not just good fits. 

post #1855 of 2070

At least 25, my late fits got 20+ almost every time, so ratings must be wrong :)

post #1856 of 2070

I was thinking about proposing this too. 25 or 30 both fine by me. Clags, your thread, you decide.

post #1857 of 2070
Changing the threshold doesn't do much, still a popularity contest of some sort. Pointing out fits that could be improved by the curators or by anybody would be a better learning experience

Agreed. Though we've tried to inject some discussion in this thread, but there weren't many takers.
Also, @UrbanComposition's insightful comments in his own curated thread are sorely missed.
post #1859 of 2070
I would say bump it up to 30 but I see visits going down during warm seasons.

Pretty sold on 30 here.

Agreed. We should have a WAYWRN Composite Thread-5 Thumb Maximum ^_^

I do think bumping it up to 30, even 25, changes it quite a lot. If you go and look at the outfits that get thirty, they are for the most part excellent. Not that popularity doesn't play a role in garnering 5-10 or so thumbs, but on average, a 30 cut off would make the outfit quality in this thread increase dramatically.

But yeah, it would only be marginally more educational without discussion.
