Also, I get the feeling that EFV likes tweed suits.

I was going to go with the PoW Formosa of yours, estitchy, but that blue one is awesome too. When I selected, the B&Tailor suit of Clags haven't appeared yet but I will add that one too.

Yeah, we need a top five of the top five lists now. plain.gif

Clags, can you remove EVF from my selection? He's already in his own. censored.gif

I went a different direction with my choices. I actually had a hard time getting past three. Included myself and a doubled Tira to make five.

Computer is acting funny. I'll add a few more tomorrow.

 

Edit: Cleav, that's more than five.

@ timotune, have you tried growing a moustache? I think that it would look a lot better on you. either full shaven or full beard, not neckbeard only IMHO. very nice scarf.

Haha, I did actually want to exchange myself in my top 5, I would prefer to post this one instead.

Anyway, yes, I like tweed suits, probably more so than most other posters on this forum (hell, I'm starting up a new brand with only tweed suits in the first collection).

I chose the stuff I'd wear myself, except for Tira's outfit, which would never look as good on anyone as it does on him.

Clags will do, just let me post this by way of explanation

________________________________________________________


Just my Tuppence worth...


Gentlemen,

Having been asked to collate my 5 (fail), I didn't appreciate how difficult it would be or how enlightening, more importantly.

Braddock- Very good start to finish, top to toe. Shoe, tie and PS combination sings.

In Stitches - Love the look as a whole (black shoes)! which allow a relaxed air of pleasure and comfortable class shine through.

EFV - The summer suit done well! Is it easy to look so at ease in this fit, no I don’t think so. EFV manages it effortlessly and with some panache.

Butler - It is all there in spades. Tailored to perfection, splendid in grey. Yet, with all that there is confidence not arrogance in a sophisticated demeanour and look.

TTO - A classy look, for me, that exudes confidence and panache. TTO provides so much for me in all that he posts, always something to learn and note for future reference.

Pingson - 'The Inimitable'. There are a number of Ping fits to choose from, and with good reason. I went this way YMMV and I wouldn't argue with your/any choice. His self-diagnosed fail (Friday Challenge) was still met with some considerable acclaim. Ping brings it every time and should be adopted as a role model by anyone beginning their sartorial journey.

Claghorn - Always there on the button and this one of his stands out for me. At ease, yet elegant and no doubt, out of shot, a wry smile of confidence to boot.

Tira - I have always admired his posts. Seeing them in this format elevates him/them in my estimation still higher. Cool(!) and contemporary and clearly unbothered by rules or conformity. Much the better for it too.

That said my process for arriving at the above was to click away at my faves (27), culled to 20 based on replication of fit, then 12 with an arbitrary slash of the knife.

My final contribution, above, was based on 'I would like to emulate that look'. All subjective I know but I cannot pay a better complement. (Two of my own culled here, DB and FC ICBD, as I don't need to emulate them)

Learning points for me are clear. I now know better what appeals to me. I should consider more what I like and incorporate more, that to date I have instinctively discounted, into my own fits. I should respond more objectively to other contributors who have different starting points, though I do consider myself to be of the supportive/empowering/constructive contributing band.

Most importantly the clothes we wear can be the canvass on which real class and presence from the wearer shine through. I think that is a thread through what you see above and the many posts I really enjoy not highlighted here.


Thanks Clags for facilitating this, it is excellent.
