We've just had Idul-Fitri here, which means that this week there's no traffic in Jakarta. A paradise for cyclists! So I'm me at my me-est this week, but that's not SF approved:

If I had to enter one fit for this challenge, then it would have to be this one from a month or two ago:

  • I'm more a suit guy than a SC/odd trousers one.
  • I think people on SF see me as someone who prefers bold colours (I'm not sure I actually do...).
  • I've learned here on SF how much photography matters.
  • This fit features my favourite suit, my favourite shirt and my favourite PS. The tie is at least one of my favourites.

Hmmm. Fit bastard. Me envy. (Note to self: drink less beer.)

Very nice idea! I'll participate, maybe with a new fit, maybe with an old one... we'll see.

I believe that today's attire captures most of my stylistic excesses - I believe it to be "Crusty to the Core".

Yeah, and in my case the winter suits - my 'me-ist' is very much 3-piece tweed...

EFV - that is epic!

Some really nice stuff here so far. I think I am pretty sure what Clags will post.

I am still not sure what I will/would post.

Re: time constraint.

 

I think you have the most chance of showing us a fit that demonstrates a peak awareness of your style if it's recent, given that style does evolve a bit over time, if only slowly. So, ideally, it should be from this week. Plus, it's just plain more fun to use the challenges as inspiration to put something together rather than just trawl through the archives.

 

(However, if that's well & truly genuinely impractical, shall we say something from within the last couple of months or so? That should provide a reasonable balance between recency and practicability.)

I hope you do; I'm genuinely curious to see what you might pick. I have a vague idea, but of all the regulars, I'm least certain about what you might choose.

 

crusty - re: the Rorschach comment. I wouldn't go that far, but I was certainly aware of the psychological aspects of the challenge! ;)

I better participate in my own challenge!

Vaguely 80s-ish, tamed slightly with some more classic touches, and with a much improved fit from what I used to wear... but still a bit flashy! And of course, black shoes with a navy suit!!

post #27 of 138

It's going to be very difficult to vote on these. So far, Crusty, EliodA and Holdfast have each posted fits that exemplify their styles perfectly. I could pick any of them out of a police line-up just on the basis of these pictures! So they've all already succeeded in doing what the challenge asked.

i am immensely unsure.

Holdfast has captured his Smart But Leery™ aesthetic to perfection.
post #30 of 138

Really interesting idea, @Holdfast. I feel like there are two different fits I could go with if I enter. Excited to see what the rest of the group comes up with.
