You looked fabulous as usual. Dissension is the ultimate compliment.

Some egos have been slightly bruised in the process, though hardly mine - I am taking this all in with an attitude of ironic bemusement.

I have had all kinds of hangups about whether you can wear X with Y, this with that, etc. etc. Those hangups are generally rooted in my understanding of what is traditionally acceptable. One of those hangups was wearing a tie with jeans.

Then I went to Italy and saw the most stylish dudes ever doing it and looking awesome. And I'm not talking about the average dudes, but legitimately stylish men with clear personal style. There were also poorly dressed Italian dudes, and probably a lot wearing a tie with jeans, but I didn't notice them because the dudes doing it well are the ones who caught my attention. Anyway. Goes to show that the rules can and should inform what you do, but can't be elevated above looking great.

Interesting that you two, @moss, @upr are ones I look most forward to seeing on SF. Keep bringing the great style and uplifting my day.

Awesome challenge, though tough to vote (some fits looked really good but didn't seem to really be casual fits). Thanks to whoever kindly voted for me in spite of my awful photography and absence of a full length shot. Based on the votes thus far, I think Formosa should be an honorary co-winner.

Congratulations Mcfox. A well deserved win. It's difficult to pull off the suit and t-shirt look without looking like Miami Vice era Don Johnson but you managed!
post #126 of 145
I look forward to McFox's use of that suit with a collared shirt.

Congrats, McFox!  I'm pretty surprised that I came in 3rd....thanks for the votes, guys.

Thanks all for the votes and kind remarks! I'm a bit surprised I can out on top. Does that mean I get to figure out the next challenge? Any ideas?

That's the only way to take it.

Well done. Let´s have a new challenge!

#Menswear At least one item has to be a current or previous item in the #menswear-world. Think casentino, dubmunks etc.

 

Grandpa-style. Dress like an older relative.

 

Purple. One or more items in purple.

 

FU-jacket. No explanation needed.

 

Suede kicks.

Anden's idea sounds like something I'd like to watch, and probably take part in.
post #135 of 145

Which one?
