This week what else could we have done but Immagine that we were at Pitti Uomo 90 with @EFV and all the Beau Monde?

 

I called the Challenge Pitti Peacock?

 

Back then, on Wednesday we were just beginning to see the first of Erik and Erica's excellent pics.  Now we have seen so many we may feel we were actually there.  So, who did it best?  We have a great range from the peacock end of the spectrum to the more formal - reflecting the Pitti pics themselves.

 

The poll closes at midnight Monday and is multiple choice.

Yes, I remembered it was a good one and, lacking other inspiration, it was an easy choice now.

Never. But ...

Although the two are decidedly NOT equivalent, there may be some interesting things going on if the Southern Trad crew gets involved in this. I may have a day at the track coming up next weekend. If I end up going I might post here just to see how the SoTrad element jives, or does not, with Pitti peacockery.
