    Tirailleur1 is my favorite new member from the past year or so.

    A Harris was respected on MC and SWD. When I say "He is missed," I mean it.

    There are people with model/mannequin like builds. And there are good dressers.

    I see some mistaken one for the other.

    True. I do think that a lot of the members that have already been mentioned, whether they have the model/mannequin physique or not, have paid such close attention to fit that most of their wardrobe flatters them. Not that you can magically transform a body shape, but those bad fits that you can't quite put a finger on are the result of accentuating the wrong areas or not accentuating the proper areas to achieve a good shape.

    The two aren´t necessarily mutually exlusive though are they ? I really like MaoMaos fits for instance, but it helps a lot that he has an athletic build Imo. Physique in other words plays quite a big role. There are some - shall I say - portly dressers on here and in the blogosphere, who without a doubt put a lot of effort into their outfits, but they always start out with a disadvantag compared to the less gravity challenged gentlemen - at least in my book...

    Lots of nice ensembles are posted here, but to me TTO and Tirailleur stand out.

    However, I would never aspire to dress like them, because that requires a level of charisma that I don't have [​IMG]

    If I had to pick a role model that would be people like Vox, Manton, mafoofan, Edmorel or DocHolliday, but some of them are gone and those who aren't don't post pics anymore, so...
