    Well, that's fine. I don't really care about the competition, I"m more interested in the fits whenever they are from.

    FM, if you're going to be reasonable, we're never going to get anywhere. Cut that out.

    So double double breasted? Quad breasted? Octo breasted? It's been a very double breasted week. I actually wore one the past three days but neglected to photograph yesterdays ensemble, with a bow tie none the less (yes, Mr. Sartoria I managed to wear it un-ironicly.)

    I can't decide whether I prefer the too-tight or too-loose outfit; so Claghorn, I'll leave it up to you.

    Happy Friday gentlemen. This is shaping up to be a very good contest. Excellent choice!

    I almost forgot, something ridiculous arrived yesterday. It's double breasted... but would be much better suited for a Pitti contest next spring....

    I certainly don't think you can ever have too many. My suit wardrobe is about 50%/50%, 95% three piece.

    Just got this in from my tailor last week and glad to have an excuse to take it on its maiden voyage.

    Did hit make it. Though my boring old boating jacket and grey flnnels is not likely to have won, anyway. Stupid work.

    This is superb. The tailoring of the coat is sleek and comfortable looking. The solid colors of the coat, trousers, and tie provide the perfect frame for the stripes on the shirt.

    I don't think I've ever voted for a higher percentage of entries; about 60%! Excellent theme & strong field. [​IMG]

    Overall fave remains Tirailleur. B Bear, Spoo, Don C & Piccolo round out my top 5.

    A lot of strong entries but I believe Spoo and Tirailleur presented the best cases for formal and casual use of DB. B.Bear was good but his shirt collar killed the look. But great fits all around.

    Spoo for me.

    Mr. D - thanks.

    Really enjoyed looking over so many appealing DB fits, guys.
