    There's no way Crusty can't win. That many stripes and you don't look like a clown.

    Clarinet Player and Uppr for me.



    Betelgeuse? What was with your tie? No mirror that day? Stevie Wonder could have told you it was out of place!

    I rather liked the twist, actually. But I'm aware that sprezz isn't SF approved. I like a little bit of my rear blade showing at the top. Not as much as Betel did.

    For the first time, I thought more fits deserved votes than didn't. Nice work, gentlemen.

    Some of the time when I tie a tie, it's a DFIH with the rear blade showing ever so slightly all the way down. This is probably highly against SF rules. But, just like Stitchys lack of PS, it's some times my thing to wear it that way. I think it looks nice, especially on my longer ties.

    PS, you got one of my votes. The tie helped.

    We'll call that the double-double. I love it, probably my favorite fit this week. And one of the very few times I've liked the look of a contrast collar shirt.

    I had no idea, probably bought this 40 years ago :embar: Upon scrutiny of the lining, I see that it is made by French Façonnable! :bigstar:

    Affirmative - but one should wait until deadline, before assuming a win, me think :bigstar:

    The new challenge is up; It's not only a challenge for the individual participants, but also challenging one of Style Forums group think idiosyncrasies:

    THE GRAY ODD JACKET (AND SOMETIMES MONOCHROMATIC COMBINATION)

    There are historic as well as nowadays provenance for this combination, yet hated by so many members, so get your thinking caps on, gentlemen!

    Jackets should be worn with a tie, no ventilated shoes, pocket square, and socks are optional.

    Entry closes at midnight EST on Friday. Poll closes on Monday at noon EST. Multiple votes will be allowed. I don't care when the fit was worn.

    Finally, I highly encourage a full body shot as well as detail shot . Let's go.
