    After the last two challenges with not much participants, it´s good to have so many well dressed participants.

    I think this is cleared up, but just in case: I am. And I hope I am being both consistent and inclusive. Only Victor Elfo so far doesn't qualify (because dominant color of the Donegal seems to be gray, though I'm happy to reconsider if others disagree or Victor can post a truer to life picture).

    I also think there were a sufficient number of last minute entries to carry on as planned. So I will put the poll up early this afternoon eastern time, once the baby is fed and the older kiddies transfixed to Dora or some such.


    Sorry for all the controversy and confusion! Let's focus on the awesomeness of the entries!

    One of several tailors recommended as decent on the Korean Style Forum (a scary and hateful place...seriously; imagine the same vitriol as CE but applied to clothing and taken to a far more personal level). I went through a few to find one I liked, and though I was mostly happy with the finished product, their attitude was crap. Tried to convince me not to get patch pockets ("People don't get patch pockets these days." "That's alright, I like them." "But people don't really get them. They aren't in style.") and commented that my desired jacket length (covering my ass) was unusual.

    Don't know why pic quality sucks so bad, but whatever:

    Clags the standout IMO. I want to like TTO's but the mafia collar is simply unforgivable. Tirailleur's photo is great photo of a nice black suit and a painting of another nice black suit, as far ask can tell.

    Don't sweat it clags, they just had to handicap you so you don't completely run away with it and embarrass everyone else. You'll still win.

    An extremely good field of entries. Overall, Claghorn is my favourite (and, moreover, I suspect he will indeed win).

    Being a good farmer, though, my voting seed has been sown liberally across the whole field.

    You guys forget I'm up against The Beard. He's at least as scary as Butler.

    I went for Victor Elfo. I REALLY wanted to go for Betelguese on this one, but I just couldn't get onboard with the trousers. The top half and the shoes are fantastic. If the trousers were dark grey, he would've had my vote above all others.

    Thanks, anyway. I need to get some measurements right to get a few trousers that fit nice. I hope, soon. :D

    It would be more efficient to say who didn't get my vote this week, but that would be rude, so I'll say instead that this was a good week for the challenge.
