    Tom Ford. It was one of the first results in the Google images, but I noticed that the link is from an SF post probably something from B&S. LOL

    I agree with Clags here. A suit is the easy road and should not get as high points as separates.

    Dear Stitchie,

    I cannot enter this contest because I don't have any PoWs!
    Please do windowpanes next time![​IMG]

    I think some if you are making a grave mistake. It is not about what is "hardest" per se. It is about what is most awesome. And without a doubt a GP/PoW suit is the most awesome interpretation of this challenge. Anybody else who says otherwise can suck it.

    What about the single-vote rule, Stitchy?

    Don't own anything that would qualify - lots of 'panes, checks & tartans but no PoW/GP - but will enjoy watching the contest unfold regardless!

    HF, I am disappoint in you. I would have expected you to have at least 3 or 4 options to choose for.

    I used to have that boldly checked Ferragamo DB, which would have qualified as glen plaid. I am eyeing up a couple of S/S SS items that would also just about skate in under the definition, so it's not like I have an aversion to the pattern. It just happens that I have a variety of other plaids & checks.

    Oh, hang on, does this jacket count? It's not the typical colour or scale, but does have that intersecting plaid pattern that results in a houndstooth at the point of intersection. I guess, when I think of glen plaid, I think of the characteristic scale & blue/grey (or brown) fabric, not all the more unusual variants.

    yes that absolutely counts. all color ways and all scales are allowed as long as it the GP/PoW plaid check.

    excellent submission, DC and SB.
