    Voting not quite closed yet, but I think Crusty has this one in the bag. And well deserved too.

    BTW that windowpane tweed reminds me of the "Agnelli" tweed, recently replicated in a LL Cloth Club offering which I happened to subscribe to - right now, it remains an unfunded liability.

    Kulata and Cleav's DB fits were pretty damn good too. Good stuff all around.

    Time for a no hanky (PS) panky challenge, Crusty!

    I'm back.

    Congrats to upr_crust. I look forward to a typically challenging new challenge from him.

    I'm hoping it's not an antique watch challenge, however ... [​IMG]

    In addition to the top two vote-getters, I especially liked Kulata's and Cleav's.

    But hell, these were all good. There's a reason gray is classic.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    Thank you all, gentlemen - it was an unexpected honor, and I will credit my MTM man at Brooks Brothers for picking out the fabric of the suit, and cajoling me to have it made (not that it took that much cajoling, mind you).

    I will decide upon a theme for the next challenge, though I will need a volunteer to administer the thread, once it's up, as I'll be out of town from very early Saturday AM until Tuesday evening - visiting Toronto, and possibly meeting up with some of the locals who post in these parts.
