    I voted based on average taste displayed rather than occasional epic failures (in which case Moo would get the vote)

    Choosing between the average worst and the worst worst really does pose quite the conundrum, doesn't it? However, I checked Moo's most recent outfit and it swung the balance for me.

    Moo, taste aside, none of your jackets fit well. It's pretty indicative that you look much less top-heavy in your casual clothes. Can you please see Chan or something?

    Oh yes, what a terrible thing to wear to a cemetery. [​IMG] And regarding fit... it fits fine. It's not perfect. It's not bespoke or MTM. It's not to your standard. Get over it.

    I don't see how the fact you were visiting a cemetary justifies it. The call for sombriety doesn't necessitate wearing multiple shades of grey or a confusion of textures and patterns.

    And regarding fit... it fits fine. It's not perfect. It's not bespoke or MTM. It's not to your standard. Get over it.

    It's bad. Hence, I won't get over it.

    I wore what I wore. You don't like it? Oh well. Vote for me. What can I tell you?

    I want to like and respect you, and I understand that Moo is a fun kicking-post, but god you're an insufferable dick sometimes.

    I've said it a hundred times: Foo is a short little guy with a bad Napoleon Complex who isn't anything like this in real life to people he barely/doesn't know.

    If he were just a fun kicking post, I'd be sympathetic--in fact, I'd probably stick up for him. However, he's not nearly so passive or innocent as that.

    You don't like that I'm short or that I criticize your clothes on a clothing forum, but I'm the one with a complex?

    Oy. You're not allowed to be gracious! Jeezus, now I feel bad about voting for Moo.

    Foo, you are the instigator in every one of our chats. You always talk shit about my clothes (I don't care how you put it - you're talking shit and you and I both know you wouldn't say shit in "real life"), and I always come back with "I can alter the jacket but you can't alter your height." I'm really good at just plodding away, so as long as you bring the hate, I'll bring the lulz.

    Oh no you guys have it all wrong. I'm the undisputed master of style run amuck. Who else in their right mind would wear a dark charcoal suit with no belt, an Under Armor Cold Gear long sleeve pullover shirt and dirty nasty shit kicker Ariat roper boots in public?

    there is bad taste and there is bad fit, we should be clear what we are voting on. This will come as a shock but, recently, I do not think Moo's taste has been bad, but his fit has (I have not seen his cemetery outfit). KB is another one where it is more the fit than the taste, exotic skin shoes not withstanding. For me, if I were to vote, which I am not, I would look at it from the perspective of who on the list has the least amount, if any, of clothing that I would wear. There are others not on this list that would get my vote before any of those on it.
