    Your shortlist, chosen by a complicated classified heuristic process (i.e. my discretion), culled from all the full-length fit pics in the CBD & WAYWRN threads since last Friday, ordered by formality of outfit.

    Ranger:

    Nii:

    Foo:

    The poll is just a bit of fun, so don't take it too seriously! It struck me that we had some well-executed examples right across the formality range this past week, and I liked them all, so thought it would be fun to compare them in one post.

    Commentary on your vote is very welcome too!

    Thanks. I hope all take it in the spirit intended: a one-off amusing little divertimento to accompany the end of the working week, partly to demonstrate that SF can still exhibit some good looks right across the formality range and across two threads, and partly just for laughs. PS. I voted Foo, despite the too-large IMO turn-ups. The colours and patterns are pleasing to the eye, the fit is good and with some nice personal details (the shades, the apparently very soft shirt collar). A good balance of personal expression and care.

    One thing I think we can all agree on is that this is really a race for second place.

    You're right. Given the radical nature of it, I have to think that Digmenow's transformative fit yesterday takes top honors for the week.

    All of the fits are great... When people wears clothing that fits them perfectly, the only thing that could make one look better than the other is based on the physique of the wearer. Therefore, I can't vote for any single one being better since it seems they all fit the wearer's physique great.

    I enjoy Foo's fits in general, but they continue to discredit his One Shoe theory.

    I agree with AB, oneshoe has to go.

    Voted for Nii, because nobody else can pull off something like that as consistently as he does.

    Those are all great looks. Nii is looking extra fresh there, so I voted for him. I think very few dudes can pull off really bright colors.

    Mao's tux is beautiful. It's nice to see a classic staple done so well.

    so .... "fit" now means "outfit"?



    I guess that's why some guy here was asking about "the fitment of this trench coat" or some such.

    I didn't vote for Nii and i regret it because his fit is the hardest to get since he has some extra pounds ...
