    In general, I like sloppy. But cuts I dislike don't become more appealing to me just because they have a few years on 'em.

    Had the contest been between B and this one:

    I'd have voted for ^


    Me too. Simone is a genius. He's the only guy allowed to wear clip on suspenders...

    How does this resemble a? Edit: oops I was fixating on just the cuts, but I guess anything is o.k., including styling.

    B looks like an idealized version of that swedish guy's mtm disaster coat.

    I voted for A but did so without a ton of enthusiasm, though if that jacket fit better I think the whole look would come together.

    Just as a representative of the "not new, neat and pristine" camp.

    Yes, I agree. I just can't get past those shoulders.

    Dopey's Rubinacci Controversy thread inspired me to start this poll: do you prefer A or B?

    I dislike plenty of things about both A and B and would feel wrong voting for either.

    Damn, I've become a third party voter. [​IMG]

    B for sure. Too much garbage going on in A.

    B is the better out of the two.

    I don't see what's the matter with B.

    So what if A's jacket is a bit of a mess? Some of you people obsess far too much over very human and unavoidable missteps. The man and his outfit clearly have some personality and natural style.

    B is just another GQ-reading drone.

    I've managed to avoid shoulders that look like that without much effort.

    B only because neither is interesting nor convincingly executed... but B is less egregious so I prefer it.

    A is not great, and soft can be and is done much better, but if I have to choose, A is definitely more to my liking than B.
