    I might have to buy you two weeks in Palm Beach to sear your retina.

    Can I wear a horseblanket coat in Palm Beach?

    Vox, should you win the you're matt contest, would not that make a future contest of You're Vox less attractive as the forum already knows who the winner would be?

    Well, it seems that Matt's mostly 3 roll 2.5. So there might still be a market for a contest of You're Vox in DB, in one button suit, etc.

    I assure you, there is no market whatsoever for a "You're Vox" contest, not unless we expect electric fences around insane asylums to suddenly fail.

    At any rate, as I predicted, I have won this contest. Matt, please pick out the Rubinacci tie that smells least like Aqua Velva...I don't want to be completely overpowered when I open the envelope.

    Thank you.

    My attempt... [​IMG]

    The good and the bad

    - Cashmere plaid 3-2 roll jacket (grr, no patch pockets)
    - OCBD shirt (grr, it's white, not cream or blue, plus not enough tie space since I never wear them done up normally)
    - Suitably dark Marinella tie (grr, not unlined)
    - slim cut plaid trousers with minimal break (grr, no 2" cuffs)
    - cream cotton pocket square in square fold with rolled edges showing

    Things I remembered about my likes and dislikes

    - I really, really, really hate wearing OCBDs done up and with ties. It bugged me all day long.
    - the jacket really needs an inch of length taking off the sleeves. I'll wait until I rotate the jacket out of my wardrobe when spring really hits us.

    Things I learnt about iammatt

    - it's really difficult to copy his posture. I don't know what that says about his, because mine is already pretty bad!
    - I have no idea what kind of shoes he wears.
    - dude makes it look simpler than it is.
    - his wardrobe is very, very different from mine - it was a major stretch to even come up with this very vague approximation.

    ^ Dang...that's pretty good. The whole plaid-on-plaid captures his essence.

    Contest is back on.

    First dookey, now Matt's essence.

    I feel... soiled & violated.

    That's what comes of wearing OCBDs with ties. [​IMG]

    Solid effort Holdfast, but I think the solid cream TV-fold pocket square throws a wrench in things.

    Many things throw a wrench into that effort! ... but the cream square actually has a floral design woven into it.

    I think I agree with this. Life imitating art imitating iammatt. [​IMG]

    I don't know. It's not like we have to guess his wife's weight like other threaks around here.

    It is less creepy now that it is just another Vox Santorum threak.

    You removed the shirtless pic of yourself from your photobucket?
