    Holy moly! Competition got fierce.

    Also, got the linen trousers today! They feel like the Mandarin and red ones I got from last year.

    What?! My shipment hasn't even left NYC and I'm all the way in Australia.

    Mad jealous.

    I'm not really playing to win here, but I enjoy the contest so I thought I'd contribute. The first is me around 2005, I think. The second is from the other day (Epaulet SC and trousers). Please admire my belt in the first picture. And the visible tee. I can reassure you that I have since cut my hair.

    This contest rules. I'm hitting my folks house this weekend where all of my pics are (yea, I'm old enough to have none of my "before" pics digitized)...

    Loving the combo in your second pic, Simplicio. What are the details on the jacket and trousers?

    SC is the Berberis camel gun check. Trousers are the medium grey flannels (Rudy).

    In case you were interested, the shirt and chinos in the first pic could probably be found at Banana Republic. Or even Express for Men. But I've tried to purge my memory of these details.

    Dude, I had to scan my pictures too and I was born in '85! We used films back a decade ago. Technology has really evolved aggressively in the last 10 years.

    When is the deadline for the contest? I don't recall reading that part...just remember about the cut off date for the before pictures being 16 years old or newer or so.

    Did not think I would see David Starsky today, but of course I'm glad I did.

    On to the contest:

    Entry 1, 1993: Fishing hat, leather necklace, tie dye. I wore this hat everywhere; I have no idea how women ever talked to me.

    [​IMG]

    2012: Pindot shirt and River Chinos at a dance recital.

    [​IMG]

    Entry 2, circa 2003: Eddie Bauer on an, ahem, portlier gentleman.

    [​IMG]

    2012: Shawl Cardigan from last year with gingham & moleskin.

    [​IMG]

    Entry 3, circa 2007: This is just embarrassing. Those are jorts.

    [​IMG]

    Tonight: Camel Hair & Japanese Woodblock. I am now reconsidering the pocket square.

    Congrats on your weight lost (and keeping it off) - that can be a hard thing. Don't look too bad sartorially either :)


    I was under the impression that final entries are this coming friday, and that original intention was to keep photos in the early 2000's range (not that I don't enjoy seeing these early 90's pics, just might be a bit far removed), or at around 16 years old minimum.

    Did some more digging and found another old pic, so here's my entry #2 in the contest:

    BEFORE - the sad thing is this pic wasn't taken all that long ago (I think this is from 2007) and I totally thought I was such a baller (this was my only suit at the time):

    suit bought from Boscov's
    shirt and tie (I think) are Charles Tyrwhitt - check out the striped suit, striped shirt, and striped tie combo!
    shoes are some sweet square toed Kenneth Coles

    [​IMG]

    AFTER - pic taken probably 5 years after the before pic

    Epaulet Rudy Cramerton Cloth
    Epaulet Brown CXL belt
    Alden Indy 403

    I guess I may have one right now on the computer...from my honey moon in 2006, and how my sense of warm weather style changed:

    Thanks Mike and Adele, the Hardie Cardigan arrived today! Sizing down one was great adivce - this fits pretty much perfectly. I love the thick rugged texture, and the shawl is amazing, but the best bit is the nice thick buttons :). Yay for Epaulet.

    Should I follow the care instructions on your website, or on the card that came with the garment?

    Damn. This guy's got my vote so far. The after in that third set of pics is absolute fire. Mind if I get the deets on your sunglasses? Not the ones in your before pic lol, the other ones.

    I'm kinda tempted to add cuffs on the new linen Walt but I think it may look weird since its lightweight :/
