    Socks should count for bonus. I will be rocking SF family for all but my yarmulke. And thats only because no vendor here sells them.

    I'll take this under consideration. I've some socks from Unipair I could use.

    But basically I figured each additional item was an additional restriction on the options you had in creating your fit, hence the bonus. Socks (or underwear) don't really restrict anything else in the outfit. But I might just think that because I don't frequent the Rock Your Socks thread.

    Carl (Shirtmaven) posts on here. Do CEGO shirts count as an item for this challenge?

    Yes. Carl posts regularly. That goes with "Active members with their own brands."

    What's probably more controversial are things like Ramalhoni shoes, which made an early start here and managed to get off the ground because of help and orders from SF. However, Miguel does not post here regularly (though he has from time to time). Regardless, I may participate and if so I will be wearing my pebble grain Havelocks.

    Clags, socks should count because they're an important part of an outfit. Why is that? Because I have seen enough critiques on socks here to believe that they do count as part of the fit lol. Also, they should count just because they should.

    When you made your first post about this challenge yesterday I was wearing items from three different SF vendors, but that is not enough for me. So I will put together a new fit special for this challenge. Also because I love you.

    I love you too. And I'll meditate on the socks. Also, do you have affiliate vendor underwear?

    Is there a list of AVs somewhere? I'm not sure I have anything beyond Luxire. Might something from one of the others that I'm forgetting though.

    Count me in. I need to find a jacket from a AV that can ship overnight or else it will be the only non-SF piece.

    What is seen cannot be unseen. Seriously. The spoilered picture involves bulge.

    HF, I'm surprised. I hope this contest serves as motivation to remedy this hole in your wardrobe. Though please don't fill said hole with above bulge.

    It's not that surprising though. Most of the makers I own, I knew them first as B&M shops. And I've slowed my rate of purchases down massively from some years ago, as I pretty much have what I want already. These days, I only replace things every now and then when I fancy a change, or need to because of wear & tear. And naturally, I'm more likely to buy from somewhere I've already shopped rather than try somewhere new. Where I have bought online, it's frequently been down to a SF thread mentioning the shop, just happens they're not affiliates. For example, I learnt about Herring Shoes and Suitsupply here and have ordered online from both. Luxire have been a great AV for me though, filling a niche I wouldn't have been able to easily otherwise and certainly not at their prices.
