    I will make an outfit with 5 parts from SF affiliat vendors tomorrow or the day after tomorrow:

    Luxire shirt
    Exquisit Trimmings tie
    Shibumi PS
    Avi Rossini Socks from Malford of London
    Shoepassion shoes

    Unfortunately my LuxeSwap Fresco sports coat from Oxxford clothes will not count, because I bought it from the ebay platform

    The disqualification of LS products saddens me.

    Not all LS products. And yeah, it wasn't an easy call, but I felt that there was very little difference between LS and B&S except scale and organization. I also wanted the products to represent the tastes/aesthetics of the various Family Members (even with resellers, they put a great deal of themselves into choosing what they carry).

    Aw hell, someone convince me otherwise.


    --as far as my fit, I'm looking at either 5 or 6.

    Rule changes:

    - All LS purchases allowed (Spoo, I got a PM from a supporter of yours with only this link included: )
    - Bonus for extra items dropped from two votes to one for the sake of parity

    Also, thoughts on:

    - running this an extra week (since this is still the tail end of the holidays and we might not get as many fits as the SF Family deserves)
    - allowing an extra submission from people should they choose to do so

    It's a big boost for those of us capable of putting together fits with 5-6 and even 7 items, but really puts at a disadvantage those who've got 2 or 3. In the end, the contest should be won mostly through excellent fits and not through koppage.

    Jury is still out on the socks. And the underwear.

    Thoughts on extending the contest and allowing multiple entries?

    I hear that, but I want 2 each.

    The socks better damn count.

    Yes to extending.

    Not loving the multiple entry option.

    Too late, but I would have required that pants, SC or suit have to be from an AV as item #1 and item #2 or more can be anything else.

    Also, how would multiple entries work?

    People can submit 2 entires and each entry has a slot in the ballot, or each poster may post 1 or 2 fits and gets one slot and voters vote on the totality of their fits? Either way I don't see that as an improvement over 1 fit per entrant.

    One fit it is. Contest extended a week. Stitchy, I'm putting you in charge of PR.
