    Thanks, T! I didn't note the change from "compulsory mismatch" to "no mismatch"! Just trying to do what the Butler ordered. [​IMG]

    There have been some disqualifications, sorry, there is an option to chuck a sympathy vote to those who fell under my knife!
    Mimo, the suits a lovely linen/mohair blend, one of the most comfortable things I have for the heat.

    Yeah, the lightness really comes across in the pic actually. Maybe darker summer-weight suits are an under-used wonder. I need to look into some myself, as my lighter suits are a touch casual. I take it your suit's bespoke? It's an extraordinary fit and finish; love it.

    Conveniently posted after the poll is up so as to avoid winning!
    Very nice Butler!

    Butler, I just noticed you & Kaplan are at the same venue, Friday Challenge meet-ups, maybe we should have a special challenge where we try to get as many well dressed folks together in each city...the international shoe circle challenge!?

    That's incredible, Butler!


    They were my top two as well, although I also blessed SB and Timo with my votes. Also because they didn't get any mimo-love before. Whereas I left out TTO just for a change...not that he isn't always deserving...

    (Can't believe I'm losing out to the disqualified sympathy vote after wearing a three-piece on my day off - and it's 100 degrees and 75% humidity. You guys are tough.)

    Orge and Southern for me. A vote would have gone to Butler as well if his made it in on time. Solid work gentlemen.

    Org and TTO....though I saw Butler AFTER I voted.

    SouthernStyle needs socks. It isn't cute anymore. Someone needs to take that kid out back to the woodshed!
