    So far, my ranking:

    JPHardy
    Tira
    Clags/me (tie)
    Stitchy (I would have liked a different tie, I think)

    JPH has put some distance between himself and Tira, and likewise between Tira and the rest of us.

    Tira, you still planning to drop some science?

    I hope T posts some new pics, otherwise I guess I'll have to use his green shirt fit in the poll because the other one is controversial...

    lets say that you wanted a less perfect tie pairing, what would you have done? my second choice was green grenadine grossa.

    I have revised my opinion of Stitchy's tie. I think it successfully references the color of his shoes, tying the top and bottom halves together.

    I have spoken.

    This is what the English calls good fun!

    Very proper bespoke Steven Hitchcock velvet/grosgrain Dinner coat/bow, Budd collar, Turnbull & Asser PS - and "fun" Budd evening shirt made up of odd ends and pieces with proper Marcella front/cuffs!

    A good thing you are not supposed to take off the coat - only your wife and/or mistress will ever know :hide: :bigstar:

    This is pretty dope, TWD. Every color is echoed twice. Shirt/socks, shoes/jacket, pants/square. Well done.

    Surely he's disqualified for having major colours of blue and white?

    (still a very interesting covert operation!)

    You are correct. I was so flabbergasted that I lost my bearings for a moment. Nice try, Butler! :)
