    i think thats ideal, but there is no way to prove that really. even an old fit, if it has never been posted before, there is really no way to know. its a bit of an honor system.

    But I think a lot of people, if it is said explicitly, would abide by that honor system. I always thought it was assumed. As I've mentioned several times, I'll just go downstairs to the bar in my building for a drink to qualify. I wouldn't post a fit that wasn't worn out of the house. That just seems....weird.

    (Though I guess I get it if a poster wants to see if something works before a big event)

    i will to admit to taking a tie off on occasion, after posting a fit in WAYWRN, if the heat was too much to bear.

    There's no way to prove any of it really. Here's a thought: I own two PS's and have only worn one, once. But you've seen them in a few pictures. I just like to fuck with them. If you see it in a picture, and it's not a white PS, chances are - I probably took it out. SC's are rare enough in Phoenix. A silk puffed PS might get me shot.
    Right, the honor system, I assume as well. There's no point in really questioning if anyone is lying. It's like the NPC. It's not for your benefit, it's for theirs. It's the name of the game. If they want to act like they play by the rules and cheat, then fine - but the rest of us will play fairly.

    I think we need to, as a group, set standards. First level rules could follow:
    • Needs to be worn out of the house
    • Needs to be a fit from that week
    • Needs to qualify as Men's Classic, either casual or conservative
    • Need to have pictures of the fit , collar to cuffs - shoes dependent on secondary rules

    Then Second level rules follow what the poster changes weekly.
    • Needs to be not blue, pink or white based

    Only way to make the entire thing fair.

    Tira's shirt still reads as pink to me, even in the Uniqlo picture. Not my challenge, of course, but that's my opinion.

    After closer review of some of the challenges and fits , I think you should remove this clause:


    1. Needs to be worn out of the house

    Think about the children.

    Ok,

    • Needs to be worn out of the house
    • Needs to be a fit from that week
    • Needs to qualify as Men's Classic, either casual or conservative
    • Need to have pictures of the fit , collar to cuffs - shoes dependent on secondary rules
    • Stay away from children

    shugz, it does look more reddish to me in the uniqlo pic. I was having a hard time deciding whether to accept it or not just to have some variety instead of all green. but it might be unfair to include that pic in the poll and not Holdfast's... what a mess. T, think you have time to post something different? Or we could use your grey suit pic. This challenge is proving hard to judge...
