    An Acute Style for a very difficult color combination done well and for exceptionally well-fitting trousers. His best so far, IMO.

    I'm sorry but I really didn't want to look at quite a few of those fits more than once and some of them I wish I hadn't seen at all. Take away some of the safe options and some people seem to completely lose any sense of aesthetics... which may have been the point of the challenge. (And I'm sorry I missed it - if it had been last Friday, it would have been a different story, but these last few days I've been ill...).

    AS, HoldFast, Stitch, and Kulata got my votes this go round. I usually only allow myself two votes per challenge, but there was so much win going on this time.

    Had that been a suit Kulata was wearing, I wouldn't have even bothered with a poll.

    I have to say, I disagree with this completely. All told, this wasn't anywhere near a disaster. There were some I didn't like, but no more than any other challenge.

    Kulata's (Belvest?) jacket indeed deserves a shout-out. Shame I missed when one of those was up for sale here.

    Several very solid fits. AAS and Kulata for me.

    This was pretty difficult, but my votes go to Claghorn and In Stitches. I think Kulata and AAS both look great, but their ties look like predominantly navy and burgundy backgrounds respectively, which seemed too safe to me. Mind you, I have to admit that to my senses, blue/white striped shirts and solid/predominantly brown ties seem like staple items, so it was just based on the fact that Claghorn specified that they were allowed. I also think that with a different tie and shoes, Betelgeuse would have been my top vote. I also really like NOBD's outfit, but it felt too contextually removed from all of the others to make the comparison.
