    Ha! There needs to be some demarcation by the judges as to what constitutes a scarf and what constitutes a picnic blanket or throw rug masquerading as a scarf,

    yup

    If it looks good it looks good. How you tie it (or not) doesn't matter

    This will be wholly decided by voter turnout. I think it's clear that SW&D has the more efficient GOTV machine.

    It'll be cold enough these next few days for a scarf to make sense. Now I just need to dig my scarfs out...

    My prediction, SWD wins this one. It continues to name SWD type challenges and continues to win. As CM members participate, their tastes are slowly changed. It culminates with upr_crust wearing dropcrotch suit pants to work, stitchy wearing skinny jeans, and Holdfast wearing some Yohji.

    Though actually, I think HF can pull off Yohji.

    That being said, at some point the challenges should return to CM territory. Scarves simply don't look as awesome with a jacket and tie (probably the defining clothing of CM). Neither do turtlenecks. At the same time, I find myself trying to figure out how to incorporate a scarf into a jacket and tie context, capturing the artistry of SWD while also following the rules of CM. This is hard. A good challenge in the sense that it's forcing me to think.

    Big fan of scarves during the cold, this old fit remains my favorite incorporation. Still consistently stunned by how incredible the scarf looks from a distance.

    Clags, I kind of agree, but I do not 100% agree. Nice top coat + scarf, over a suit and tie, done right its a killer MC look. If someone here can really do it proper, they could win it.

    You need someone with all the right goods to make it happen. I am short a scarf, dont have anything top shelf.

    Even then, I don't think so. Not because it wouldn't be the best look, but simply because of voter bias. Not that they're going to think "I'm from SWD, this guy is from SWD, screw those MC suits pretending to be James Bond" but because they have SWD tastes so they'll vote for SWD looks.

    They participate/care a lot more. It speaks well of them and speaks ill of us.

    Not sold. The SWD guys know a great fit when they see one, and I am confident they would place votes for a killer MC scarf fit if one was posted.

    As to their participation vs MCs, as related to thumbs and votes, I agree, but as related to daily participation, its a level playing field of participation and caring in my opinion.

    gdl, only fits from the past week, as per norm? Otherwise, it feels a bit less like a weekly contest.

    I think one of the things I find appealing about scarves in a SWD context is that it can inject quite a bit of steez into a look. It's a bit more tricky to do the same (but hopefully not impossible) with a CM look.
