    To the two lost souls who must have accidentally hit the wrong button and voted for me: thanks a ton, guys [​IMG][​IMG]

    I voted for @Anden and @Cleav - both fits were stellar.

    Thank you kindly, @Gerry Nelson and @Spandexter. I live for my fans.

    @Coxsackie, I (lightheartedly) ribbed you for implying a false dichotomy:



    There were several entries in which the cardigan was well integrated with the rest of the fit's components, very few of the others fell into the "quirky flash of colour" category, and regardless the two are not mutually exclusive.

    The dichotomy is not false, due to my employment of the modifying conjunction "just". However, it does beg the question.

    Your fit was also good.

    I'm happy to see that people are taking advantage of the multiple-choice voting to give some love to Ac's cat.

    I cast a single vote and it was for the cat. In terms of Cardi-can and Cardi-cant, I am firmly in the Cardi-don't camp.

    I had to got that route as well. A lot of good entrants, as people can really pull off the look. Just not something I ever anticipate wearing so I gave my vote to the cat.

    Congratulations, Anden, and have you any inspirations for the next challenge, in this, a very transitional season (in NYC, it seems to be transitioning back to winter . . .)

    Thank you all. I am humbled by all votes.

    For this week - something that most can enter with and I hope for many contestants.

    So. The theme will be Herringbone.

    All you need is a tie, jacket, trousers or a full suit in a herringbone pattern.

    Will post the challenge later. Or tomorrow.
