    You sir, are not a fool. But you are sorely mistaken.

    According to Derk, his pole is no joke, but perhaps you've seen it, and know it only to worthy of humor ????

    EFV, Thin White Duke & Sprezziamo got my votes. [​IMG]

    Thin White Duke probably my favourite of the three.

    I agree there too - Thin White Duke's entry was lovely and it makes me think he should overly imitate his Dad more often - I would say that this worked much better for him than almost anything else I've seen him wearing.

    My third vote was for Spezziamo, even though I dislike Gianni Agnelli...

    TWD doesn't get a lot of love because of his love of three button jackets, I think. During the purple tie challenge, I deliberately posted a close up of his chest, where it wasn't apparent he was wearing a three button, and spoilered the rest. He garnered quite a few votes that challenge.

    He was a pretty nasty piece of work. So was the Duke of Windsor. Life is not just about clothes...

    I'm wondering wether people ought to vote for the best emulation(which I believe would be Pingson imo - honestly who can tell them apart if you pixelate both faces?), the best inspired look which I think would be EFV or TWD(god your father has some Jon Hamm'ish qualities to his looks) - meaning the look that has the best inspirational aspect while still being a distinctively different or something completely different.

    Either way, lots of beautiful entries!

    I see. I thought you were saying you did not think he was a well-dressed dude. That was where I was confused. I know nothing about him as a man.

    I apparently screwed up as the poll was supposed to close at midnight yesterday, but baring a late surge by one of the other contestants, I think we can declare EFV as this weeks winner. Congrats and good luck with doing up with next weeks topic for the contest. :slayer:

    Just out of curiosity, what are you referring to?

    Because the only negative things about him coming to my mind are the well-know sex affairs and the never-confirmed rumors about using cocaine, but those bad habits are probably shared by 99% of the businessmen and entrapeneurs in the world.
