    does that mean my gomminos don't qualify for your 'no effs given' threak?! :'( And why are you not considering Pingson? He essentially wears the same as I but a lot more tasteful?


    @NOBD, I had my heart on BVB but my money was on bavaria... at least a German team one the champions league and it was a thrilling match.

    It's a"Friday Challenge", not "anything suitable in your personal archive that happens to have been a nice picture" challenge. And where are your wrinkles, you immaculate charlatan, you! [​IMG]

    If TTO wins it will be my own undoing because I voted for him and I never vote for myself.

    Nobody commented on my two pocket squares. Does this mean it wasn't awful? (not something I plan on doing again, regardless)

    It's not readily apparent that there are two. But that's silly.

    Sprezz doesn't come naturally to me...I have no sprezzy items in my wardrobe. I thought we were supposed to be wrinkly and sprezzy. But apparently we just needed to be wrinkly.

    Pocket squares are silly. Two pocket squares are silly to the point of ridiculous.

    Someone please give me the Cruijff number in stead of 13... Even though the pic was a bit old and I'm not wrinkled in it yet. :)

    The jacket (partly) and the tie and the shirt are linen!

    For the record, I voted for TTO and Holdfast. Those two took it a step beyond everyone else IMO.

    This weeks Friday Challenge was one of the most popular in the series with 17 contenders from around the globe with an electorate of 92 plebeians who cast an average of 2.07 votes.

    The ballots are in and it is a clear unanimous decision.

    TTO wins by the vast amount of 1 vote in this landslide victory. At no point was there ever any doubt that our Nigerian prince wouldn't pose any competition on the titlist.

    This weeks pyrrhic victory goes to TTO.

    Not only does he get to decide this weeks theme, no he is also granted all the administrative obligations and organisational responsibilities entailed with the title. May he faithfully perform these duties imposed on him by his linen jacket. Enjoy!

    I'm out and I hope I will never win this thing again.
