    Many great things, the concept was pretty inspiring.
    Spring is back in Paris, I'm also wearing some Edwin blue jeans and some John Lobb Loafers, which can't be seen on the pictures

    Looks like most, including myself, agree with you. Looks of other good entries too though.

    Although I have never mentioned who I have voted for in any of these challenges, I have noticed that I often vote for those who have actually worn whatever they are wearing someplace in the world that exists outside of their houses.

    I liked Murl's & Gerry's most. I really liked mcfox's as well, but I guess I ended up voting for stuff I could see myself wearing.

    There has been unexpected fallout from this challenge, as I posted pics from Friday on AAAC, in the wake of which there have been clashing opinions as to the wearing of jeans with a sports jacket - some are opposed, while others felt that my jeans (new - their first wearing), were not "jeans-y" enough (not tight enough, or too uniformly dyed). Some egos have been slightly bruised in the process, though hardly mine - I am taking this all in with an attitude of ironic bemusement.
