    You know, for some reason, he slipped through the cracks. It is a good fit for sure. I still say Clags ran away with this one, but Kulata is the dark horse for sure. It's a strong fit.

    I liked Sharply Tailored quite a bit; the biggest issue with his, accepting that it is brown, is that the suit is way too citified to work with the idea behind the challenge. TTO and Kulata also posted great looks, and the kid was a fantastic addition to the poll. Kulata may have been hamstrung with the tie knot, which is probably a bit sloppy for the tastes of some (though perhaps fit the challenge well)

    Agree. Perhaps a better, "browner" picture would have helped him.

    VictorElfo is very nice IMO as well. Got a vote from me.

    probs bc no one knows who he is and maybe for lack of full fot pic.

    anyways, if anyone didnt vote for him because of the tie knot, they deserve to be slapped about the face with a horses private parts.

    Thanks, Claghorn. I agree with what you're saying, given that the challenge has the word "Farmer" in it. I like some of the brown patterned jackets on display here (and I think Betelgeuse was wearing a really nice one in a previous challenge), but I wouldn't really get enough use out of one to justify buying one. :-(

    I voted for the boy (Porcelain Monkey, Jr.) because a sonic screwdriver is the ultimate accessory (and he seems to have two of them, one in his hand and one for show in the breast pocket). I'm sure it can be useful in a farm setting too. (Somehow. Not sure exactly how, but how couldn't it be?) And he hasn't matched it too closely to the bow tie (which, by the way, is very cool); this shows a mature degree of judgement.

    Sorry, Clags. Bit of a rush job between domestic duties, then I was off to kiddo birthday parties in the afternoon and didn't pick up the request.

    Not that it matter much now, but I wasn't added to the poll.

    You can't add folks to the poll after voting started. I made that mistake once as well. It's tough to keep track of people; second time I ran this, I made sure I kept a handwritten list while compiling the entrants.

    Ah, I see. Oh well. It's understandable since there was a lot of people participating. Better luck next week I guess!

    If I win, I'll make you the first entrant.

    CM: wow, I'm really sorry!! I double checked myself, too. It is intimidating and confusing for a first timer, and I was afraid I would make a mistake. It now seems I did.
    Again, sincerest apologies.

    This is what is scary about running these things. What if you choose something which no one participates in? At some point, I'd really want to do Friday Challenge: Unstapled, where participants have to post a fit without any staples (solid blue or white shirt, white shirt with blue stripes, solid gray or navy suit/blazer, white/cream pocket square, brown or black captoes, navy or burgundy tie). I think that would be a great challenge, but perhaps too difficult for many wardrobes to accommodate.
