    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for all the support guys. This was a fun challenge.

    Now I want to officially DEMAND that the scooter photos be disqualified! They have nothing whatsoever to do with clothing and....and...and....um....neither Crusty or I have kids so it's just not fair!



    Oh, come on now! Are you going to make me tell everyone that you and your fiancé were kindest, sweetest, and most charming people I met at Pitti? Are you???

    You do realize whose challenge this is, right? Not a chance. Seriously, the scooters have a story and people can disregard them for all I care. We rocked it...pose synchronization, similar backgrounds and most importantly, damn near identical fits. You guys have an awesome entry, I don't want to hear your bitching.

    You mean you didn't buy that scooter especially for the challenge?

    Braddock and I: both lighter than navy blue suits, blue/white striped shirts, brown ties (shantung for me, grenadine for him), the same white/orange linen square, brown oxfords.

    First, the classic Pitti Pose[​IMG], where you casually expose your balls while playing Candy Crush (we didn't have any phones, doesn't matter, it's the balls that count):

    [​IMG]

    Then, what we call the "Kamoshita":

    And finally, detail shots:

    Why didn't we think of doing a signature pose? Or maybe you mentioned it L2BR? I thought it enough of a hassle to just find similar items to wear.

    You better believe I know who's challenge this is! A couple of little girls!!! And that's why I'm calling shenanigans!!! You've even got a mod on your team. He can just make the competition disappear......

    You guys rocked it....."ok"......



    See, your problem was you just posted too soon after us. Everyone else saw how much positive feedback we received when I copied Crusty's signature poses that they just copied us. That's how it went I'm telling you! We should get extra points for being the trend setters!!!

    Yea, I mentioned in passing potentially taking pics in a similar area and posing similarly, but didn't go into it too much.

    Quote: luv2breformed We spent so much time trying to coordinate, by the time we decided on a fit it was everything just to get them out on Friday. Our major time zone difference didn't help. You go to bed at like 1 PM!!! [​IMG]

    As luck would have it, Mr. Claymore and I (and my partner) had brunch together today, and let me echo EFV's comment that Mr. Claymore is a delightful guy, and a most helpful (if dangerous) shopping companion - I am up one RLPL suit due to his expert assistance (or was that enabling? Oh, well, never mind . . .). :D

    No sir, brunch was eaten on the island of Manhattan, thank you, and credit card seppuku was committed at 72nd and Madison.

    Really guys, simmer down. Enough with all the compliments. Where do you think all this flattery is going to get you any way? Thank you though. It was a fun afternoon.


    That's all you've got to say??? For a ninja editing, girly acting, kiddy shooter riding, mod.... I thought you would have had more of a comeback! We'll just have to duke it out in the poll buddy!

    Top to bottom quality-wise this might be the best batch of FC entries I've seen. Not a dud in the bunch, I could easily have voted for everyone. Great job, dudes!
