    I was told there was a challenge. Does anyone know who started these weekly challenges in the first place, anyway?

    Also: Some people have swelled edges. Spoo's edges are swole. :)

    This is a very heavy large scale herringbone cashmere tweed I had made by NSM along with one of their bespoke end-on-end shirts and a bespoke EG C tie. I wear it on cold days without an overcoat. Its as cozy as a blanket.

    @jrd617 now's the time for that heavyweight NSM herringbone tweed! A herringbone challenge in the dead of winter--what more could one ask for?

    I think you have to wear the clothes to enter the contest, though.

    Foxtooth, employing the seamless for a challenge is a bit unseemly, no? People will get ideas.
