    I suppose this qualifies... It's a beautiful 30C and sunny here, but I guess if I was still living in London, at this time of year I'd be wearing something like this (from when it was cold enough to wear tweed here):

    Lots of good entries. Went with AAS in the end. Spoo, Ac, Shen, Tom Miler, Gus, Sycsyc made it a tough call.

    I am slightly disappointed with the non-herringbone-patterned floor in these pictures.

    A great challenge, and all praise to Mr Knightley for putting it together.

    Whoever wins might want to consider running a two-week challenge, owing to the current and upcoming holidays which tend to cut back traffic here quite a bit since people have so many other obligations.

    There’s certainly precedent for that. In fact, we did it last year this time for exactly those reasons:

    Anyway, just a thought.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    Thanks for the votes everyone. Congrats, Tom. Your fit was my favorite of the bunch. Well deserved.
