1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Only true glen plaid I have...sea foam green suit. More of a spring/Summer suit but c'est la vie.

    My major concern is the PS...it's darker navy then the tie but maybe I shouldn't have gone with a navy PS in the first place.

    Still trying to figure out a way to get better pics.

    1. so far 6 of the entries have been black/white/gray with a light blue overcheck. i expected a high percentage of those because they are lovely.


    2. @Claghorn, here is my final decision regarding GP/PoW pants as it pertains to the point calculation.


    • if clags is 3 votes or more short of winning, GP/PoW pants will earn 2 extra points
    • if clags is 2 votes short of winning, GP/PoW pants will earn 1 extra point
    • if clags is 1 vote short of winning, GP/PoW pants will be treated the same as GP/PoW suits and SCs, no extra points
    • if clags is tied for the win, GP/PoW pants will have a 1 point deduction.
    • if clags has the most votes, there will be a deduction for GP/PoW pants, equal to 1 + the amount of votes between him and the second place winner


    is fair?

    :devil:

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that such requirements are going to prove unnecessary. No disrespect to Clags, he has won a bunch of challenges, but I just don't see any PoW odd pants outfit rivaling the incredible suit action on this thread. Some heavy hitters really brought their biggest guns to this party.

    Wow, some killer looks today.

    I agree with SeaJen, tough to compete with the full POW suit for this challenge. Unless you are of the mind that it is harder to pull off the odd POW jacket [​IMG].

    It's Pingson and tchoy for me again. Stitchy and Butler close behind.

    Doc, you may have bored yourself today, but it looks quite nice to my eye.

    Stitchy: CAN HAZ 1 VOTE?

    Whoops, forgot about Cleav. That's also quite sharp. And NOBD for his casual entry. Lots of good stuff this week.

    Take yourself out of it, Stitchy. You know it's the right thing to do. Do it for Randolph Scott.
