    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.

    Another excellent example of "less-is-more" attire. Nothing beats clean lines, subtle color combinations, and taste. I like the fact that there is just a hint of a pocket square.

    Though the cut of his clothes are not always my cuppa I think the pattern matching here is outstanding, so my vote goes to DonC.

    I've been away so I missed all this. All those you would expect to be good were reliably good: Pingson, timotune, EFV, TTO, Cleav, Stitchy... Well, all of you did just fine. But there was only one person in this for me, and I only cast one vote, and it wasn't because of the tie, it was because of the combination, and because he has made by far the hugest improvements in the last few months:

    Stand up, Anden.

    I like how Anden did it with a non conventional (not navy, dark blue or grey) jacket. Would like to see the bottom half - grey flannels?

    I spread a few votes, like 15 :lol:, but it's because there were great entries. My fav: Anden. The combo is different and well executed.

    Looks like the early fave is Anden!!!!

    I think that if Clags was wearing a more GREEN tie that he would be trending better.

    Anden's fit was great, but only in my top 3. Gumball's was my fave (perhaps he's losing votes for the slightly matchy square, or just because he's not well-known to voters), and I thought sugarbutch stepped up to the plate with a great set of colours for second. Mind you, there were quite a few good fits and I had to cast a lot of votes. It seems the Friday Challenges have had stronger fields of late. Or maybe the themes are more in the centre of SF's preferred zone, thus lending themselves to a better average entry. Whatever, it's a nice trend.

    Spread lot of votes but missed Gumball. It's a great look matchy or not, it's all about visual appeal to me.

    I an quite offended that I wasn't included in the votes. Did my fit not meet the requirements

    Maybe if you had patched the brown-hued bills into a passable sport coat, perhaps with 3-roll-2 lapels and patch pockets, and then shredded some of those green bills, made a yarn from the shreds and knit a tie from it.

    I remind you that cranky children get only carrot sticks for their afternoon snack - no rugelach or hamantaschen for you, mister. :satisfied:
