Well, Spoo has declared "No Tie For You!!!"

So, it comes down to TTO v. MBreinin for the crown of best cheapskate, as we both garnered 50 votes each.

One day poll. Non-multiple choice. Voters visible.


TTO:

Suit- New with tags 1/2 price from £300, and then for some reason another %50 was taken off at the online checkout ?? so £75 for half canvas British fabric DB!
Shirt- thrifted new with tags, £ 6
Tie- Panta $99 - £70ish
shoes- new, boxed, with shoe bags, spare laces, shoe horn and crappy plastic trees- reduced to £60, buy one get one free!
pocket square- set of two linen handkerchiefs, £8
so all in about £185





MBreinin:

Suit: Polo USA, virtually identical to Chester Barrie Purple Label...$125.00 on E-Bay
Shirt: Tommy Hilfiger Ithaca...$29.99 at TJ Maxx
Tie: Barba 7 Fold...$1.50 at local Goodwill
Square: Linen...$12.99 at Steinmart
Shoes: Vintage Wright Cordwainers....$50.00 on E-Bay.

Total: $219.48.

What's this? I can only vote ONCE?
An outrage!

Wow still staying close.

I didn't know who to pick so I ended up choosing TTO because I don't really care for the color of MBrenin's suit. (looks brownish to me) Amazing fit though!

Mike it is for me as well. Love the fabric on the suit, while the double-breasted on TTO doesn't really do it for me.

Love TTO's suit, but the button stance is just too high for me. Had to go with mike.

Sorry TTO - Changed my vote, MBreinin gets it on fit alone (longer jackets look much better on you I think).
