    This Valentine's Day, wear your heart on your spalla.

    Bring out your FU jackets.

    Here are the rules for the challenge:
    • shirt and tie are a must, (don't forget to put on some form of trousers);
    • the jacket can be an odd jacket or, if feeling slightly ballsy, as a full FU suit ensemble (this is not compulsory, of course)

    Added conditions:
    • fit must be from the challenge week (no archived fits);
    • multi-voting will be allowed;
    • don't tell your friends that you put up a fitpic for a Friday Challenge, especially if they're Australian.

    Deadline for submission of pics is Sunday Feb 16, 09.00 CET (=UTC+1).

    Voting ends 48 hours after the deadline for submissions.

    Good luck and good health, gents.

    No Clue about FU? Here are some clues - heed at your own risk.

    Need more inspiration? Just google "pitti uomo"​



    Note: pinstripes aren't FU enough - unless yours is Hosni Mubrarak-level pinstripe.

    Do you measure lapels horizontally, or along the seam of the gorge.

    I don't know if my jacket has 4.5" or 5" lapels.

    Or what pants I am going to wear with this atrocity.

    Not sure if this is true but a rep from Dormeuil told me the cloth for that Mubarak suit (Which they made) costs $10k a yd.

    Not sure which of these two sources are more reliable, but that sounds about half right. Appears to be H&S, not Dormeuil.

    John Serafino on Pitt St offers the personal pinstripe. Only robber barons and military strongmen need apply.

    Think how dope that would look with "sugarbutch" as the stripe. I may have to start a clothing line to justify doing it. You'll help me out, Tira?

    I have seen that pinstripe with name here in Mexico but from Scabal. Price is stupidly high when you put it in pesos.

    As for the challenge, I might be in, I wore the outfit that would have qualified today and didn't took a pic. :(

    Price is stupidly high in any currency, I'd reckon.

    I think what you mean is "any price is stupidly high when you put it in pesos".
