Good stuff so far, here's mine from yesterday's WAYWRN:
i fear my FU is not as FU as the fits going up. damn guys, well done.
Great combo! Details on tie?
I'm having trouble seeing any of the current submissions as "FU" in the sense of “loud,” which was how it was defined at the close of the last challenge when I inquired. They're all quite beautiful, but they don't strike me as "loud" (I intend that as a compliment, by the way). I guess in this context "loud" means "strongly patterned," not necessarily "brightly patterned"? I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to grasp the intended meaning of the term in the present context.
Perhaps this is one of those generation gap things ...
No, Ac I agree with you. This was the reason I thought I couldn't play in the winter. I have a couple FU madras jackets, but they are for summer. Stiches comment really threw me for a loop. If he thought these were pretty FU, then perhaps I have much too high a standard. I may be able to play after all.
Cotton Dockers has my vote for now. His fit would be superb in any context, but the jacket is especially memorable.
To me, "FU" means what it says: "I'm going to rock this jacket and I don't care whether you like it or not". Imagine a President delivering a State of the Union address in that jacket. Or a CEO delivering his annual report to the Board.
Y'all feelin' me?
This is from Monday, but I have something planned for tomorrow too depending on the weather.
to me, anything that is loud is FU. just the way i see it.
Can't participate but want to be part of the fun.
My best attempt:
fit wise, that might be one of your best ever. everything is clean and the lines are nice and fit your body right.
And I was like
That helps. Thanks.
Thanks! It is a vintage grenadine from "Carroll & Co." , a tradly mens store in Los Angeles.
I see your point, especially compared to most of the options posted by Nabilmust, but I think we sometimes forget what the reaction to a jacket would be on SF, as opposed to in the "real world" of solid blue and grey suits. SF is filled with colorful items, both tasteful and not, that do not elicit a reaction deserving of an FU, but I think any of the fits posted so far would elicit a double take from co-workers, friends, significant others, etc. in our day-to-day lives.
