    I think extremely highly of you, but this is the dumbest idea you have ever had.

    Thank you and all, but I'm sure I've had dumber ideas. Just ask my wife. Honestly though, I think the results would be really interesting. My wife has never picked out an outfit for me before (other than this blog thing). I'm scared and curious as to what she would come up with in a sport coat, tie setting.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Is that what your wife would have you wear for the challenge? I imagine she would know best.

    Ah, the girl I used to date 2 years ago did that for me once, for a magazine.

    Still have the clothes, but no longer have a better half.

    As much as I am not a fan of the have your significant other dress you challenge, I suspect that the criteria of having a significant other may be less restrictive than some of the things that have been required to participate in at least a few of these challenges. If we want to make it more inclusive, we could always allow those without a significant other to let a close female friend choose their outfit. I'm terrified to see the results of it either way...

    Just the thought of the gifts I've gotten over the years from girls, or the things they point out in stores.

    In my (by no means expansive) experience, they know what looks good, but not how to make it.

    Being as how I'm single now I would gladly watch and vote.

    Maybe a modified version would be wear something given to you as a gift.

    Interesting that you didn't pose the same question to me, but, then again, "naked" for you could be simply without your yarmulke.

    Don't worry Stitchy, I love you best when you're properly clothed, and your head is covered in the presence of G-d.

    How about let a fellow SFer decide your fit? We all to each other more than we do our spouses.

    Oh wait maybe not all of us.

    I'd ask for the story behind the pic, but fear I could only be disappointed.

    Why do you think there’s a story?

    This is just an ordinary morning for Roycru, I would imagine …

    Cheers,
