    Tough one. I like Slewfoot & TTO's renditions.

    Genuinely difficult to choose between Slewfoot and SpooPoker.

    In contrast, is MBreinin's golden jacket seems to be a terrible fit.
    It is too long by current SF standards,
    and is very unflattering to his figure. A pear or bell shape is suggested.
    It just looks completely wrong, for reasons I can't describe.

    I don't get the fascination with Parker's jacket.
    Looks like a $5 Salvation Army jacket.
    It looks like he's a teacher or car salesman on a 1972 Brady Bunch episode.
    Does anyone actually dress like that?


    NODB has a great casual look.
    Spoo steps it up a notch, with a perfectly fitting jacket.
    Slewfoot looks "vintage". Like he should be in a Jane Austen movie!

    Thanks guys! Glad you liked the suit. Some great looks here that really show the versatility of corduroy.

    I've even been considering getting a tan/khaki colored corduroy suit with patch pockets one of these days.

    I'd buy a car from Parker any day. Great look. My vote goes to TTO because he has more square feet of corduroy.

    I admit this comment initially gave me some pause. If it had been posted by someone who had demonstrated, through his own posts, even a rudimentary grasp of the concepts of personal style and fit, I would still be concerned. Since it was posted by someone who has demonstrated the exact opposite, I am nonplussed.

    Alan and Slewfoot both put together excellent looks, but TTO takes it. As NOBD did, I give it to the man in the DB.

    Nice work everyone, thanks for contributing and big props out to Spoo for his organising, again!
    Mike, I think your coat looks ace, it's a touch long, but you know this, whatcha-gonna-do, don't mess with the length it'll only upset the balance of the coat. You've got the opposite problem to me, where I'm 7" taller than you so most of my coats look short unless I get them made and even then when I don't pay attention!

    With this post, I think you have been fully assimilated into SFdom.
