    Did you mean to make it multi-choice?

    Yep. Most of the challenge poals are multi. When displaying creative choices, there can be good options on different levels.

    Casted several votes, coudn´t tell who the best man was this time. Some sweet fits there.

    But it looks as if there will be a crystal-clear winner in the end: yfyf, and he totally deserves it.

    I specifically didn't enter because I figured there's no beating Spoo's pinstripe suits but yfyf's usage of purple got a vote out of me as well.

    This is like Michael Jordan showing up at your weekly YMCA pickup game.

    May my simple bespoke 1926 DB 4x2 pinstripe suit qualify me to be in the running? I wore a Brigade of Guards necktie for an extra element of stripe factor.

    yfyf by a clear margin. I also liked the colour co-ordination with the shrubbery. [​IMG]

    Tibor - Im sorry, I didnt realize yours was an entry, nor did it have stripes. Next time, make sure you mention the challenge when you post! I will of course take written votes for you in replies to this thread.

    Wasn't really intending mine as an entry, just thought it was funny there were a number of purple accessories on Friday. Tibor can have my spot if possible.

    I was hoping to vote for Tibor. Now, I really don't know. I think I will give the new guy my vote....great first appearance.

    Help me improve, gentlemen. First, was my entry a train wreck or merely not so great? Second, what would have made it a better combo?

    I could not even see the fit, TB. You need more than a detail shot to be able to evaluate.

    And, to be sincere...while I love that tie, and have one just like it, I would not have paired it with that suit.
