    You know who seriously needs to get a new image host? MBreinin, that's who.

    Also, I am impressed as hell with this week's entries! This was not an easy challenge, but you guys really pulled it off with style!

    I overthought my entry. So much damn gray stuff in my closet -- I just grabbed anything with a pattern. That and I should have entered it into last week's crazy pattern challenge.

    This was a good one, so many of you guys looked great...TC, NOBD, UC, Lufty, VV, Jeffry, but MoK's big comeback has inspired me to cast my vote for him.

    I like that you can only vote for one person.

    fyi mine is the best because you can convert it to grayscale and only the tie really changes.

    Spoo,

    Thanks for taking the time to collect all the pics into 1 page.

    PandArts was my pick. Great fit. Not a fan of the shoes, however.


    Also, TC manages to pull off the "golf pant" blazer. Confounding!
    I think the sweater changes the vibe. Looks great!

    I nearly went with niidawg because I like those colours (and he had no votes) but then went with groupthink because UrbanComposition did do the best with the theme.

    All of you guys have been seriously nailing it...made the decision really hard...i loved Rob´s combo, the top half was a killer. But then TTO did a great job, too, just as Bleachboy and MoK.

    Anyway, here´s my vote: UrbanComposition!!

    Not that i would give anything on group think, but the monochromatic theme has never been done better...

    But really: praise for all you guys!

    LOL ... Come on, you know i needed the pity vote. Honestly i think there were only 4 truely monochromatic fits, and i give the edge to TTO for having blue shoes to match.

    I like that you can only vote for one person.
    Devil's advocate here:

    If we intend to line up behind JP's suggestion that we use these challenges to help members improve, it might make more sense to allow multiple votes. That way, members can vote not only for the champion -- who will no doubt frequently be one of the long-time regulars -- but can also shine a little love on those of us who are new to the game and/or who can't afford bespoke.

    If I've learned anything in all my years of teaching, it's that people thrive with encouragement. [​IMG] Just a thought.
