    ^^ I think he meant that you have selected the nominations while there still might be some members who are yet to post pics.

    Pattern Frenzy Friday!
    The core challenge is to be able to incorporate those patterns into a whole outfit that pleases the eye, without tipping over into a Hieronymus Bosch-esque level of fantastical insanity.


    Wear whatever you like, but no solids allowed (shoes and other leather accessories are excepted). Your shirt, suit, tie, square, socks and so on must all have a pattern with at least two colours. They can be as muted/small or as loud/flashy as you like but they must all have a multi-coloured pattern. Texture/weave doesn't count, there need to be some different colours within fabric. So a black/white herringbone jacket counts as pattern even though it seems solid grey from a distance... but a plain grey herringbone would be a solid and therefore not allowed. A solid donegal doesn't count, but a multi-coloured donegal that appeared solid from a distance would be permitted. You get the idea.

    The aim is, of course, to create the best looking outfit within those parameters. [​IMG]

    Mmmm, That's a more difficult question than first appears. Patterns by definition repeat in a predictable manner. However, I feel it's used more loosely sometimes. I would consider a birds-eye a pattern, even though from a distance it may look solid. However, I would consider a pick & pick (Sharkskin) a solid even though it does look on closer inspection it looks like it has a repeating pattern. Good question and I'm not sure I've answered it.

    I was about to say, there is not absolute parity in the selected shots, since some selections are collages which contain closeups, and other individual shots are in fact closeups. In order to make an apples to apples comparison, the selected photos should be similar in nature. MBreinin's initial entry is a case in point. Bleachboy, Spoo, and even PG's submission are other examples where the patterns/textures are not as up front as they could be for apt assessment. Nyr I would exclude in this case, since his shots were requoted enough to burn an indelible impression in one's brain [​IMG] (He was one of my picks, btw...)

    Spoo, why did you go back to T-Ball rules, where you pick more than one winner?

    "Best" One that surpasses all others.
