As you might have noticed, Men's Clothing does a WAYWT contest each friday. This week's theme is "MC does SW&D" (see below), leading to controversy and general facepalm in the thread on said topic. It has been suggested by many, and I think it's a good idea, to do the opposite - "SW&D does MC". But no one made the thread, so I will.

HERE ARE THE RULES.

1. This is super short notice, so if you can't put together a suit fit by tomorrow, no problem: just use any MC-related fit you may have posted in the past.
2. Alternatively, nominate someone else's fit that they may have posted in the past 6 months or so.
3. PM me the fit and whose it is if it isn't yours.
4. I will make a thread tomorrow.
5. You will vote. MC will probably also vote.


We shouldn't have a problem getting to 10+ people here. I will enter, Aeglus, Nicelynice, Kelvin, Tonio and others have all got fits that will work. But if you haven't posted something MCish in the past, I for one would be interested to see a Willy Cheesesteak MC fit. So make it happen.

Then it might be time to step up your game for next Friday's challenge:

Men's Clothing does Street Wear & Denim

Put those dad jeans & Asics away, 'cuz we're inviting the SW&D crowd to judge your look as well.


Don't wear jeans on Friday? No problem. We understand you've got meetings & clients to impress, lead a workshop...


So take a picture any time - on the weekend, during the week, doesn't matter - just poast on Friday.

...and do SW&D like a boss.

Two addendums.

1. To make this worthwhile I figure I need 10 fits. As I say that shouldn't be a problem but if you people don't pony up we'll just forget about it.

2. No particular format requirement, if you want to shoot from 4 angles I couldn't care less, just don't make it a huge long post - have to more or less fit your post on a screen. Standard WAYWT size I guess. Unlike standard MC Waywt size which apparently is "as long as it's shorter than your company's financing agreement, we're good".

PMed. The timeline seems a bit short though. Give it through the weekend maybe. No reason we should have to stick to MC rules for clothes or Friday WAYWT challenges.

Good idea, guys. I am interested to see your results.

However, for it really to work...you need your regulars to post MC fits. Not just guys that are cross posters and have a history of MC contributions. You have to get out of your comfort zones, just like we are. That is the point of the challenge.

Plus, MC is not a suit only environment. It can be pants (other than jeans) and a nice shirt, sweater, etc. Sportcoat and pants fits are common as well, etc.

Mike

p.s. get ready to hear about things like pull, buttoning point, sleeve length and pitch, shoulder width and design, pattern matching, tie knots and dimples, etc.

Have fun!

Mike

I think Ill enter for this. I don't own anymore suits, but I can probably do a country fit in mcqueen, some work wear and a pair of churchs. I probably won't actually wear it out though.

I'm tempted.

Though I'm conflicted as to whether to go full MC or a more SW&D MC.

Why not make it for next Friday? That way everyone will have a week to take their pics, and then post on Friday.
