    I just passed in stiches here in the hallway at SF and he muttered something that sounded like “week beeches.” Dunno what that was about.

    Anyway, some Glen check for you.

    Be advised that if immediately after I post this David Reeves proceeds to post a pink plaid three-piece suit I’m going to be quite miffed. Similarly if Cleav shows up in a bespoke POW Scooby costume.

    Just sayin’ …

    Cheers,

    Happily for you, both David Reeves and Cleav have already posted entries, so no surprises in re: pink plaid three-piece suit or bespoke POW Scooby Doo costume - at least not from them.

    As for Stitchy, you heard him on the phone with his arborist, discussing "weak birches" - obviously some major yard work to be done at the Villa Stitches, though not on Shabbos. Expect more from that source after sunset . . .

    POW wedding tie for a friend's wedding today. Suit already got a compliment from a random older gentleman today. Will post a full length shot if I can, but am wearing black punch cap oxfords.

    Hi all,

    Already a lot of very good entrances, I'm posting just for the number, and because I fortunately thrifted this gingham SC last Wednesday [​IMG]

    ...

    Funny thing, I think my last sketch could also participate in this challenge

    Nice sketch!

    Worn just for the challenge. And I'll be wearing the hell out of this cone winter (so, like, five times tops)

    @chocsosa is streaking ahead of the field, and rightly so.

    I didn't vote this time, as I thought all the entries were good. But Choc's fit is really outstanding and I'm glad it's being recognised as such.

    Is this the suit supply suit?

    Could be the way you're standing but something seems off with the jacket...

    Howard Yount. Shoulders aren't perfect and the lapel needs to be re-pressed. SuSu fits me much better than this, but I wanted a flannel houndstooth and it was cheap. I have brown flannel pants and some soft, moss colored three season pants coming in shortly (from a suit from KW) that'll work, I think, well with the jacket on its own (one day, I'll buy a suit whose jacket can't function as a separate, but that'll be a long ways away, I think).

    But what really bugs me (besides the lighting) is that the tie isn't straight.

    Edit:
    Unbel: good catch. That's one of my older shirts; all my more recent ones have higher shirt collars. I also have a giant neck. 16.5. And I am a pretty standard 38R in all other respects.
