    As an aside, I cannot help thinking how suits are often better than SCs. Many at SF seem to prefer odd jackets, perhaps because their (sartorial) versatility and layering possibilities. Yet outside casual fridays, odd jackets don't get much use: too casual for many offices or / and professions and yet too formal for regular weekend activities (while being too informal for festive Saturday dinners), they fall somewhere into the sartorial no-man's land. In this contest, too, suits were winners for me.

    So many great shots it's next to impossible to choose a clear winner. For me it's yfyf for the best combination (blue shirt, brown tie etc.), NOBD for the best pics, and Spoo's three-piece for the sheer in-your-face stylishness.

    true, but pinstripes also kick ass in most any situation--

    pinstripes can look a bit mafioso.
    especially black stripes on white.
    but that may be exactly what some men want.

    new year's eve (our digital camera appears to be from the future), decided to go with a suit instead of the tuxedo to see a jazz show and drink/ revel a little.

    newly purchased navy and french blue Thurston braces, after seeing these in an issue of The Rake mag:

    if these suspenders are made of the same material as some I once bought, I would avoid them.

    The fabric shreds after about 3 wearings.

    Mr. c_bourgeois: to avoid making an ass of yourself, lurk around the board for a few months to learn a bit before commenting (necroposting is not appreciated, Thurston braces do not fall to pieces after three wearings unless you wear them to a cage-fight or the like).

    NOBD sick

    Thanks, NYR. I like your DB outfit with the light blue shirt and washed jeans; looks young and fresh. Have you tried something like this with your grey fresco jacket (if I remember correctly)? I think you should go tie-less more often...


    Brilliant!

    Thanks, AoT. Appreciate it.

    Thanks for the kind words, gentlemen, and Happy New Year!

    This looks great. I really, really dig SB Peak Lapel suits, but nobody seems to wear them. Who makes this one?

    Thanks, the suit is Versace.

    Looking good, TC. Good to see the real you make a comeback!

    Mike


    Thanks, man. Your NYE fit was perhaps the best I've seen from you. Suit fits great.

    You be rocking it TC! Are those self-colored stripes?

    Thanks. Tonal stripes, yes.

    - well said & time you got a hair cut Dad

    Just got one!

    Well as luck would have it, this look also happens to be your personal style personified. Absolutely well done. Previous Fabio jokes aside, your hair looks great...though I am not sure it works for a well-suited attorney...unless you are looking to star in a Disney remake?

    Thanks. LOL It's looking a lot messier than usual because it was so windy up on the roof. It works fine for me, I've only ever received positive remarks from clients, but those tend to be pretty cool guys.

    ^ Thank you.

    This one was cut and made by Mr. Green's and his resident master tailor, Mr. Rafael Tumalle.

    Thanks, HF. I know there is a stigma against buttoning a 6x2 as a 6x1...

    Like most things, it's a question of doing it right. The right jacket, on the right person. It works brilliantly with that jacket, on you.

    I'm really impressed that so many of the contestants went with looks that demonstrate their personal style rather than what would draw the most votes...

    That should be what a board like SF is all about! [​IMG]

    Very cool. Especially the hair. I actually always wanted to grow my hair, but mine is too thin for it to look good.

    This was probably my own favorite from 2010...

    A worthy choice. Looks good, and interesting too.

    Looking great HF - you've got quite the range of fits...I especially covet your overcoats.

    Thanks! I really enjoy wearing overcoats; it takes quite some willpower to resist adding more. I found two earlier this year that I liked a lot, but I just don't have any more room for clothes. I refuse to add more storage space; the space limit is a useful practical boost to resisting the urge to add more! [​IMG]

    Hope everyone is enjoying New Year's Day, and not nursing too painful a hangover.

    This is worth a re-quote. A handsomely tailored suit. Much to admire.

    Cheers, Peace, and a Happy New Year to all.

    Hi RLP, this is actually a thread for photos, not clothing lists. Kitonbrioni's lists throw people off, but his photos are linked in his sig.

    Hands down the very best outfit I've seen this year. Amazing! The monkstraps make it particularly striking.

    [​IMG] Thanks, man. I'm glad you like the monks. I actually can't stand wearing black shoes, so I ordered these monks thinking they would be a sporty compromise when black shoes are called for. I'm thrilled with how they turned out.
