    Curious as well.

    Also, are these the pics submitted by the contestants? Stitch has much better fit-pics than this one.

    Sorry stitchy.

    Orgetorix' lapels are of a much better width, these pants scream for cuffs, leg opening looks too small on IS.

    orgetorix by a mile. In stitches gets lots of praise for reasons that bewilder me.

    noap, but i did get a PM telling me it was happening.


    noap, and i agree. but i think they choose fits that are somewhat similar for comparison.


    lol, the SWD one was a bitch fest and had i not bumped it it would likely never has gotten a single reply.


    thank you for being a dick. great job.

    I voted for Stitchy. He can button his jacket without it pulling at the button, and I...well, that's why my jacket isn't buttoned. :embar:

    This surprises me. IMHO the guy gets fucked with and catches more shit than anyone else I can think of.

    Great fits fellas. O really knocked it out of the park. This fit made him look 25lbs leaner.

    Stitch, great coat. You know how much I love that windowpane.

    eh, its not just him. I feel like WAWRYN has turned into a competition over whose got the ugliest sportcoat, combined with a tie made of corrugated cardboard (TEXTURE!!!!!!) and suede shoes. This includes spoo and other bigtimers.


    fwiw, i think Rdiaz puts up some of the best looking outfits on a consistent basis

    Stitchy looks fine. Bad photo and angle throws the spectrum of fit. Only part of his outfit I think that could be improved in its current form are slightly different fitting pants.

    You got to respect his ambition to try something out - it is too easy and obvious to go solid Navy jacket here. Although I suspect in this regard, the easiest and most obvious thing often ends up working best.


    You did well with choosing the three button sport coat / jacket and utilizing solid colors here. Good coordination and fit.

    Would have preferred the jacket buttoned in the middle. If jacket a touch too small, 50bucks would fix that since there should be an inch or so of let out room a tailor could utilize.

    +1 to this. Stitchy catches a lot of shit and mostly takes it well, so I'm not sure where this is coming from.



    Now that I will agree with. There has been a lot of garbage in WAYWRN lately.



    Honestly, I think this is a big part of it. I always think his jackets are too short, but I'm about 75% sure that it's a perspective issue rather than a fit issue.
