    i'm abstaining. i personally think kg's looks a little better, but it's too close for me to really give a definitive vote. this is like a 49.99% to a 50.01%

    i hope it actually ends in a tie, but it looks like the arm has held a constant 3 vote lead

    (it's a conspiracy)

    what's cool about this fit battle is we see two different ways of wearing the ma-1. kg wears it in a more minimal/modernist sense, whereas the-arm's look is more "street tough" (can't think of a better phrase, sorry). i still haven't lost my hard-on for modernism, so i'm going with kgfan. even though they're both pretty sweet. not feeling the-arm's shoes, but that's beside the point

    I still dislike fake distressing, fake tears on jeans...thought most here did too. Must go with #2.

    in the end, it's less about the fit and more about the personality for a lot of the voters... also i sense there's probably a lot of bandwagoning going on as well since you can see votes. not trying to take anything away from the-arm's fit, which is clearly very VERY good, but just saying given sf's penchant for groupthink.

    Seems more like a contest of camerawork with that filter.

    I thought these were both the same poster

    But anyways, both great fits, like the sneakers and the blue jeans in the first fit more tho

    Now this is fit BATTLE!!!! I´m going with KG because I think all his pieces go great together. The-arm looks cool, but I´m not sold on everything there.

    Tough call. I had to give it to kgfan because of his shoes. Also, it looks like his outfit melds together better too.

    Both look very good. Kgfan gets my vote though.
