    There are a lot of frumpy looks in there.

    I'm sure he means me. That is not a great picture. I still love the coat though.

    This is truly the Big-endian/Little-endian dispute of our times. Epic.

    More like CISC vs. RISC IMO where architecture can be a blend, such as current x86 of RISC inside and CISC outside.

    Forget the shoulder, consider the silhouette. One of these people is in fantastic shape. One has a few pounds to shed. Which is which? [​IMG]

    I didn't mean it in that sense, which in any case I don't understand.

    "If it were socially acceptable I'd drape myself in velvet."

    what are we talking about here? there are nice looks in each group. can someone pls explain the difference btwn them. i sort of get the clean-as-a-whistle vs. molto, but manton's pic doesn't look like it belongs in the molto group.....

    That was a low blow vox. And no doubt a reason why clean is losing this contest. Biased medium!

    While I have no doubt that I would hate the cloth, the cut looks quite good even if it is not what I prefer.

    I fear I am a waffle... voted clean/no only because that's where my preferences, if not my wardrobe lie at the moment. But I truly admire the best of both.


    Provided neither is made of taupe polyester...

    No way. It's neck and neck. I thought we Drapists would be blown out of the water given our few numbers.
