@Kingstonian I don't like to comment when a challenge is under way, but now this one is over I can only say that I agree. FCs are a bit of fun really and the voting can be bizarre at times. Even on occasions when I have been fortunate enough to do well, I have sometimes known deep down that mine was not the best entry - either in terms of the fit or the picture quality...

@donkeyjacket2 that one is very close to my older MiE DAKS (now gone, sadly) and pretty close to my current Made in Turkey number. Both mine are / were only 2-piece, of course. Where was yours made?

I think its certainly older than 30 years cos the pockets have yellowed from age(or i just hope the person hasnt pissed themselves who had it previously lol) I should have this suit what was made in west germany coming soon too what i got for 15 quid, it should be a similar tone to a leather waistcoat i have hopefully.

I have no idea what people are thinking when they vote for these challenges. That was confirmed when the outstanding Inkss entry did not win a while back and it turned into a best Harrington show instead.

It would be best if you could just see the results without voting and inadvertently adding credence to the competition. I suppose you could just vote for every entry so that no harm was done. Except there is a vote limit in most cases, so scratch that idea.
