    Good picks, was with you on about 90% of them!

    Only 90% [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Well done MoK

    Great work, MoK. Thank you for the time!




    Thanks MoK for the shoutout. You must be out of your mind.

    Cheers guys.
    I see you more as a, "Does this tie go with this shirt?" type of poster.

    My second attempt at guest-editing - Friday 02nd October (late evening GMT) to a similar time Friday 9th

    A far harder week to edit down than last week – far too many good posts.

    A special mention is in order for Mr Sam’s work – as it’s got it’s own thread I won’t include pictures here, but they’ve been some of the highlights of the week.

    Once again my sincerest appreciation for anyone who has taken the time to post a fit.

    This won’t be a definitive list of looks I’ve enjoyed this week, and is probably slightly more biased towards my personal taste than my normal comments in thread. Having said that I won’t necessarily exclude looks that I can appreciate but wouldn’t want to wear. I shall endeavour to ensure that the thread remains highly subjective and completely unfair:

    …………………………………..>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Once again I start the weeks review with a sports jacket I envy. I have to agree with Doc that the tie does benefit from being subdued by the vest though:

    [​IMG]

    It’s normally Niidawg’s tie/ps/shirt combinations that catch my eye, but this time it was a casual fit. The dark denim works well with the natural hues and the scarf balances the jacket:

    [​IMG]

    Attitude:
    [​IMG]

    Obviously appearing in this thread is a much higher accolade than featuring in Esquire:
    [​IMG]

    I’m not convinced this isn’t a blatant attempt at currying my favour through wearing an ascot… If it was it worked.
    [​IMG]

    I’m not sure why this one jumped out at me as much as it did, but here it is because it did:
    [​IMG]

    For the jacket and tie:
    [​IMG]


    As much for the photo as the fit, but it’s a nice fit:
    [​IMG]

    The cap is the cherry on the cake:
    [​IMG]

    I loved this combination of pattern and colour:
    [​IMG]


    On a roll this week with several great looks:
    [​IMG]

    I want this jacket:
    [​IMG]

    I want this suit:
    [​IMG]

    This coat would find a space in my wardrobe too:
    [​IMG]

    Okay so the photograph conveys more atmosphere than detail, but I like it because of that. It’s also an extreme example of how fit can effect perceived body proportions:
    [​IMG]

    Odd waistcoat fit – everyone should try it:
    [​IMG]

    Convinces me a round-neck sweater can work well under a jacket:
    [​IMG]

    I need a brolly:
    [​IMG]

    Simple yet elegant:
    [​IMG]

    The coat makes the look – great fun:
    [​IMG]

    Texture and colour combinations:
    http://www.styleforum.net/attachment...1&d=1255096763


    Use of white:
    [​IMG]

    Far too many shots left out but still I had to keep it to a reasonable length…


    Pic of the week without question:
    [​IMG]

    Well and this one:

    For ease of next editor (mug) I stopped (collapsed at pg 4116)

    Enjoyed the picks, and I think that the cooling weather is only going to make it more difficult to single out fits. I can say I definitely don't envy the next editor.

    I was ill and busy for most of the week, so I missed the daily WAYWRN grind. I really enjoyed your digest, MoK. Keeping up the great work for another week?

    What does one have to do to be nominated for the vaunted Vox Digest Editor position? Seems like good fun!

    Thanks all - it was a tricky week to do, and work explosion didn't help.

    Thanks - no that's me done for [​IMG]

    Another great overview MoK. I haven't gone back and looked, but intuitively it felt like this week's selection was a bit more 'you' than last week's? Anyway, Doc's opening has to be the highlight for me I think. Good stuff.

    Good cross section of WAYWN posters and respective styles.

    Who's the next editor? Panda? Barmis? My opinion is that we should choose the outliers to get the most interesting selections.

    Another great montage, MoK! Thanks for including my "homage" to your emblematic fits.

    Thanks for two rather good weeks, MoK. You included a lot of my favourites. I also like Bill's Tuesday fit best out of his week and I will try and post my own odd waistcoat fits soon I'm humbled to have been second-best pic of the week [​IMG] Bmulford - obviously, MoK has final say. PandA is a great choice, whereas I would be more liable to produce unfunny snark and fill the digest with my own fits

    Actually this time I'd be sort of interested in seeing mafoo doing it.

    Thank you, MoK. Another great digest.

    Who do you like for succeeding you as guest editor next week?

    - B


    Thanks everyone.

    It would be great if every reasonably regular poster has a go at somepoint. I like the idea of an editor with a very contrasting personal style. I wondered whether Ob5cur1ty might consider taking over?
