    Some of the fits that FM chose are also in my potential top 5 or 10 from this thread, list.

    so i went and finished up the month of jan 2013, and before you see the pics i wanted to point out a few things. 1. Edit - Clags is a butt. 2. for anyone who thinks that people get 20 likes on name recognition alone, please note that i passed by fits from pingson, timo and butler than fell shy. 3. crusty seems to garner 11-13 likes almost every time and cant figure out what more of his fits are not getting more love. and with that here are the fits!

    Good call on Maomao. Dude has his own style to extent that few others do. And he always looks really good.



    There are some really good Foofits but that's not one of them.

    I don't have an adjective to describe just how horribly bad that square is on its own, let alone with gunclub jacket.

    Guys, 20 thumb minimum, not 20 thumbs or close but I really liked it. We introduce our personal tastes and the implication is that our tastes in what others wear are better than others. And while that may be justifiable in some cases, it undermines the objective method of selecting fix for this thread.

    The only sub-20 fit was Timo's mustache. Would you like me to remove Timo's mustache from this thread? Do you know what that mustache will do to you. To Us?!?

    Does it or does or does it not have 20 likes?

    If not please link original timo post again so we can get it to 20 likes and beyond.

    Thank you for posting all the fits! I really like the top 5s as well, especially the ones with explanation!

    So, if thumb inflation will continue to rise, will the standard of the thumbs needed to reach this thread rise as well? It would be fun to see how this progresses, and whether the thumb culture has changed only temporarily or permanently because of this thread.

    I actually meant to post the one of him at lunch in London. I remember him wearing a tweed jacket and a very nice Ancient Madder. I can't seem to find it, though.

    Per that example, I'm kinda drawn to it for some reason. Completely absurd and far from in good taste, but something about the execution doesn't have me immediately running for the bathroom (like I'd think I would). For the record, I'd never attempt something like this.
