    This would be an argument for the KISS principle in dressing. But that's boring. :D

    Licious had my vote until Spoo came along. Spoo takes it away because of the darker tie and grey shirt as opposed to grey/silver tie on white.

    Licious, Spoo, Holdfast and Kappelan are the superior looks IMO.

    Already placed my vote, but seriously, very nice quorum for the challenge and awesome fits. I was in between estitchy, Sugarbutch, Crusty, Spoo, Stefan and TTO. One of those 6 got my vote.

    Voted for spoo. Awesome outfit.

    I note Alain Vigneault (of the Vancouver Canucks) is wearing a grey suit, grey-and-white striped shirt and grey-and-black striped tie for tonight's game. Secret SF reader? :)

    What's really pissing me off is that the two guys I put up for this are beating me!

    Voted for Holdfast. Beautiful shades of grey, and overall fit. The cardigan looks especially nice.

    Very tough choice. Some strong entries. I ended up going with HF, I like the play on textures, Spoo was a very very close second and many others looked great too. Next challenge, I will need to pay attention and try to join in.

    TTO, Kappelan & Licious were my favourite looks. Lots of the other looks were nice too. Good turnout.

    My vote went to Kappelan; I really liked the proportions. The jacket & trousers are just different enough in shade to work together (others may disagree, which I suspect is why he hasn't had more votes) and I love the choice of tie. It added some needed dynamism within the monochrome palette that one or two of the other looks lacked. Really good stuff, Kappelan.

    I really liked the cut and fit of Holdfast's jacket. TTO was my close runner up, but I had a last minute crisis of conscience about that red overcheck.

    All fantastic entries, though. Thanks very much to Sharply for filling in for me. Let me know when you need a solid, my friend, and I'll be happy to return the favor.
