    I've tried to stick to specific praise and kept my criticism general except where the poster has clearly posted old things as an example of 'what I no longer do' (like Spoo).

    I think we had a run there of people posting "here's a bunch of crazy stuff I used to wear before SF that I now concede is hideous" before Barims and Tirailleur1. This isn't my thread, but I think it could be better than just a repository for all the things that Manton has said are ugly or garish. Just eschewing the CBD rules and aesthetic doesn't mean that there can't be some OTHER aesthetic for this thread. In particular, more permissiveness for attention-grabbing dress, and without as much worry for seeming too contrived or vain.

    How to peacock: Barims, Tirailleur, & TTO (maybe Butler, too).

    Thank you. And yes, that decade and the 1960s and 1980s, also. The Peacock Revolution was pretty much the last real period of sustained and tasteful peacocking, I've long believed

    Speaking of which: Bris, would it not be appropriate to do a couple of inspiration posts featuring archive photographs, rock 'n' rollers and the like?

    It would be slightly off-topic given that it's a WAYWRN, but a little inspiration probably would get things going in the right direction.

    What I meant was there should be no shooting of [true] peacocks in here, they are on the endangered list. Other birds are fair game :)

    Close to peacock, I think, given the colour/pattern/contrast combination but perhaps not quite there so spoiler-coding it pending (dis)approval:

    I think we can self moderate here so when I see a peacock I will just say "bingo!" or something.
