    A good outfit should be based on the overall composition, not on nitpicking minutae. I think that both of these shots show plenty.

    I second Viral's thoughts. It would be unfair with how bad these pictures are in the context of judging fit, to choose one over the other based on fit. Overall or otherwise.

    My vote goes to Cravate Noir's piercing gaze. (And is that a DB waistcoat I'm seeing? :slayer:)

    How can you judge "overall composition" with a black and white photo?

    maybe we are seeing two completely different things, and I'm certainly not nitpicking. These pics are terrible for judging fit - one shows the subject so far away and in an overcoat. The second shows the upper third of someone who - in theory - could be wearing boxers on his lower half. How can you judge anything??

    OP - what fit are we judging? Shirts, pants, jackets?

    "Outfit battle," not "how does this fit?" battle.

    Cravate enjoys a significant advantage in this competition because of his wise choices in non-clothing accessories.

    Ask yourself which is more dope. Then vote. Further analysis is not only meaningless, but counterproductive.

    Dopeness I am not Fok. I take these pictures before I go to work for fun. Alas, I lack the skills to take great pictures like some of the members here. I voted for my opponent based on his screen name alone! :)
