This meant that each poster could chose an outfit he was particularly satisfied with and enter it into the challenge. The Americans put up a great fight, but the “furriners” took home the victory. I have picked out a few outfits that I found particularly appealing from the winning team:
Pingson - A man who is incredibly consistent in finding great combinations of colours/patterns (and impeccable fit). A forum favourite, unsurprisingly.
Butler - Refined taste and flair, most of the time in lovely suits and jackets from Steven Hitchcock. Never boring.
Anden - Great poster who is definitely one of my favourites, mainly because he is not afraid of trying out new interesting combinations.
TTO - Oh come on tumblr, you already know Theo. Very personal style, which no one could do better.
Timotune - A man who has found a winning concept in colours and fit, and sticks to it. With subtle improvements all the time, he is now one of the most consistently great posters.
Betelgeuse - I honestly don’t know that much about this poster, but this fit pretty much speaks for itself, flawless.
Me - yep, I am that smug.
Holdfast - While I don’t always agree with his tie choices, this is just brilliant.
RogerP - Again, a poster I don’t know that much about, but that suit & those shoes are just stellar.
tchoy - A bespoke customer who really knows what he likes. He has got an incredibly inspiring tumblr, unfortunately I cant remember the url right now.
sansimeon - Another poster I don’t know anything about (other than the fact that he´s a fellow Scandinavian, perhaps Swede). This fit is just great though.
MrChris - A fellow Swede I think. Obviously a fan of quality suits and shoes. I almost didn’t pick this one out because of the terrible angle, but changed my mind as you can still see it’s a very nice outfit.
Shen - Another Scandinavian who I don’t know that much about. This is classic stuff done good though.
Most posters were in fact great, but I excluded some due to too much cropping, bad angles and/or picture quality.

Your style is truly impeccable! Lovely blog! My question; do your Meermin double monks run pretty true to size? I was planning on purchasing some in snuff suede.
Yes, I’d say so. The Hiro last is pretty narrow though, so the fit was quite snug until I had worn them for a while. Suede is always a different story though ,since it is naturally softer and shapes to your feet faster. I’d say go for it! You won’t find anything comparable at this price level if you pay retail price.
