Reeves and Coxsackie because... pink. That is all.
I am surprised Steed is not getting more votes here. He, slyguy and RoSaCe were the only ones who let off the brakes on this one, and Steed still managed to look like he would actually get away with wearing that get-up in normal life.   Of course Leaves looks great, but there was nothing fruity about that look.
