A Simple Project: Volunteer to be a Judge! - Page 2

post #16 of 37
I have hacked into and have the list of judges and contestants... if you want your information to remain private you will deliver one hundred million dollars into my secret Swiss Paypal account.


Seriously, this should be good.

You're supposed to do this the other way around if you want to be a true Dr. Evil.

but...eh whatever I'll just go ahead and start the revelation process. So submissions are now closed, if you're one of the stragglers. Here are the pics I used, as well as some random comments from me:

picsforranking.tumblr.com

Info on each pic:

1 - random italian dude

2 - I think was a Brioni photoshoot

3 - Nick McClish. This has been one of my least favorite style photos for a long time.

4 - Many people assumed this was foo.gif - this is possible but I'm pretty sure I got it from cutter and tailor somewhere. It definitely wasn't a foo.gif - connected source

5 - Bruce Boyer

6 - Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock (Alec Baldwin)

7 - some random photo

8 - Nick Foulkes

9 - from Luciano Barbera blog

10 - Kiton photo shoot. To me, the kind of thing that can look nice in a photo like this but probably ridiculous IRL.

11 - Kobe Bryant in Giorgio Armani.

12 - some random guy

13 - random guy

14 - from some site on how to dress casually at work

15 - Kevin Spacey in House of Cards

16 - some italian dude

17 - Gianni Agnelli. This has always been one of my favorite style photos.

18 - italian dude

19 - same italian dude

20 - same italian dude

21 - random guy

Data and other comments to follow, starting tomorrow, I hope.

Wow. I was with you until 17. shog[1].gif I gave Gianni Agnelli a 3?

OK, here are the instructions I gave the judges, so you'll know what they were told and what data I have:
Quote:

Thank you again for agreeing to participate in this project. The only part that is absolutely necessary is that you give a rating to each pic, from 1 to 10.

Think of each pic as being someone you see on your way to work in the morning. A rating of 1 means you think they look terrible. A rating of 10 means you think they look amazing.

Inevitably each judge will have a slightly different scale, but try to think of 3 as average compared to the guys you see wearing ties in the morning, 6 as 75th percentile, 8 as 90th percentile, and 10 as you don't know if you've ever seen anybody look that good. You may give ratings that are not integers, for instance, 3.7, 8.5, etc..

In addition, you may add comments. Separate these out into two categories. Label the first "Reasons" and include any justification or reasoning behind why you gave a particular rating. Things you liked, didn't like, etc.. Label the second "Impressions" and describe what impression this person gives off to you - laid-back, funny, austere, pretentious, self-centered, etc..

Wherever there are faces, I have obscured them. I have tried to choose pictures that are not immediately recognizable. If you recognize a picture, or notice some clues that give you an idea of where it comes from, try to ignore these as much as possible and focus just on what you see in the picture. If you do recognize a picture or an individual, please make a note of it in your comments.

Finally, and this is entirely optional, it would be interesting to have some minimal demographic information on each judge. When you submit your scorecard, if you don't mind sharing your:

Age
Income range (<$50k/yr; $50k-100k/yr; >$100k/yr)
Highest academic degree attained
Location (city or town is fine - but if you're in a suburb as opposed to the city itself, please note that)

that would be helpful. Once again, this part is entirely optional. These data might be published in aggregate form, but will never be publicly identified with your scorecard or your screenname. In no way will your responses be weighted more or less heavily based on your answers or non-answers to these questions.

unbel, it would be helpful if you posted the pics along with the ratings and the sources of each. The need to cross-ref with the Tumblr is just too much work.

He couldn't win Esquire's best dress, but he takes the title as SF best dressed.

And isn't that the one that really counts? #4 is indeed foo.gif as the trademark FooFold gives away.

I'm pretty sure that #11 is Kobe Bryant. I think that it was in Kobe's cover edition of GQ. Kudos to The Black Mamba.

 

Are these scores on a 1-10 scale? IMO, #5 is complete rubbish....6.4?...really? That's the only one that immediately jumps out at me.

 

It's loose and obviously just for entertainment, but this is a nice idea. Kudos to you too OP.

I think #5 is Boyer.
