Will probably watch the Oscars tonight and thought I'd have some fun by scoring the men's style errors and rate the best and the worst. Anyone in perfect white tie will have take the palm. Anyone in a suit is automatically disqualified. For the men in tuxes, I would assign an automatic 100 points and deduct as follows: Notch lapel: -10 Wing collar: -10 Obviously pre-tied bow tie: -10 Four-hand-tie: -25 No tie: -50 More than one accessory (tie, cummerbund, pocket square) not black (or white for the pocket square): -20 No shirt studs: -15 Matching tie and cummerbund in anything other than black: -30 Failure to wear a vest or cummerbund (except for db): -40 I would further deduct an unspecified number of points for anything egregiously garish or untraditional. Anyone else want to play this game to see who is the best and worst at the Oscars? Criticisms or suggested emendations of my scoring system would be welcome.
