    Foo lost because he didn't want the prizes sponsored by Kenneth Cole.

    who would?!?

    To all that are saying looks matter (ie implying racism), last year's winner was black, just saying...

    From the pics I saw in Esquire, I didn't like Trepanier's look, I know clothes can be appropriated, but I just don't understand the rugby as sweater with sport coat thing, what's the point...

    Oh well...

    I had to hold back hysterical laughter when the guy from Esquire stated he wish he could enter the contest to win the prize. Really dude, you really want a $10,000 Kenneth Cole wardrobe?

    Weirdly enough, the first guy looked the best on camera.

    Foo just got introduced to the nation by a former Spice Girl's cover of "It's Raining Men." That is, well, awesome.

    Congrats, Foo, on getting so far. It's quite an accomplishment, and the result was no surprise considering how much flashier Dan's style is than yours. Nice to see a forumite up there, but especially one who sees the value in restraint.

    -1 He lost because Dan is more of what they are looking for. Esquire isn't looking for someone that wears a tweed sportcoat and longwings everyday.

    I just watched the video and the only guy that looked even remotely comfortable on camera was the first guy.

    Dan was creative and his look translated better to the real world. I don't take style tips from Foo. I did download the large versions of every one of Dan's pictures (no homo).

    And Foo looked like a puppet on the TV.

    Still <3 though.

    Ufff .... after seeing that, it seems that there are no winners in such a competition.

    I like the collective sore loser attitude here.

    LOL. I thought his head movements and lack of any facial expression whatsoever were priceless.

    Really? I saw a flash of a smirk. If anything, Foo was the least poser-ish of the lot.

    This thing could have been a lot more interesting if they gave the dudes a chance to talk about their clothes rather than have the two presenters harp on mindlessly.

    Also, if I was on that thing, I would grin my biggest asian slanty eye grin and flash V signs like my life depended on it.

    I thought it was kind of mean to ask the youngest guy about his style and then mention his suit was from eBay. TV just confirmed and exaggerated what I figured from the online pictures.

    Other that, we knew this outcome.

    I wonder if Dan T can button that jacket. It's really bothering me now.
