I think it would have been more accurate, and spared people a lot of wasted time, had they entitled the contest "Esquire's Search for the Best Dressed Male Wannabe Celebrity in America."
Manton - we welcome your comments on this suit: "Luke Simard of Cambridge looked dapper in this suit, hand-made in Thailand."
So, so, very, very stupid.
What's more pathetic, that the tool below drove all the way from Virginia to show off his crappy outfit, or that he actually made the top 10 cut?
Does the guy that won look a little off or is it just me?
Do you think Luke got the date confused with the Pimps + Ho Ball?
I will keep my eye open for this one in my travels on the Red Line.
Ahahahahahahaha. I bet he got beaten up in the parking lot after the show.
He's much better dressed than the winner of the previous heat, in my opinion. If you mean a little off in the head... yes. I really don't think it's possible to judge best-dressed based on one outfit - I would think 'best dressed' would encompass the ability to dress well for a variety of different occasions. Who knows, these guys might look like complete slobs the other 364 days of the year.
Or our friend Luke might, well, look presentable?
The United Way guy was decent though the reporter really needs to learn how to spell the name of fashion designers correctly.
You don't like my handmade Thai suit? The white is an ode to the spring and summer; the pinstripes an ode to Savile Row. The jacket might be cut a little long, but my tailor kept telling me that's what's fashionable now.
I guess I should gain some weight, get some too-tight-in-the-waist jeans, and tuck in an argyle sweater.
How could that guy possibly have won? He looks like a freaking Banana Republic mannequin. Either choose someone well dressed, or choose someone creative. They chose neither.
He looks to me like a short-sleeve shirt with tie kind of guy. A well-meaning but clueless female friend has rented him some gear and has entered him into the contest to boost his confidence.
After seeing him in the paper, his workmates will deliver a seemingly endless series of wedgies - and with good cause.
I think you have to look at the people doing the judging. A guy who has the job of fashion editor at Esquire should be able to do better than a passe black blazer over a bland striped shirt unbuttoned to show an obscene amount of bare chest. Amateurs.
What? No popped collars?.
That's when the contest moves to Connecticut. Jon.
