    Great job, everyone! This was a fun one.

    Yes it was. I vote RIGHT NOW for Round II.

    The guys who don't post their faces I think take a hit on a challenge like this. Hard to envision a celeb DTO without a look including a face, unless like NOBD, his DTO didn't include one.

    Agree.

    Im watching my number and TTO's number closely.... [​IMG]

    Impossible to vote for one of you and not the other! Both looked grand.

    Outstanding looks! This is without a doubt one of the best contests.

    Indeed. THE best AFAIC.

    So many great looks! Can I withdraw my entry?

    No you can't. You had a great look and the fact that you live the whole Mad Man thing every day meant you HAD to be here.

    Excellent work, gentlemen.

    EDIT: We can vote for multiple entries? How did I miss this? All of that agonizing for naught...

    I voted Org but if you wore your Huntsman DB (and why didn't you?!) I'd have voted for you Spoo.

    So bummed I wasn't able to take part of this, but judging from its success (and I think this was by far the BEST, and most fun) I have a feeling we may see a round 2 at some point down the road. I had something cool picked out too...oh well, next time.

    Now to you fine gents, a few comments. The guys who don't post their faces I think take a hit on a challenge like this. Hard to envision a celeb DTO without a look including a face, unless like NOBD, his DTO didn't include one. In particlular Spoo and SG-22 would take a hit.

    As far as my vote, it appears my man crush with Orgetorix will continue [​IMG] . Not only was it GREAT, but OUT OF NOWHERE, which I think puts him over the other great entries (NOBD, Parker, Mike, TTO, Harvey, Acrid, PA, and UC). Though Parker's was GREAT too. I feel i had to go with Org being I was quoted by Esquire this summer (even if it was misquoted) saying Fred Astaire was a style muse.


    I was hoping to see you come up with something cool, Rob. I am sure this will be done again....I have some more DTO's I can bring out.

    As far as the faces, I don't look anything like Tom Wolfe (hell, I look like I ate Tom Wolfe, [​IMG]). Also, I have the world's meanest camera. Instead of "only" adding 10 pounds, it adds 20. 10 for my body and the bonus 10 it bestows upon my face. I practically cry when I edit my pictures.

    This was a great, great week. Limited number of entries, but everyone was solid. There really is not a bad entry here. I have never voted for so many contestants. I really don't know who my favorite is, I liked so many. I give Parker the Photoshop award. Orgetorix gets the closest to reality award, Spoo and Theo were both just awesome...Harvey totally captured that old film look and Acrid's picture was great...it looked like a Pro shot it, and he looked alot like Clooney.

    I really feel outlcassed this week, as I just kinda went with the vibe of my DTO. I do appreciate the votes though and I am shocked to see so many.

    Great job, guys.

    Mike

    Orgetorix's was my favourite in terms of replicating a look and so I had to award his outfit one of my votes, but Parker's was my favourite outfit overall, and esp. in terms of internalising/personalising his chosen look well. He's who I'd like to see win out, though I suspect O will take it.

    PandA - you can have the comb over or the goatee. Not both. You look like you're going to rob a liquor store to pay for your speed habit. Not good.

    I'm a pothead [​IMG]
