    Sorry, but Foo did not stand a chance. I know you guys love him, but he was the bottom of the barrel. Ontario had the best look to me and the confidence to back it up.

    http://www.esquirebdrm.com/prizes $15K cash + year's supply of Nivea products $10K Kenneth Cole wardrobe IWC Portuguese Chronograph Automatic Trip to NYC for fashion week Not bad.
    It's good, I don't use Nivea, IWC or Kenneth so flip this shit for an additional 8K or so and you've just made 23K. Not bad at all for looking like a TB reject. Lets be honest here its not about forum loyalty; Trepanier's dressed like a dork. I liked Santino's jacket, switch his jeans and he would have been a contender. Ontario wasn't my thing but I appreciate the bellbottoms.

    just from what I saw on MSNBC, I'd vote for the first guy, he looked really comfortable. Foo was way too uptight, but not that it would change the outcome though, gratz on coming so far.

    Doesn't suprise me to hear an anti-Asian bias was the reason for Foo's not being selected on this forum where I feel for whatever reasons Asian posters get fawned over (some rightfully, others not). As far as the result, I think it would have been antiFoo for him to have won. His look is based on classicism and anti-trend. Esquire is a magazine all about trends. It speaks volumes about how well he dresses to have been selected in the top 5, to transcend trend. I'm sure even he would have been disappointed to have been named america's, for all intensive purposes, "trendiest" guy.

    Is that just for the winner? What did the runner-ups win?

    I will repeat:

    BS

    Seriously, Foo looked the best in the lineup. Dan looked ok, the other three looked pretty awful.


    I disagree- I thought the two black guys looked well-dressed and most comfortable in this appearance. I know the winner wasn't judged on this appearance, but if those two come off looking that "comfortable" and put together on a daily basis - then they were the winners IMO.

    This is bullshit!! Foo is way cooler than these twats. He doesn't appeal to the unwashed masses, however. What was second prize anyway?

    Agree- but let's not for get the power of having a large forum voting for somebody as well. [​IMG]

    I totally agree. Foo looked downright creepy.

    Well, that was . . . fun. Honestly, it was the most terrifying, slowest 8 seconds of my life. There was supposed to be a blue 'T' on the floor to stand on, but there was only a small white 'T' that I could barely see, so I wound up looking at the ground on my way in.

    The set is really, really tiny--as tiny as my foyer.

    Everyone has more AAAC points than me.
