If you spend more time obsessing over footwear than football and your idea of dressing down is going with the solid-colored pocket square instead of the patterned one, your sense of style could be worth $5,000 and some serious bragging rights.
That's what goes to the winner of Esquire's "Best Dressed Real Man in America" competition, a nationwide search for average guys with an above-average wardrobe.
After two years of holding events in five major cities (including L.A. and San Francisco), the contest has moved online. And through May 21, well-heeled gents who think they've got what it takes in the wardrobe department can fill out an application and submit photos at www.esquire.com/bestdressed07.
In July and August, visitors to esquire.com+will vote on their favorite and five finalists will be flown to New York City for a photo shoot with the magazine's fashion director, Nick Sullivan, that will appear in the magazine's September style issue. The grand-prize winner will be announced live on national TV.
Last year's winner was Anthony Rogers, a 37-year-old police officer from Hempstead, N.Y.
