Makeover Fail | Fail

We're not going to mention the site (because we actually like it a lot) or show the guy's face (out of pity) but a regional blog ran a makeover contest to get the winner some new clothes from local retailers. You take a look at these photos, and you think, damn, I can see why they picked this man. The poor guy's wearing jeans that are so long he steps on them, dated and clumsy square-toed loafers, and a Colonel Buffalo Bill Howdy Pardner Wild West shirt. Clearly a guy who needs help.

...and then you realize, with horror, that these are the AFTER photos. (shudder)

Maybe that's the first rule of doing a makeover: make sure the AFTER doesn't look like a BEFORE.
