  • Jeff

    my grandfather had at the wedding the same pants like dacian spanu

  • Jeff

    Number 6 it s amazing! Suit with shoes without hose!!:)))

  • http://undefined Dick Lickerson

    Esosa is easily the best. How is #5 even in the list? He looks like Paddington Bear got Karen Carpenter pregnant and she birfed one of The Proclaimers.

  • John G.

    I love the looks, especially the newsboy ivy cap look. I have a very similar hat from Mercer and James that I mix into about half my styles:

  • Gabriel

    #4 Hilton is solid. I like the patterns he used and also the versatility of the suit. Great for dress up or dress down. The sneakers are refreshing but you go a lot further in Fine Apparel if you go with a great loafer. My partner and I have a small design house in Philly and would love to work with you. Good Luck.

  • Prof. Q. A. Bandy

    I do believe I prefer #5.
    Something about it simply seems a bit more on the realistic side.
    (#2 came in close for me, but that was because he appears to be on a playground)

  • Queensgirl

    Adam L is the only one that looks naturally styled rather than just getting dressed up for a comp. He looks so comfy in himself. Doesn’t matter about the numbers Adam be confident with the handsome man you are :)

  • Joe

    1. From Transylvania – check
    2. Oxblood shoes – check
    3. Perfectly fitted suit the color of blood – check

    Voting for Medard for possibly being Dracula.

    • Joe

      If Medard wasn’t likely Dracula, I’d a voted for Hilton or Jeffrey P. – looking fly gents.

  • http://undefined heavyhitter

    Definitely not a fan of sneakers with a suit, and on top of that white socks. It’s mixing business with leisure, work and play. I don’t see ‘style’ in that at all. You might as well drink red wine with fish, eat your filet well done, and throw an automatic in your Ferrari. Disregard for the ‘rules’ isn’t stylish, it’s chaos.

    • Dave P

      Depressing to be you mate.

  • Adrian B

    Pretty positive I’ve seen a pic of Hilton floating around tumblr before with the same fit minus the jacket. Either way, I’m normally not a fan of the suit and sneakers look but bravo.

    You most definitely get my vote.

  • I wear pants

    I like all of these guys, but I’m gay, so…

  • Nick Mangold

    Winner gets my sister

  • Justin

    I was going to submit my pic in my porch furniture, but someone stole it.

  • Marty Irish

    I voted for Cletus.

  • Drew

    What??? 5 and 3 are clearly the best!

  • Emme

    I voted for Adam L. His style choice is awesome and you can just tell he is comfortable in what he is wearing. Hilton is a close 2nd.

  • justincredible

    ETB is my least fave person.

    Jeff is my vote.

  • Like that

    I’m interested in who places second in this contest.

  • Dartmouth

    I don’t know if you know, but I visited this page a few times to see how the race is going and the comment section (cause I’m that cool) and the voting poll resets itself every time. So I’ve been secretly voting for the same person about 3 times now :O

  • John B

    Voted for Jeffrey, but had a hard time choosing this month. Hilton and Viorel were close, but I’d prefer different socks and tie (respectively). Still, great looks!

  • Esperanza Zorrilla

    Awesome outfits

  • http://undefined HitsRus

    classic style without being pretentious.

    • http://undefined HitsRus

      talking about Jeff P.

  • Theguybehindthelens

    Hilton really killed it. When I conceptually think about the elements he used I could’t imagining the look turning out so damn well. I never really liked the sneakers with a suit look but it looks really natural here. Cudos to everyone else in the top ten too. You guys all brought your A game.

  • Jack

    Voted for that hipster kid.

  • Dave

    All solid and awesome. Voted for #10 for the colour palette :)

  • Medard

    I’m really honored for making the cut. Thanks guys! It’s good to see that Romania is coming from behind. Good luck to all these stylish gents!

  • Richard L.

    Hilton, please.

    That outfit is amazing. Love the balance between how casual and classy it is.

  • Vlad

    Romania power! :))

  • Chris

    It has to be Medard just for the colour of that suit.

    • Medard

      Thanks Chris! I really appreciate it.

  • Whitney

    Really good picks, TSB! I think the shirt and shoes in Todd’s look did if for me. I’m loving the outfit!


  • Nick McCann

    This was the hardest poll to vote in so far. Everyone is looking amazing.

  • http://undefined CurlyJ

    I like my heated on a skillet, but will eat it cold

  • http://undefined ETB

    I’d like to drink some Keystone with Jeff P.

    • Snot

      I would have voted for ETB, his sense of style is my taste

  • LouCaves

    Nice. Chi-town in the house.

    Tough decision to make as all you gents look good. I can’t imagine the TSB guys having to pick ten from who knows how many entries.

    I wanted to support Chicago peeps but I went with a familiar face in Esosa. Dude needs to recognized. Seems like he’s a stockier dude but because of the impecacable fit he doesn’t look bulky.

    Good luck to all.

    Thanks, TSB.

    • Esosa

      Thanks Lou! When it comes to my size (6″9, 245lbs) its all about fit.. the goal for me is to dress down my size and make me appear normal size, in real life and pictures.. which comes down to fit.. so thanks for the recognition homey!

      • JC

        What!? 6’9? Man, I would have never guessed. Your fit has been on point in every photo I’ve seen of you. You’re really a testament to how fit can make anyone look proportionate and “normal size.” Haha, hats off to you man, I’m a fan for sure. Be blessed!

      • LouCaves

        6’9″ and 245lbs?! See, man? That’s why I voted for you.

        I agree with everything you said JC.

  • Tom B

    I’m liking the simplicity of Todd R and those shoes, but the layers on Hilton W are awesome as well

  • http://undefined Jeff

    Wow! What an honor, I can’t believe I made it. Thanks TSBMen crew. Good luck to all the contestants

    • Adam L.

      Good luck, man. By the way, if by some chance I do win, tell your friend not to shoot himself. ;)

      • S&L

        #5 should definitely win. He reminds me of myself except I’m in Chicago. Also, I love Weeden.

  • http://undefined Jeanscuffed

    CLEARLY Medard is a Dracula. Hailing from Translyvania, wearing a nice ass velvet blazer, Raybans covering his eyes from the sun, and this photo is obviously taken outside his castle (we see you).

    …ok coming down from my sugar high

    My picks were between Jeffrey and Hilton. Both have strong aesthetics (Jeffrey with the badass bomber and Hilton with the layers and PF Flyers). Ultimately, I went with Hilton (I took points off of Jeffrey for undershirt poking out the top)

  • Dacian S.

    I am very happy that I was selected to be part of these stylish finalists ! All my gratitude goes to the TSB crew for putting these giveaways on, I know that is pretty difficult to do it. Thank you and I must say that you have a loyal base of readers here, in Romania. Have a nice day !

  • Patrick Germany

    A lot of great dressed Gentlemen. But I still can’t believe I didn’t make it this month. You gotta give the the German guys some looooove! ;)

    I voted for Hilton W. (number 4) by the way. He definetly nailed it and deserves the win.

  • W.

    oh wow, TSB has many romanian fans

  • Felix

    Adam L easily – definitely, in terms of aesthetic coherency while retaining individual flair he won. The red pop of the jumper fits perfectly with the more subdued teal of the coat. Earth tones throughout the look ground it. Fantastic boots.

    Dacian is close, but the look is slim and a bit chrissmassy. The red is bright, khakis probably better.

    • Adam L.

      Haha, this post made my day! Thanks for your vote, Felix!

      And thanks to TSB for hosting this contest. I am honored to be in the top 10!

  • Mitko Karshovski

    I keep seeing entries Top 10 picks from Romania and it makes me really happy since I grew up in neighboring Bulgaria but I am curious as to why there are so many entries from there. Is there like a menswear movement going on there or does TSB just have a cult following there?

  • Todd R.

    Honored to be among such stylish gents. Thank you TSB Team for the selection.
