Rock Star: Martin's Closet: The Reality Series

I can't remember how long ago Lora mentioned it (hence, I can't find the post to link to) but she mentioned how guys tend to hold onto clothes too long whether they wear them or not. I'm very guilty of this and my closet is full of clothes I've received during Christmas/birthdays and have never worn. Which gave me an idea that I alluded to on her blog. There are some of the offending garments in the photo there ---->

Anyhow, I've put it in my head that this is the premiere introduction episode for the new monthly reality series Rock Star: Martin's Closet. Yes, during this month, I will choose 12 items from hundreds manufactured from all around the world in their chance to win a position in my closet. This will be very difficult and there will probably be tears but I will let YOU make the final choice. All 11 of the items that don't make the final cut will be donated to charity (and if they don't take them... a thrift store or yard sale.) I promise to see this competition to a successful end and if all goes well we may have a second season. At the end of next month, you will meet the contestants. My guess is that China will have many entries.

I say we vote off the lime green shirt....even if you don't own one, we should vote it off...

LoraLoo said...

My vote is the Hawaiian shirt. I can't see you in any way/shape/form in a Hawaiian shirt. So if you have one, that's my vote. If it's lime green, even better...

This post gave me a good laugh! What a great idea.

I definitely agree w/ Lora....no man, I do not care how old/young/rich/poor should wear a hawaiian shirt outside the boundaries of the islands. At least females have the sense not to wear hula skirts outside of the islands.

Get rid of black....hate black on men.

Martin, if you haven't woren it in three years, get rid of it. Lime green doesn't look good on anyone. Yek!

While I understand you are fan of 80s music, I'd get rid of any shirts where the collar is meant to be worn "up."

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if you had some Vietnam in the leaders...

When we are done with your closet can we work on my husband's? He has clothes from HIGH SCHOOL he won't get rid off even though they have been gathering dust for over 15 years!!

Oh and I vote for the bright blue and black plaid shirt...grunge is over and that color is too bright anyway.

This is a very fun idea! Your so creative.

I hate to admit this, but I need to be honest: I like SOME Hawaiian shirts on guys. The classy kind with muted tones like the one's my boss wears from Tommy Bahamas.

AND - I love men in black clothes! Very artsy and sexy.

With that said - see that white shirt with the black emboirdery on it? Keep that one! It's retro and you'd look cute in it.

After reading Barbara's comment, I had to go back and look at the picture...closely. LOL There is something that resembles a Hawaiian print, I hadn't expected that. The white with black embroidery? I agree with Barbara, keep it. And as far as black goes, LOVE it. Keep it. I also agree it's sexy. I remember you well in.black. :)

The one thing that scares me is all the wire hangers...

This should be an interesting contest. As much as it is meant for humor, it's a good idea to clear out things that just won't get worn. Thanks for all the input. Although, the hawaiian shirt has to stay. Kinda sentimental reasons but most of all... I've never seen an unhappy person in a hawaiian shirt. B)
