Rock Star: Martin's Closet: Episode 1

Usually, you don't want to start a series with bad news. 4 of our 12 contestants were disqualified for doping (we've never seen such thick threads) while 1 opted out of the contest. This leaves us with 7 contestants and a shorter season. Let's see who we have (click on each photo for a better view):

Contestant 1 is from China (57% linen 43% rayon) and has probably been worn more than any of the others (usually over t-shirts.)

Contestant 2 is from India (100% cotton) and might have been worn once or twice but I you'd think that I'd remember.

Contestant 3 here is from Myanmar (which I have no idea where the hell that is but it's 100% cotton) but I'm pretty sure that it was washed once. It just may have been after pulling all the tags off of it.

Contestant 4 is from Pakistan (100% cotton Chaps/Ralph Lauren.) Never worn but I'm sure care was taken in making it. I think that I'd be afraid to get it dirty.

Contestant 5 is from India (100% cotton.) I think that I used it for the top of a Halloween murder victim one year but it might look alright under a t-shirt someday, I guess.

Contestant 6 is another Indian entry (55% cotton 45% rayon.) I think that I tried it on once but with the lack of a collar, I don't see a shirt working under it.

Lastly, we have our Seoul Korean entry (85% acrylic 15% polyester.) I think it would have gone well with parachute pants. There is a zipper where that black stripe goes across. Wide enough to hold a pencil or two, I assume. Someone must have thought me scholarly.

All votes you send via the comments section will be for the removal of a contestant. Voted off contestants will be announced at the end of the commentary period. In the event of a tie or lack of commentary votes, I reserve the right to make a final decision (no, I haven't pre-selected a winner.)

I'm voting contestant #3 out of the closet.

Martin, this is not easy. It's a toss up between two and seven (Seoul, Korea) but I think I will have to go with seven.
Three was a close runner up but I have to go with my gut on this one.

(I was on the Larry Elder show again - did you hear me? Remind me NEVER to do that again...I felt like an ass!)

#3 and #5 are close, but my final answer will be #3.

This is a really cute idea. :)

I would have to say number 7. I don't know why, I just don't like it.

FYI - Myanmar is what used to be known as Burma.

Definitely #3!

Teri said...

I say you toss out 3 & 7 at the same time :)

Cathy said...

Toss out #7. It reminds me too much of that "80's" - "I wanna be Hammer" shirt. Yeah, I DEFINITELY could see that shirt going with parachute pants. And, being a girl, I thought those pants were awesome! So, that's my thoughts. This is a great idea. I'm glad I caught round one!

RT said...

Definitely 7. Uh huh. 2 and 3 are bad, but 7... Ugh.

Siete, sept, sieben, sju, il-gop, zeven.....hoping you get the idea. 7 has to go. 3 was a VERY close second and unless it improves greatly by the next performance, I don't see it lasting much longer.

Contestant #7 has been notified to pack itself and leave the premises. This was pretty close until the last few votes. It could be the zipper or just the fact that it just wasn't a well thought out garment.
