Vote Early, Vote Often

— by on May 5th, 2010

Christopher Rucker, a 2009 Washington and Lee graduate who is an admissions counselor at W&L, describes himself this way: “I’m Button-Down collar, Four-in-Hand tie, regular button cuff, Slim cut, two button suit, Classic black toe cap shoes, Silver with Leather Strap Watch, iPhone, Mac, Mix and Match, Something Practical kind of guy.”

Actually, that probably isn’t the way Chris describes himself every day, but it is part of his profile on Esquire magazine’s website, where he is a semifinalist in the magazine’s “Best Dressed Real Man” contest.

You can help Chris in the competition by going to his profile and casting a vote for him. Click here for the link. You’ll see the vote button the black bar just below his name.

Chris’s fashion sense is on display in this blog, “Dapper Demeanor.” Have a look to see what Chris is recommending at Dapper Demeanor.

If Chris prevails in the Esquire competition, he will become the second W&L alum this year to make a mark with his fashion. You’ll recall that internationally renowned artist Cy Twombly, of the Class of 1953, was named earlier this year to Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed list.
