Help Charlie Pick a New Winter Coat, via

A certain someone has convinced me that I need some more outside input into my fashion choices... perhaps a bit more flexibility.

She made a convincing argument.

So, I'm opening up the selection process to all of you, starting with my winter coat.  I will buy and wear a winter coat solely selected by my blog audience.

Here's the deal:

  1. To submit a coat for group voting, tag it in with the "coatidol" tag.  (No quotes, obviously.)  Only coats tagged in qualify, so if you want to be a part of this, learn how to use by clicking here.
  2. Submissions will end in one week on Tuesday, October 25th at 5PM.
  3. At that point, we will do a two day vote ending on Thursday, October 27th at 5PM.  Every coat and its picture will be displayed for voting and voting will be anonymous.
  4. No coat over $350 will be considered.
  5. Remember, this is a winter coat...  so ideally it would keep me warm.
  6. You're free to select any colors, but I think its obvious what colors I like.  (See my living room, my car, my blog)
  7. The community will police itself.  Tagged coats will appear at as soon as people start tagging.  If you see a coat that's an obvious attempt at getting me to wear something stupid, just tag it coatidolsucks.  No coat tagged coatidolsucks by anyone will be considered.
