Attention Seattle:

Seattle Metropolitan, University Book Store, and Project Runway guru Tim Gunn have teamed up to track down The Most Stylish Man in Seattle. Gunn, the chief creative director of Liz Claiborne Inc. and soon to be star of the Bravo network's Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, will be in Seattle to promote his new book, A Guide to Quality, Taste, & Style on May 6. (To get a signed copy, buy the book at University Book Store after its May 1 release or purchase a ticket-with-book combo.)

Do you know The Most Stylish Man in Seattle? To nominate your favorite male fashion plate (or yourself-why be shy?), please submit the following:

Two digital images showing of the contestant's best looks (jpeg format, no more than 2 MB total)

A brief statement (50 words or less) describing the contestant's personal style

The contestant's first and last name, age, phone number, and email


The most stylish and chic contestants will be invited to a preliminary judging round, conducted by Seattle Metropolitan lifestyle editor Laura Cassidy and three of Seattle's top fashion and design instructors, on April 26. Only 3 men will continue on to the May 6 big event with the Top Gunn so look sharp—and make it work!

Thanks Lynne!
