Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens

I had plans on this being a 2 week giveaway, but that seems a bit excessive since a good portion of you younger gents have prom in about 2-4 weeks. So let’s make this a one week thing- so it ends next Saturday, April 18th. 7 days to enter to win $100 Giftcard to Men’s Wearhouse. Winner will be announced Monday morning- you’ll have, hmmm… 48hrs to claim the prize, then after that I’m giving it to my little sisters prom date, naw I’m kiddin- I’ll give it to the next person, then the next… oh, and basically whoever has the best answer wins. I was just going to have about 5-9 fashion-forward associates choose their favorite, but I’m thinking it’ll be more fun if I (with the help of associates/friends) choose my favorite 3 answers. Then on Sunday or Monday I’ll post them and you all choose your favorite one- and by 12:01 whoever has the most votes wins. Am I doing too much, hmmmm, idk… but let’s just see how this goes.

The Men’s Wearhouse is not a sponsor or co-sponsor of any contest on this site involving gift cards. Please refer to reverse of gift card for terms and conditions of use.
