In honor of Mrs. Patmore’s guest appearance on the pod, we challenged you to select a “Downstairs at Downton XI.” The responses flowed in – a lot of Wilsheres, Baines’ and Flanagans. The winner is Jen Jabaily-Blackburn who gets a copy of EA Sports FIFA 14 and a Men In Blazers Blazer patch for her XI, of which she admits “I spent more time doing this than I’ll admit.”
We are going to spend the weekend fielding this team on FIFA’s FUT feature.
No nonsense. Sturdy. Brad Guzan = American English for “Beryl Patmore”.
Best all-round candidate. (Also an outstanding candidate for keys or bass in the Premier League band because he looks like literally every British rocksmith from the 90s.)
Thomas. He’s the Premier League’s Thomas.
Looks 100% upstairs at first glance, but I see Jimmy. Or the other guy I always think is Jimmy.
I think he knows a lot about scheming and hair maintenance. 100% O’Brien.
I can see him getting involved in a lot of madcap capers. Is there something haplessly William about him?
Frequently found talking back to figures of authority. There’s something Bransony going on here.
I saw this photo, and it just screamed “Future Molesley!”
I’m thinking together they combine to make a Mrs. Hughes?
Because when I see him, I know I am staring into the face of the uncanny offspring of Carson and Bates.
Pick an English Premier League XI packed with players who most look like they could work “Downstairs at Downton” and win a copy of EA Sports FIFA 14 (on which you will be able to recreate and play with that entire team thanks to their FUT Feature)
In honor of Mrs. Patmore jumping on this week’s pod pick your Jack Wilshere’s… Leighton Baineses…
email us at MENINBLAZERS AT GMAIL DOT COM winner also gets a MiB Blazer patch…
This is what Downton Abbey is like Jogo Bonito style.
The creativity of our GFOPs continues to astound. From the hundreds of entries we received for the Great Becker, Man Hair Swap, we’ve undertaken the impossible task of selecting our 10 favorites. But in the end there can be only one winner. And while we received dozens of Downton Abbey / Kyle Beckerman mashups, GFOP Chris Campbell’s Mista Ca’Son is a treasure to behold. The discerning eye will even notice the blazer patch. We’re indebted to Real Salt Lake for providing the signed prizes - a ping pong paddle, comb, and RSL jersey.
- 2nd Runner Up - Tony Meolaman: Joel Erkkinen
- 1st Runner Up - Winston Beckerman: Andrew Waldrip
- Grand Prize - Mista Ca’Son: Chris Campbell
Via GFOP @Scouse_eh. Lady Edith = Modric.
Men in Blazers proudly present Old Rog’s Downton Abbey–to–English Premier League Converter. Apologies, Chelsea fans.
Congratulations to Liverpool. We have always had a soft spot for Brendan Rogers. Partially because he is a fine manager. And partially because he looks like a young Carson from Downton Abbey.
GFOP @liam_dempsey asks, “Separated at birth?” It’s hard to argue otherwise.
Season three of Downton Abbey seems ages away, but thanks to these paper dolls from Vulture, you can concoct your own lurid plot lines in the interim. GFOP Griffin Durling writes:
Lady Mary Crawley finds herself with a new suitor: World War I flying ace Scott Parker, home from the front, replete with roses in hand. The Dowager Countess undoubtedly approves.
