This On the Town special is one of the best! Somehow a sailor costume feels like a perfect way to deal with the inherent cheesiness of the man's costume! Score: 8.9

Love the skirt, love the pocket square, points off for the bodice! Score: 6.3

A little tango, a little '20s, a lot fab? Score: 9.0

Classic Sonja Henie glam - and dig the cravat. Score: 8.2

This pink feels a bit less fresh than some of the other retro-toggery. Score: 7.6

I know it's sultry and tango and all that good stuff and that she's not always upside-down....but I think the gloves take this a little too Spider Woman. Score: 7.4

The jitterbug cheerleaders are cute, if a bit late-'90s. Score: 8.6

Oh, the bobbysoxers! I like how the guy's shirt evokes a '70s prom tux. Score: 8.8
