This is the latest in a series of posts by The Underwear Expert.
We want to paint you a better hitchhiker story than the ones you’ve heard before. Take model Char DeFrancesco in this Underwear Expert exclusive by Marco Ovando, for example. Sure, he might be a little lost, but we suspect that’s just a part of the charm.
Sporting pairs from the likes of 2(X)IST, Marco Marco, and Baskit (just to name a few), Char’s rugged, masculine style matches the landscape he’s found himself in. There’s a particularly great shot of him in black C-IN2 H+A+R+D Hustle Briefs, framed by mountains and glaring at the camera. Another has Char’s tattooed chest out to the sky, the blues of the evening echoed in the blues in his Papi briefs. It’s clear that this is a man who isn’t afraid of anything, no matter where he is or what situation he’s in—and he’s wearing the essentials to prove it.
Marco Ovando takes full advantage of the lighting in the scene, playing with the various hues of underwear and environment to create a truly coherent story. This turns out to be one hitchhiker we wouldn’t mind picking up. He’s got great style, after all.
