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.
When I received a very sweet personal invite to the swimwear show by Naldo Montanez, I realized that after 22 years in NYC, I had never attended a fashion show, let alone one during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week...it was a must-go.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but when I arrived I had a front-row seat next to charming Eduardo Joy, the creative force behind Just Once, who designed all the headwear the models would be wearing.
His hats are slick, inventively visual takes on the standard baseball cap; the one he pulled off of his head for me to inspect was basically wearable art and felt like it could be worn successfully through a hurricane.
The show was impressive, and not only because I wanted to make babies with every model. Well, at least the ones with whom I could not physically make one.
If I had a waist, you couldn't keep me out of Naldo's retro-sexual briefs, which are chic and classic.
Because chic and classic can veer into boring if you're not careful, Naldo includes some eye-popping tops (don't say it) in bold colors as well as some pretty luxurious wraps.
Of course, Naldo had everyone's attention from the moment his show began, sending two hand-holding studs down the catwalk—gay never goes out of style.
After, the show was over so fast I didn't get to fulfill my fantasy of cornering models backstage for impromptu and revealing photo ops, but I did grab these two—two of the best!—in their street clothes on their way to whatever comes after a perfect afternoon:
Well, this has felt inevitable ever since word broke that Joan Rivers had gone without oxygen for an extended period of time after she stopped breathing during a routine throat procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy in New York City:
