Male models of the world, a gauntlet has been thrown down. The guy in this latest installment of Show Us Your Game Face, Dude! has already proven that he can maintain a visage as emotionally inscrutable as Half Dome even when wearing a terry cloth hat that would prompt Zeno of Citium into a fit of giggles.
Now, he's taking on — and handily defeating — what appears to be a suit of chainmail that can only hope to offer protection against barbarians with a bad sense of direction. Ladies and gentlemen, our first Game Face two-time winner!
This black tattoo toweling cap is one size fits all — if you're a Talosian. (Yes, we're really into original Trek.) It takes real talent to game-face from multiple angles while wearing a terry-cloth polo hat fit for a macrocephalic alien. Hats off to you, male model!
Today, we re-introduce what we expect will be a recurring feature at MB: Show Us Your Game Face, Dude!
The premise: Anyone model can master Blue Steel or Le Tigre while wearing a non-descript pair of wool trousers or a block stripe cashmere sweater. But it takes a real pro to look serious while wearing some of the get-ups that are an occupational hazard of being a model.
Here, our guy keeps it stony-faced despite wearing $500 puffysweatshirts shopping mall-airbrushed with cockatoos, tigers, French bulldogs, and fawns.
We love ssense.com. And we love Adidas. But when hack designer Jeremy Scott gets involved it turns into this. We can't decide if it's a Halloween costume, an outfit for the world's biggest Cincinnati Bengals fan, or pajamas for your super-gay five year-old nephew.
