Joy! Finally something to rescue me from wallowing in the depths of cover despair. Granted we’re not presented with anything earth-shattering here but it does make for a respite from the so mind-numbingly boring exteriors of Men’s Vogue[will I ever cease giving them a tough time? Probably not…]

Andres looks impressive to say the least and whoever was on hair managed to effectively maintain the appropriate body-hair-to-skin ratio which of course is a must for any self-respecting modern male, or so we’re told.

The monochrome is perfectly offset by the apt ‘luxe’ of pitch black and gold and sparse lettering-an utter rarity-is always a plus.

    yes much less boring – the magic happens in, as you say, the maintenance of the hair to skin ratio.

    xs: I’m currently hankering after a subscription to the mag. Possibly for Christmas as I’m ghastly restricted budget-wise. I’m afraid I haven’t seen Andres in Arena Homme +..will check it out though.Thanks for visiting.DCB.
