I nearly always draw a blank when asked to describe this blog, but usually settle on ‘menswear-oriented’ as the most appropriate adjective. Still, due to my shoddy blog-naming I took great pride in several years ago on its inception, I’ve succeeded in attracting waves of readers hunting for something more ‘male model’, than ‘male style’.

And it’s not that I make a point of ignoring that aspect of men’s fashion i.e. editorials, composite cards, model interviews etc., it’s just that design (be it clothing or otherwise) has always been at the locus of my mind, so, naturally, and quite selfishly, that’s what you’re going to find here. Anyway, there are so many other blogs and mags that already do an incredible job: The Fashionisto (which – any fashion professional working in the men’s arena worth their salt will tell you – is an invaluable resource) and HERO (which gives unprecedented insight into the personalities beyond the buff surfaces).
Yet I’ve come across a little something that I’ve been meaning to blog since it arrived in my inbox. VMAN has decided to honour some of the top modelling agencies from the four corners of the world, with pretty awesome results. It’s like a men’s version of the British Vogue cover from Jan 2002 (the one adorned with Union Jack-wearing top Brit models), only better.
