Following up our recent post “real men in underwear ads” we are very happy to show you some pictures from our reader Marc Delavigne from France. Marc was very kind to send us some amateur shots of himself posing in underwear by Andrew Christian, Garcon Model and Petit-Q and kick start a series (we hope) of posts on our blog showing to a wider public that real men have a place in the industry’s campaigns.
This was Marc’s comment on our question whether we should see more real men in underwear adverts:
Yes, I fully agree. As a potential buyer I can much better identify myself with a fit but still “normal” looking guy, one that I might run across in real life. Seeing such pictures gives a better idea about how I would look in the advertised underwear. It is also a source of inspiration for staying in shape. Professional models are just hopelessly out of reach.
And here are some of my pictures in GarconModel, Andrew Christian and Petit-Q, not really selfies, but amateur shots taken with a simple compact camera.
