Forget those perfect male models with their minimal body fat and flawless hair. J.Crew is here to show that real guys are what’s hot now, and we wholeheartedly agree. For their November catalog, 11 real men were chosen to model in “The Real Guy’s Style Guide.” It’s all thanks to one guy, hotelier Sean Macpherson, who complained about the cashmere. Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s senior vice president of women’s design, stepped in to help, and after noticing what a hottie he was, asked him to be our man candy. Joining Macpherson are ten other dudes, including musician Smitty, author Tom Folsom, designers Byron & Dexter and filmmaker Lee Daniels. They dish details about their lives in handwritten Q&As and model iconic J.Crew items. Go to the J.Crew site now to drool.
We also have to say, that’s some customer service department they’ve got there. [WWD]
