Oh, I love Guy Trebay. His latest article for the New York Times was about the male modeling industry (something discussed VERY little!). It was a great read about how we are in a Recession, so we are looking for manly men. Just like in the women's modeling industry, there was the "jailbait" (or "twink" in gay terms) aesthetic for models. However, since we are in hard times, we are looking for the Brawny looking guy. I think it's great! Just like with women, I don't think only skinny people should model clothes or make them look good on the runway. I guess this is the men's version of "plus-sized"?
