When I did it, I was 6', 31, 165. I'd lose bookings to guys who were either 6'+, 32 - 34, and closer to 180 or 6'+, 30 - 32, and closer to 155, depending on the client.

what agency were you with?

brands like d&g, moschino, armani will go for bigger jockey muscley dudes...your dries and rafs will mostly go for dudes your size. I've seen plenty of guys smaller than you also. It just depends on the brand.

male models don't really get paid much money, especially in america. they mostly get paid in clothes on a per client basis. girls make far far more.

Hah, no room to expand, unless I cantilever a closet extension off the second floor of my house. The disconcerting part is that I have so much more clothes than my wife.

On a related note, one of my grails from a few years ago popped up on Ebay today biggrin.gif I think it's become apparent that I buy a certain set of clothes to be worn, and another set to be collected (and maybe worn) because I think they are interesting. I think it would help if I lived somewhere where anything more than a t shirt and jeans was socially acceptable.

I'm really looking forward to the future Miran post about his experiences in male modeling.

I thought it was common knowledge that Miran is Paul Boche

All my modeling experiences consisted of letting the stylist women dress and undress me... the female models pretended to eat food while chain smoking. It wasn't bad overall... a bit of cash, free clothes and a few phone numbers. nod[1].gif

Zorlac double cut, the original one with the shut up and skate guy on the front -- yellow with pink lemonade and lime green grip tape. foo.gif

It seems logical there would still be skateboard shops, though in my zip code it's been years, maybe decades.

I agree, all the Gator decks are like the best things ever! I managed to own a great blue and white one for like ten minutes as a kid, then I had to settle for the T-shirts (none of which I can find anymore).

Gator decks were awesome, the Natas decks were always my favorite growing up

 

 

 

 

Only owned a Lance Mountain. Gullwing trucks. Slimeball wheels. Practiced ollies all day until the sun went down. So rad.

Nice. Not sure where you live but obviously we have tons of skate shops in SoCal.

Sometimes you'll find t shirts in the weirdest places. I bought a repro of the old Bones Brigade BONES shirt with the rib cage coming through it that was always one of my fave shirts in either Taipei or Dubai I don't know which... but I remember thinking "what the hell is this doing here?!?"

i am a man. i am married to a woman, and she gave birth to my twins.

last february, i had an affair with a married woman who also happened to be my boss's wife. i quit my job, before things got out of hand.

i am unemployed since then. contract from home.

i have fallen in love with another man since last march. this man looks like a young alain delon, but not so aggressive, he is a softie with a big heart.

how do i determine:
1. if this man also loves me?
2. what to do about this? do i confess to him that i love him, regardless of his state-of-mind?

that LUC cardigan is one of the worst pieces they make but I think a lot of people bought them because they were cheaper than their other stuff. Weird neckline and the fit is off.. it's not that warm either. I'd try it on first if you don't know what you're getting into

Save up for the best LUC piece:
