    Victor may have to compete with a couple of others for best CM dresser but for mastery of CM and SW&D he's clearly unequaled.

    Wow, you know even less about photography than I do...

    This turned out a little "robo-pose," but what can you do?

    While that's certainly likely, not all non-men's room photos done by a DSLR are done in exchange for cash. Of course, they may very well be professional, but the chances of this guy, regardless of how rich he is or isn't getting a dude to shoot him for a menswear forum is unlikely. I know lots of people who take fantastic pictures.

    Very "east coast" meets "surrey backyard."

    Not saying the pictures were paid for (Victor already said as much). Just saying that the person that took the photos in question is absolutely, without question, a professional photographer.

    How remarkably accurate. My barber is at Hastings & Nanaimo, so I was in that neck of the woods a good chunk of the day.

    Yes, the first is a little unatural. However, I think you should have led with the second pic. Or maybe its just me because I like it when it looks like people are having a good time which is why I might like those like @mossrockss and @upr_crust (off the top of my head)
    I also like the hat :)
    Edit: I do like the fit and the smile in all pictures which may not have seemed the case after I reread what I wrote

    This is probably a pointless nitpick, but the photographer could be a highly skilled and enthusiastic hobbyist with great gear.

    Whoever it is though, they have a great eye. The shots are all really dynamic, beautifully lit and framed, and like all good photography, the images tell a story.

    I NEED TO SEE VICTOR'S FINANCIAL RECORDS IMMEDIATELY

    I NEED TO KNOW WHETHER TO HATE HIM BECAUSE HE HAS MORE MONEY THAN ME, OR BECAUSE HE HAS LESS

    AND ALSO HE DRESSES TOO WELL

    AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS TOO GOOD

    COMPLIANCE IS MANDATORY

    Foxtooth, you push the boundaries.

    But you're also as funny as fuck.

    Anyway, I just gave Tira his 75th thumb, which is a pretty awe-inspiring response for WAYWRN.

    Victor has been cleaning up in the awesomeness stakes around here lately, but Tira is still the King of Steez.

    Was gonna like this until I saw the PS; it might just be the poor fold, though.

    From last night: a quick pic before heading out the door for Easter Vigil.
