Being a model must be like being a criminal lawyer: you shouldn't think too hard about what you wear in the first case, who you defend in the other.

My mate’s stepson is the most geeky, socially awkward, snaggle toothed, pasty faced, long streak of piss you can imagine. Left school last year, zero qualifications, experience, ambition or drive. Sleeps in till the afternoon and plays video games all night. The lad’s Mam (my mate’s wife) does some work setting up photo shoots so has some contacts. She got some pics of him and passed them round, next thing he’s all expenses paid to go to Paris fashion week. He earns 10, 20, 30 grand modelling here and there in Europe then comes home and sleeps all day. My mate, who is struggling for work since Covid, is at his wits end trying to motivate the lazy shit but his wife won’t allow any criticism and of course the lad doesn’t contribute to the housekeeping. I told my missus the lad was earning sacks of cash as a model and she laughed out loud. “Who TF wants to see pictures of HIM?”What’s crazy to me is this dude woke up one morning and said he wants to pursue modeling or someone actually told him he should be a model. Good for him I guess. He’s in GQ and not me.
I’m pinning all my modelling aspirations on my little girl. Luckily she takes after the missus.In high school, I was with my then-GF and her mom having lunch in an upscale-type of outdoor mall - it dubs itself as a "open-air regional lifestyle shopping center," whatever that means. We were approached by an A&F employee, who offered me and my then-GF's mom a job at A&F - but did not offer a job to my then-GF - who then cried. This says more about how her mom looked than her, but still.
Look up Taos Noir 2, Noir 3, Noir 4 etcI only got into JMM literally a few weeks ago. It sounds like he has tried and true frames such as the Dealan and likely a bunch others. If something is released in limited numbers like 400 in noir and Havana, do those same colors get re-released in subsequent seasons/ years or is he always doing some variation in color and combos with lenses so they aren’t the same? Or are there “basics” like noir or Havana you see year after year?
