Wow, this could be a Renaissance painting if it were not for the jeans. Great composition!

This is so interesting. This photo makes ancient Greek and Roman sculpture ‘real’ to me. Thanks Sartorialist!

I agree w/ Anonymous #1. :/

That is lovely. You have an excellent eye for composition. The light makes his skin look like velvet. Perfect.

So…what do you think? Is the “double waistband” a young man’s version of the pocket square?
July 16, 2006 at 5:33 am
oh, the beauty…
July 16, 2006 at 9:23 am
I’m so conflicted. The setting, the man, the photograph…all stunning.
The underpants. Not so much.
July 16, 2006 at 10:25 am
I think it’s lovely. Almost like you’ve come across a private moment that you were not meant to see…just beautiful.

i’m sick of seeing people’s underwear.
July 16, 2006 at 8:45 pm
Wow. Very summer redneck.

Very renaissance. The denim, waistband take away from the absolute throw back to euro sculpture but the waist down kinda ruins it while strangely acknowledging contemporary art, aka your photography; a bit of thumbs up thumbs down. The light, his back, etc says gorgeous, the jeans are a bit icky hustler model kid

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!

quintessentially hot! thats where blogging becomes an artform.
July 16, 2006 at 11:33 pm
great shot!! nice back, beautiful view – Oh and the gardens are nice too!
July 17, 2006 at 12:08 am
this doesn’t remind me of the renaissance at all…this is a total cadmus painting

Lovely picture, although I would like to see his face. He looks like a charming man.
July 17, 2006 at 2:43 am
No need to ask “boxers or briefs?” here. The five inches of evidence speak for themselves…
July 17, 2006 at 7:03 am
really love this picture!
July 18, 2006 at 1:22 am
The juxtaposition of classicism & ghetto youth? Come on, it’s thrilling!
July 23, 2006 at 12:00 am
It reminds me of the Paul P. drawings for Dior Homme. Hm…

Oh so lovely. the intesity of the calvin klein underwear and the fact that he looks like a piece of art in a meloncholy land makes me shudder

the white underpants just do it for me.
