I'm skinny, I have decent abs but thats about it. I'm proud to say I dont have alot of fat on me, though I still am dangerously underweight.

to be quite honest, to be a male model is probhably the least glamorous job in the fashion world..
unlike girls who are driven around, paid well and often get their own appartments after a year or so, guys have to use public transport like the metro, they dont make much money and usually only break even.

i think you could compare being a male model to being a male escort in a way. they are generally treated as 'sexual' objects by photographers and designers. to be a great male model i think the guy has to be very open and not take himself too seriously but know where to draw the line because of corse, all the gays are going to want a piece and generally male models are straight.

there are exceptions to what ive just said for example guys like mathias L who is so elegant and beautiful that he works non stop in high fashion, but for the majority, its all panties and ***

Two words: Ian Somerhalder.

I don't care if I could probably kick his ***, he is incredibly wonderfully gorgeous.

Hi guys, dont know if this thread is still alive, but i saw little duck's post and i've always wanted to ask the same questions.
I live in australia, so prob a bit harder to brake into the modeling, i'm 183cm and weigh 81kg, been hitting the gym hard 2 years, up from 67kg, i got a 110cm chest, 81cm waist, but the abs aint out yet coz i still got fat covering it to help my training, should be able to get the waist down to a 79. Abs are a nice large size (sitting under the gut) and i should be able to get them out in 1-2 months.
I got wide shoulders, big chest, nice V shape, fairly square chiseled jaw, nose is a bit fat and i've had the shortly trimmed bear going for years since i saw the picture of will chalker lying on a couch with the scotch + cigarette (what a gun).
And someone said something about wanting guys with brains, well i got a 93 in my year 12 and study engineering.
If anyone knows a thing or two, i can send some pics, give me a verdict, i'd rather not post pics on a forum.

Thanks

-Preferably over 5'11 (but Travis Fimmel and Oliver Cheshire are shorter)

-A strong look (be it a strong soft look, like Boyd Holbrook or Jarod Branch, or a strong masculine look, like Marios Lekkas as Tyson Ballou)

- Be sexy... while todays female models are on the wierd looking side, male models always seem to be conventionally good looking guys

true
i dont know much about male models..not like i know alot about female models...but i think what you said made sense.
but i think to get your pictures taken...it would be all worth a while when they are 70 or 80 years old...remembering the good ol' days when they had an *** and some packs.

^Yes, I've heard males can model well into their 30s. Whereas female models are considered "old" by the time they turn 25.

Personally, I prefer the skinny look on male models instead of the muscular look.

^ And a lot less respect and noteriety... even though she isn't Angelina Jolie, Gemma Ward is bound to have a few people stop her if she's walking down the street in New York. I doubt that Boyd Holbrook or Jeremy Dufour have the same problem.
