    There are some cute new SS17 boys but that's it. I definitely miss the fashion period before 2010 when there were less guys and they actually had interesting facial features.

    OK i was exaggerating but only Kit, Finnlay and Rory Cooper did a number of shows.
    even last seasons "big" model Sol Goss didn't do that many

    I truly respect our members who work so hard these recent seasons updating models' threads. I just can't physically keep up the pace even I want to. The change is beyond anything, too soon, toooo much.

    The various fashion councils really need to build more hype around the men's shows. It's become static and dull, which is sad because there are some really good designers.

    Re models doing more than a few shows, I'd add Michael Gioia to the list. He only did four shows but he closed Les Hommes and DSquared2, opened Philipp Plein and walked Dolce & Gabbana. Pretty good - relatively speaking.

    What happened to Gryphon O'Shea and Matt Terry..?
    I really like Rhys Pickering (because of his YouTube videos), Maryan Lukaszczyk (because he can speak Mandarin), and Kit Butler (long neck and slightly narrow shoulders) right now.

    These 10 guys aren't even having a good career this year. Such a redundant topic.

    What a weird list. I love a lot of the guys mentioned but come on. :lol:

    Also how are you going to have a list of male "supermodels" and not mention Clement?

    Since when is what Vogue says even relevant anymore? Alessio a supermodel after just one year? come on. They praise people like Dallas too so i'm over it.

    The MDC list is accurate to an extent though.

    I think the list is also based on potential. I consider Alessio and Filip two of the newest stars at the moment, and both have at least 4 seasons (not 1 year) of high caliber work. Now Marlon could be labeled a New Super, but there are at least 3 guys here who have no business being here. I so wish mens modeling wasn't so fickle.

    Yeah that list was the new boys who have the potential. Honestly, i see everyone on that list becoming irrelevant in the next couple years, even seasons! Alessio and Filip have potential, but that's because the brands that use them are loyal.

    Male supermodel is such a stupid term. I mean how much do the guys that are considered "Supers" even work? Just because they score a campaign here or there after years of modelling, compared to females it's so embarassing. Mark Vanderloo and Tyson Beckford have been done since the 90s. People often talk about David Gandy, and really how often do you see him?

    I see it for Sean O, Mathias Lauridsen and Clement because they've been at it like a decade and still book top campaigns from different clients.

    I really wanted a lot of the french boys that hit big the past couple years to keep going like Arthur Gosse, Baptiste Radufe, Adrien Sahores but they've all been MIA recently. I feel sorry for male models.

    Models like Jon K and Marlon Tx stay relevant because of how much they socialise with people in the industry - that's smart, but both are so overrated.

    "Year" is a big word, with male models' career you have to count in "week."
    The most iconic case happens right now, Erik van Gils tapped that Roberto Cavalli campaign, but he's not as trending no more in this ss17 season. I could cry if that's the situation I have to deal with.

    Anton Toftgard and Dominik Sadoch hit homerun last two seasons. And now you can count their appearances combined almost just with both hands.
    Maybe you can say Dominik has a semi-exclusive with LV so that's not how it is, but hell who cares about exclusive anymore.
