An Epic Hunk of the Day: Philip Fusco

phil fusco 001

After being unblissfully unaware of Philip Fusco, this blog has certainly made up for it in the last week, culminating with today’s official crowning of Mr. Fusco as Hunk of the Day. Earlier, you got to see his very first pictorial here, and a couple of days later he was the face (and more notably the body) of a weekly recap. Based on the reactions, he may be the next David Beckham or Tom Daley of these parts, with his very own Category. (Lest anyone think we’re going overboard too soon, he’s nowhere near Madonna territory, so relax.) As for this post, here’s to the first of the Fusco Hunk features – there likely will be more.

Hunk of the Day: Lance Parker – Once Bitten, Twice Guy

Lance Parker 1

The title of this post refers to the fact that this marks Lance Parker’s second appearance as Hunk of the Day. That’s a rare honor, but Mr. Parker appears worthy of the second coronation. Those tan lines are worth a second look too. (I credit Tom Ford and Paul Richmond equally for my love of a good tan line.)

A Gratuitous Philip Fusco Pictorial

philip fusco 100

Perhaps he should have been crowned Hunk of the Day (as he hasn’t yet been so honored) but for now this is just an introductory post to Philip Fusco, because sometimes things have to be earned (or at least timed to promote a project of Mr. Fusco’s choosing should he deign to reach out to me.) I think that on a lazy October Saturday, this should be more than ample homage to Fusco, and to his back and front.

Jury’s out on which is his finest asset. Your thoughts? Opinions? Requests? We’re open to all. (And though Victoria Beckham has compared her husband’s appendage to an exhaust pipe, Mr. Fusco may be giving Mr. Beckham a run for his plumbing.)

Underwear by Calvin Klein

ck underwear 100

Long before David Beckham took off his trousers for H&M, before Cristiano Ronaldo disrobed for Armani, before Ben Cohen stood up in his briefs, there was only one underwear giant in the game: Calvin Klein. The male model who happened to be fronting the brand became a celebrity solely through this Calvinization. When you got Kleined, you got it all. (See Marky Mark’s transformation into Mark Wahlberg.) Here’s a look at some of the notable names who have filled out the bulges of Mr. Klein’s briefs.

In the beginning was Marky Mark himself, whose 90′s ads with Kate Moss set the tone for the decade. Raw, minimalist, moody, and brooding, these were a far cry from the original bright blue sky background of Mr. Klein’s early underwear ads. As such, they struck an iconic chord, one which reverberates to this day.

Antonio Sabato, Jr. brought back the smile, and the sexiness, but never quite moved beyond the modeling gig to anything substantial. Still, his body of work endures.

Travis Fimmel and his long haired grungy looks closed out the decade in fine form, even if he wasn’t quite my type. There’s someone for everyone.

Freddie Ljungberg, a Swedish footballer, brought some sport back to the underwear game, a precursor for the David Beckham craze to come.

Jamie Dornan may be doffing any sort of underwear for his racy role in ’50 Shades of Grey’ but a few years ago he kept them on for a stint as Calvin’s bulge boy.

Kellan Lutz filled those boxers briefs a short while ago, but by then Mr. Klein and his underwear line had become one of many. While Calvin Klein remains a potent force in the underwear world, new and fresher upstarts like Andrew Christian have stolen a bit of that thunder. It may take someone like Tom Brady to put Mr. Klein back on the map. But don’t count Klein out yet…

Even though he’s not officially a model yet, Nick Jonas made his first splash as an adult by flaunting his body in a pair of Calvins, harkening back to Mr. Wahlberg’s very first crotch-grab.

Hunk of the Day: David Terzian

David Terzian0

Sometimes you don’t have to do much to make a big impact.

Sometimes you don’t have to move mountains or change the world.

Sometimes you just have to stand still and look beautiful and the world changes for you.

Sometimes the Hunk of the Day, as in the case of David Terzian, can be a mirror for whatever you want or need to see. That’s the point of a male model, reflecting light and dark, joy and pain, pleasure and masochism - and all in such wondrous poses.

The audience is left to make its own decisions and judgments.” ~ Madonna

Hunk of the Day: Colin Brazeau

Colin Jerel Brazeau0

This is one special Hunk of the Day, not solely for purposes of beauty and physical attraction, but in education and well-roundedness. (He plays the viola – and quite well.) Colin Brazeau is a student working on his B.A. in Communication Studies with a certificate in Classical Viola Music Performance and a focus in French Language and Literature at Northwestern University. How many of us have done even one of those things? Even more impressive is his LinkedIn profile, in which his pursuits are expounded thusly:

His overall program of research focuses on the impact that the new wave of Online Social Media has had on adolescent social behavior. More specifically he examines the changes in levels of narcissism, co-dependency, and overall self-image with increased Social Networking Site usage.

Finally, someone who’s studying something with relevance to today’s world. I can’t wait to see what his research uncovers.

Hunk of the Day: Joross Gamboa

joross gamboa 1

I’d never heard the name ‘Joross’ before, so perhaps Filipino actor and model Joross Gamboa can put it on the map. (It sounds a bit like something out of a Superman film, but I digress.) As the Hunk of the Day, Mr. Gamboa represents all sorts of hunky good things, and for those who like a little armpit action the featured photo is for you. (Yes you, because we know all about your quirks and peccadilloes.)

Eye Candy Gandy

david candy 001

Male supermodel David Gandy has been featured here time and time again, and as long as he keeps up the underwear front he’ll be featured here in the future. There’s a comfort and a thrill in that, the perfect encapsulation for the spark of fall just around the corner. Previous postings include his initial crowning as Hunk of the Day, his naked ass (and a peek of more), looking dandy in the sand, this sexy work-out GIF, a gratuitous crotch shot, a relatively classy black-and-white bonus, and a bit of bush and backside in one. A few more appearances like this and he may make it into his own category, a la David Beckham or Tom Daley.

A Most-Requested Hunk: Alex Minsky

alex minsky 001

Believe it or not, the most requested guy who has appeared on this site is not David Beckham or Ben Cohen or even Tom Daley, it’s this gentleman right here: Alex Minsky. People continually ask when he will be the Hunk of the Day, but it turns out he’s already been given that honor long ago - not to mention this insanely erotic nude GIF. Of course, if he asks politely (or at all) he can have a second go-round at the title. As for Mr. Minsky, he recently made a cameo appearance (butt naked to boot) at Broadway Bares.

This is Hunk of the Day Robert Ballard, doing what male models do best. Mr. Ballard lights up the stills and the live-action frames with equal aplomb and sexy abandon.

Primping and posing in the golden hour…

Hunk of the Day: Christian Bok

Christian Bok 101

Today we drain the saturation because everyone looks better in black-and-white. Although, in Christian Bok’s case, he probably looks just as well in full-color. We should all be so versatile. Congrats to Mr. Bok on being named the Hunk of the Day.

Hunk of the Day: Bernardo Velasco

Bernardo Velasco000

Brazilians do it better, at least that what it seems like when presented with a gorgeous guy like Bernardo Velasco. This Hunk of the Day is a Brazilian model and actor, and you should have no problem getting lost in those dreamy eyes. It’s a perfectly lovely way to pass a late summer afternoon, and I don’t blame you in the least. I’ve amassed a larger-than-usual collection of photos this time – you may see why.

Double Hunk of the Day: Christian Arno Williams & Max Wefers

Christian Arno 10001

As the supporting players and ice-dumpers in Donatella Versace’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Christian Arno Williams and Max Wefers steal the show with nary a word exchanged between them. With gold ice like that around their necks and Versace underwear bands around their torsos, who needs words? In a rare Double Hunk of the Day, we offer two to double your pleasure. First up is Mr. Williams…

We’ll sandwich the video between the boys:

And now onto Mr. Wefers…

Hunk of the Day: Derek Richardson

When one has the beauty of a male model, words are often superfluous. Today, that’s a very good thing, as I just returned from a birthday weekend in New York and I’m spent. Taking up the mantle of attractiveness to see you through to tomorrow, here is Hunk of the Day Derek Richardson.

Hunk of the Day: Kerry Degman

kerry degman 100

While he’s apparently a country singer (whose favorite musical genres are “Country” and “Western”) I couldn’t make it past his modeling career to listen to any of the twang. This is Kerry Degman, the Hunk of the Day who started off as a model before moving into the country crooner field. Sigh… I suppose if anyone’s going to get me to listen to country music, it would have to be someone as pretty as Mr. Degman. Or Dolly Parton. I don’t see any other way.
