After looking at thousands of pictures of young men for the past several weeks, we thought we’d throw out some of the faces that stood out to us from the men’s shows.

See our interview with the beautiful Frenchman!

Mr. Hybholt and Mr Linder had monster weeks racking 17 plus shows each.

Former MOTW’s to keep your eye on from the shows: Callum, Albert, Douglas Nietzke, Philipp Bierbaum, Isaac Carew

Some familiar faces who are not only looking better than ever, some had their best week ever: Bastiaan Ninaber, Gen Huismans, Gordie Walker, George Barnett, Guy Robinson.
