Again, like Joanna, my crush turned to full on lust after watching Jordan change his shirt after arriving to work on his bike. Bayer and actor Paul James are certainly highlights, but the cast is full of talented scene stealers. Molly Shannon and Jennifer Lewis are fantastic and actor Matt Rogers is hilarious as Patricia's (Lewis) assistant. If you haven't checked it out yet, and enjoy Bayer's unique and hilarious comedy style, the show is just four episodes in with the fifth coming this weekend.
We're often at our most comfortable when wearing only one piece. I know when I'm home, and have it all to myself, the only thing that I wear is a pair of boxer briefs. For some it's a warm bathrobe or a comfy pair of sweat pants, but we all have our 'go-to' piece of clothing that wear far too often, and for far too long. There's no need to mix and match or color coordinate, the only real criteria, is how it feels on your skin.
Some of my favorite shoots focused on the male form incorporate just one main piece of clothing. It's purpose isn't to cover, or to actually be worn. It's role in part is to provide a visual contrast between material and skin. It's also serves as a creative tool for the model and often stimulated unique looks and poses.
Last month, I featured images of Travis from photographer Bob Burkhardt. (Archivally Assessed) In that first piece, I focused on images of Travis and his tight red t-shirt. I loved how Travis used the shirt to spotlight and frame his incredible physique and the many creative looks that Bob was able to capture with just the one piece of clothing.
For this series, the one piece of clothing a grey hoodie. Although the grey isn't as eye-catching as the red, the hoodie works the same magic by providing Travis with the perfect item to help draw attention, an the viewers eye, too specific parts of his beautiful body.
As visually appealing as the one-piece of clothing can be, it also serves as way to reveal. Although Travis is nude while utilizing the hoodie, without it...he's naked. Although the difference is subtle, and no more is actually shown, there's a difference in feel with and without just that one-piece of clothing.
