A Hard Day In The Office!

In search for our next male model….such a hard day in the office!

 

male_model_comp

 

 

Here at Joe Browns, we’ve never been big on models – really driven by our customers who know exactly what they like and what suits them – without the need for ‘’body perfect’ people dictating to them how to dress! (customers’ words, not ours!)

 

But there are times we need to show our clothes on real people, for example on the website to show how things fit – sleeve lengths, trouser fit, skirt lengths etc.

 

So, today, in search of our next male model, we had a line up of three male ‘finalists’ to see – who all incidentally got stuck on the M6 on the way across so we started well behind schedule.

 

The camera was good and ready to roll, manned by Rich our Creative Head and the ladies of the office were all making excuses to pass by the photography room on their way to the vending machine….reception to pick up a parcel…the carpark having forgotten something from the car….even the kitchen (which incidentally is at the opposite end of the building! ).

 

Model 1 arrives looking extremely dapper – even more so once sporting the Joe Browns famous Don Jacket and Waistcoat. A few flashes and it’s onto t-shirt and shorts. Nice legs, good arms and nice tanned skin (hmmm not a hard day at all really is it!) Good sense of humour too – always important when looking to avoid cheesy old fashioned catalogue shots!

 

Cue Model 2 –Shoots really well in the suit and casual wear then onto the swim trunks. (Absolutely necessary of course with brand new range of swimwear needing to be photographed for next summer.)

 

Then finally onto model 3 – looks great in the tee and shorts combo and has an amazing tanned six pack to boot. Jeans fit perfectly and he fills our tee’s brilliantly…
Oh decisions, decisions…..this is going to be a tough one – we’re going to be ages poring over these images. Watch this space to see who makes it to the final pick!

 

Why not tell us what your checklist would be if you had to choose!
