Numéro Homme is one of the few foreign language volumes biding its time on Magazine Mountain that provides an English translation of its articles at the end of the issue. Sure, the sixteen-page, two-color English section is printed on recycled paper stock rather than the glossy sort reserved for the sexier textes en français, but all the same this very French concession to internationalism is appreciated. Translations, however are only made of the features, not the editorials, which in their own way speak the heavily accented, universal (though not really) language of fashion. One editorial in particular from Numéro Homme 21 by Greg Kadel altogether smashes the barriers of language. Titled “Brothers” the Charles Varenne-styled story features Ford Men’s Jacob Dekat starring opposite of Kasia Struss (Women) and Jaco van den Hoven (VNY). Since joining Ford Men in January of this year, the Colombian-born photographer and DJ has been an instant hit. In fact, on his first day at the agency Jacob booked this story and has since picked up some major bookings that you will no doubt be reading about on this page in the coming months. Until then, enjoy Jacob’s debut story, which he below opens on the left wearing a leather jacket by John Richmond and knit sweater and sweatpants (pantalon de jogging) by Burberry Prorsum. Were there an actual translation of this story, then it would likely read instant success.
