The consensus about yesterday’s Evandro Soldati video for W by Santiago Sierra was a collective sproing! that tickled our Facebook Wall and caressed our Twitter mentions. Such is the captivating power of the 6’2″ (188 cm) Brazilian that he returns to this page for a print encore in the form of a Details August 2011 editorial by photographer Robbie Fimmano. Titled “The Change-Up,” the Benjamin Sturgill-styled story adopts a familiar didactic tone that is germane to men’s magazines of this sort. “Ten ways to tweak your wardrobe for a look that sets you apart this fall” announces the feature’s opening page. To that end, bold stripes, graphic sweatshirts, wide trousers, etc and so on are presented as wardrobe suggestions to what surely is a predominately straight male readership. The lesson could not be better delivered than by Evandro who for his third look wears a Burberry Prorsum sweater, Hermès T-shirt, Dior Homme wide trousers, Marc Jacobs belt, and Dries Van Noten shoes. To be sure these are looks for autumn and as such are a far cry from the cruel summer nothings of yesterday, but in both cases it is Evandro Soldati who drives home the message that makes our audience go sproing!

With all due respect to that crooning lad from Ontario, his fans don’t have anything on those of Ford Men’s Francisco Lachowski. Such is the baying excitement that no sooner than I make mention of our agency address at 291 Geary St, is our Twitter flooded with a dozen inquiries about the 6’2″ (188 cm) boy from Brazil. Is he in town? Does he like his fans? What’s his girl’s na–People, that was San Francisco, relax! Despite Chico being a couple miracles shy of canonization, Francisco’s fans are undiminished in their support or number of fuckyeah reblogs. I suppose this fanaticism isn’t without good reason especially considering Francisco’s latest editorial feature in Ten Men Spring / Summer 2011 by photographer Marcelo Krasilcic and fashion editor Benjamin Sturgill. Appropriately titled “Francisco,” the story romps through ten Spring / Summer looks starting with a neutral shirt by Dior Homme, boiler suit by Kenzo, and those now ubiquitous shoes by Prada (stylist note: too much of a good thing, etc and so on). Notwithstanding a demonstrable inability to cure leprosy, Francisco still does no wrong for the shoot even when he is made to wear that tan shirt and skort by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. He is practically walking on water wearing the day-glow jacket, jumper, and trousers by Jil Sander. But, before this post devolves into the sort of hagiography practiced on the interweb by his ardent supporters, I would like to remind readers that Francisco after all is, whisper it, mortal…albeit with some saintly swag.
