Throwback Thursday – Favorite UnderGear Models
UnderGear’s time is numbered, from what I gather from my sources. Their social media accounts haven’t been updated since June. As I said in my UnderGear post, it’s sad to see this icon go. There is one thing I know many of you out there will miss. The UnderGear models. They were the first company that I remember people going “Who is that model?”
When they found a great model they usually stuck with them for a few shoots. So there are plenty of pictures on the net of your favorite. I wanted to do a “Where are they now?” post but I was having trouble track down the models. If anyone out there knows one of these guys, let us know we would love to interview one or two!
Christopher Fawcett – Christopher was one model they used a lot in UnderGear. He did both underwear and clothing shoots. On top of that he was in one of their runway shows at a bar in NYC. He has the boy next door looks that made him popular.He was one of my favorites I will admit.
Will Grant – Will is a BMX biker and bodybuilder/fitness competitor. He posed for UnderGear for a swim and underwear campaign. I wish they would have used him more than that shoot! He has gone on to do some more modeling right after UnderGear but lately he’s not modeled any underwear.
Thierry Pepin – Thierry is no stranger to the world of underwear modeling. You probably have seen him do a few of the Gregg Homme campaigns. His tattoos make him pretty memorable. At the end of UnderGear he was often used for all the UnderGear brands.
Radoslav Vanko – Radoslav is one model I found that had no social presence. I don’t know much about him other than some of the swimwear campaigns they featured him in. I also didn’t find where he modeled for other brands after UnderGear.
Adam Ayash – Adam was another model they used quite a bit. He graced the pages of the catalog in both swimwear and underwear. He’s still modeling and embraces his UnderGear past. His Instagram feed has a few #tbt featuring past UnderGear pictures.
James Guardino – James is another one of those guys, you know his face but may not have known his name. James appeared the most when I searched for UnderGear pictures. He’s still modeling in the world of underwear and you will see him with other brands.
Devon Spence – Devon wasn’t one that was too big on the site. He was one of the non-white models they used. UnderGear was never shy to use models from all races. We are glad they included him as a model.
Paul Marron – Is another one like James. He was a staple for a time in the UnderGear catalogue. He appeared regularly in swimwear and underwear. Paul is one that really sticks out when I think of UnderGear.
Joe LoCicero – Joe is one who was at the end of the UnderGear run. He’s been seen by other brands on the market. He’s still working and looks amazing in underwear. I hope we get to see a lot more from him.
They also had two celebrity models.
Philip Fusco – Philip worked with them for a shoot on a roof top. It was one of the editorial campaigns they shot back in the day. Philip continues to work in the world of underwear and has his own line called #philcity.
Scott Herman – This reality start of Real World Brooklyn turned to the world of Fitness. Back in 2008 he did a few pictures for UnderGear. He did some other underwear back in the day including Baskit. In the recent years I haven’t seen him do much for specific brands. He’s now focusing on the fitness industry.
These are only a handful of the models they used over the last few years. Over the history they had tons of great guys who modeled for them. We need to find a new catalogue to have amazing guys model underwear!
