A Hitchhiker’s Guide To Doing It In Your Underwear: Char DeFrancesco By Marco Ovando

We want to paint you a better hitchhiker story than the ones you’ve heard before. Take model Char DeFrancesco in this Underwear Expert exclusive by Marco Ovando, for example. Sure, he might be a little lost, but we suspect that’s just a part of the charm.

Sporting pairs from the likes of 2(X)IST, Marco Marco, and Baskit (just to name a few), Char’s rugged, masculine style matches the landscape he’s found himself in. There’s a particularly great shot of him in black C-IN2 H+A+R+D Hustle Briefs, framed by mountains and glaring at the camera. Another has Char’s tattooed chest out to the sky, the blues of the evening echoed in the blues in his Papi briefs. It’s clear that this is a man who isn’t afraid of anything, no matter where he is or what situation he’s in — and he’s wearing the essentials to prove it.

Marco Ovando takes full advantage of the lighting in the scene, playing with the various hues of underwear and environment to create a truly coherent story. This turns out to be one hitchhiker we wouldn’t mind picking up. He’s got great style, after all.

Bobby Hutcherson - "Enjoy The View" (Album Stream) on Blue Note Records

"NEA Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson makes his triumphant return to Blue Note Records, where the virtuoso vibraphonist started his career in the early ‘60s, with the superb album, Enjoy the View. The vibrant session is produced by Blue Note president Don Was and will be released on June 24 as a significant event in the label’s 75th anniversary yearlong celebration. Recorded by an all-star collective of saxophonist David Sanborn and organist Joey DeFrancesco, and featuring drummer Billy Hart, the Hutcherson-sparked group plays seven original compositions that range from cool, gentle grooves to fiery outbursts of exuberance. At heart, the album soars thanks to the divine musical alchemy among the performers—an assemblage of veteran artists who play at the top of their game." - Blue Note Records

“I’m happy to have a recording come out on Blue Note,” says the 73-year-old Hutcherson. “I’ve had a long-term association with the label. I’m thrilled to be back here.”
