Flashback: Thierry Perez - Studies of Men in Gianni Versace, 1991

As far as I know, and believe me I've done the legwork, these studies by Perez aren't up anywhere online to see. Maybe there's a reason, and i'm breaking some sort of copyright, who knows…

Irregardless, it would be a shame for any fans of Thierry to never see his beefy Versace man, complete with lips you could sink into, unavoidably prominent nipples and a jawline that's so angular it could cut you.

You're welcome.
