New Yorkers Get In Their Undies for Matthew Zink

A few months ago, Zink asked them to submit their selfies wearing his swimsuits, using the #Charliefan tag on Instagram. The designer then chose his favorite submissions, and invited the hottest men to model in his calendar. The result, as you may remember, was pretty steamy.
To top this off, last week Zink held the first #Charliefan casting call in New York City, with photographer Gregory Vaughan behind the lens. New York-based fans were encouraged to submit photos via social media to showcase their buldging... "talent."
These handsome strangers range in age, height, ancestry, and, obviously, amounts of body hair. They're pictured wearing designs from Charlie's current Resort 2014 Swimwear Collection, and pieces from his upcoming underwear collection.
This will be the first of many #Charliefan photoshoots. Zink hopes to celebrate beauty from around the globe —women and men, dancers and doctors, from the west coast to the east coast. Zink also wants to create a stand-alone feature for one model in each shoot, as he did with 25-year-old producer Barrett Pall from the New York City. We're looking forward to that!
