This editorial by Gonzalo Lauda of model Lucho Jacob for Biloni June 2010 is exactly the kind of menswear shoot I love to see. Half of the four-image shoot shows Jacob in a well-tailored suit and tie; like a gentleman from a bygone era, he's also outfitted by stylist Juana Santillan with a belted fedora.
In the other half of the Biloni June 2010 editorial, however, Gonzalo Lauda captures Lucho Jacob in a far more casual manner--let's call it French countryside chic. With a scarf, lean button-down, trousers and a jacket, Jacob epitomizes the image of a well-dressed gentleman.
