Designer Don Aretino considered the concept of masculinity when styling his apparel in this exclusive editorial for 'F*cking Young!' More specifically, he took inspiration from Alan Dundes, an anthropologist at the University of California, Berkeley.

Reportedly, his 1987 academic paper, titled 'Into the End Zone for a Touchdown: A Psychoanalytic Consideration of American Football,' cynically tackles the overt masculism that's often associated with the sport. Keeping this in mind, Don Aretino employed the talents of photographer Ryan Tandya, stylist and director Tomas C. Toth, as well as hair and makeup artist Lavern Marquez.

The resulting images intermingle feminine and masculine elements, with models Niklas Schiller, Peer Liening-Ewert and Mike Pishek posing like dancers in stylish sports-inspired ensembles.
