So many male models have made their mark on the underwear world, we decided to round up the top ten old school photos of vintage male models in underwear. Of course, no list would be complete without the man who made the biggest mark, ‘Marky’ Mark Wahlberg himself.
Scouring the archives for the best in vintage male model photos, we came across some real gems—some more long lost than others. We reached back to the 90s to bring back some iconic shots of other celebs like Mark, who were launched into stardom modeling their famous physiques. Mullets, classic g-strings, and high-rise briefs hiked up past the belly-button—it’s all here and more.
Check out our favorite vintage finds below, and let us know if you’ve got any tucked away for posterity!
