Male Fitness and Physique Models: Dominic Calvani

A post shared by Dominic Calvani (@dom.calvani) on

Model Dominic (Dom) Calvani by Photographer Guilherme Licurgo.

Introduction

While researching for clothing and brands in the men’s fashion niche, it is impossible to ignore the models that the brands select to wear their items in promotional materials. The male models that are featured in the campaigns tend to have fit and muscular physiques usually with prominent abdominal muscles.

Comment: In doing part-time social media work for Box Menswear, I have seen a blog post on the use of muscular models rather than guys that look like most men do. Box Menswear’s owner, Luke Mills, has featured all physique types for his brand. However, the guys that model for paid work tend to have a muscular physique.

Nevertheless, as I go about my social media work for Box Menswear as well as my own blog, I do look for average-physique guys that seek to promote their images for brands. If a reader knows of models like this, please leave a comment or send an email to info at menswearnews.com.

Male Model Discovery: Dominic (Dom) Calvani

One model that I discovered through Instagram is Dominic (Dom) Calvani. Dom did a photoshoot with Photographer Jade Young (see photo below), who has photographed several male models for Box Menswear. Dom has a strong, masculine look and muscular physique. I was interested in finding out more about Dom as well as his background.

Dominic’s Social Media

Dom’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dom.calvani/

Dominic’s Background

Based on Dom’s Instagram page, Dom is an athlete, a model, an engineer, and a big daddy who is from Brazil. According to a 2018 blog post at All American Guys, Dom was 30 years old (birthdate April 15 (Aries)). At the time of this post in January 2020, Dom would be 31 or 32. Perhaps this is the reason for the “big daddy” reference on his Instagram bio.

I was interested to find out some more information, so I searched on Dom’s name in Google to see what search results I would get. I found a 2018 interview with Wire Magazine through Men and Underwear blog.

Dominic’s Interview with Wire Magazine

In an interview with Wire Magazine by Rafa Carvajal, Dom explained that he had an athletic background in mixed martial arts (MMA), specifically in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Dom had to leave MMA due to suffering serious injuries.

Dom, when asked by Rafa Carvajal to describe himself in three words responded “eccentric, unconventional, and dominant.”

Dom also told Wire that his family has roots in Calabria, Italy. However, he grew up in Brazil and lives in the United States. For work, Dom is involved in software engineering, supply-chain management, and real estate investing. On the side, he poses for photoshoots and dances.

Conclusion

Rather than just a body to model products, male models have great background stories as people. Dom Calvani is one example of this. I found out about Dom through one of his modeling photoshoots.

Dom, with his photographers, creates stunning images. Dom also has a great life story. I wish him well in all parts of his life.

5 Leggings, 2 Track Pants Men Will Love

Men’s Leggings, Joggers, and Track Pants: A Review of the Popular Slim-Fit Clothing

Introduction: General Men’s Fashion Observation

The blog post will provide you with information as you consider leggings, joggers, or track pants to your wardrobe. I will provide a description of each style, describe where guys have been wearing the clothes, and then I will provide a short review of the 5 brands I found while doing research for examples for this blog post.

In viewing social media pages, I see many of the influencers rocking their street style and gym wear with leggings. In my research, I even found that leggings and tailored sweatpants style have reached the office-dress level, for example, the Mack Weldon Radius Pant.

In my informal observation of men’s fashion selections where I live, the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, the choice leans toward slim-fit pants for the office and slim-fit, tailored sweatpants/track pants. I think that the track pant slim-fit look is neater and more adaptable with the pocket.

I get full use of my pockets with traditional pants. I use them for my wallet, keys, notes. As a result, would tend not to favor leggings, which do not have pockets. Because of the slim-fit nature of the pants, I would be selective about the things I carried so that the nice lines would not be broken.

What are Men’s Leggings Called

You may have found this blog searching for men’s leggings. You have found the right spot. Men’s leggings, sometimes referred to as “meggings” or compression pants, have been popular. The leggings typically do not have pockets, making them have an athletic purpose and use.

Joggers and Track Pants

While men’s leggings typically do not have pockets, there is a version of slim-fit, body-hugging pants that do have pockets, the jogger or the track pant. These pants typically have a related top that can be worn with them.

One Athletic track pant, Firestone II

The brand has another slim-fitting, legging offering, the Firestone II pant, https://oneathletic.com/collections/sale/products/firestone-ii-pant-black?_pos=1&_sid=02cb747e2&_ss=r&variant=31260395929677. The brand places the pant in its gym joggers category. For the fabric composition, the website mentions “poly pant,” which may mean the pant is made from polyester, similar to the other leggings.

As the Firestone pant has pockets, it can be worn in and out of the gym. If you are interested there is a top that goes with the pant, the Firestone II hoodie.

Reebok Speedwick Knit track pants

Website:  https://www.reebok.com/us/speedwick-knit-track-pants/DY8036.html

Reebok has a track pant called the Speedwick Knit track pants. The track pants have pockets. The fabric composition is 100 percent polyester tricot. (If interested, see a blog post at Pinecrest Fabrics about tricot fabric. Essentially, the fabric is durable and can be worn daily.)

Box Menswear Performance Fitted Joggers

Website: https://www.boxmenswear.com/collections/loungewear/products/lightweight-performance-fitted-joggers-black

(Added 18-January-2020)

Box Menswear has a fitted jogger in black and stone. These joggers have pockets as well. The fabric composition is 100 percent polyester. The joggers appear to have a slim fit but there is a little more room than a body-hugging compression-style pants.

Tailored Sweatpants

While researching for this blog post, I found that there is another style of pant that is just about the joggers and track pants, the slim-fit sweatpants. I consider this more in the sweatpant category, so I did not cover them in this blog post. An example is the Vanquish Fitness Elevate tapered sweatpants. It appears to have been an exceptionally popular item, as it is available only in the extra-large size at the time this blog post was written (January 2020).

Jeans that Look like Track Pants

Rufskin Slick jeans

Another interesting option is slim-fitting, track-pant-like jeans. One example that I found is from Rufskin, the Slick stretch denim jeans. The fabric composition is 98 percent cotton and 2 percent Spandex. The appearance appears to be a leveled-up track pant. Like the track pants, the brand has a top that can fit with the jeans, the Trooper shirt.

Where are Men’s Leggings Worn

Leggings are athletic clothing, but men have been wearing them while doing other activities–resting at home, running errands, traveling, yoga, running, and even more-intimate moments. I will discuss men’s leggings for these purposes in the blog post below. (For legging-style pants with pockets, see the discussion of track pants above.)

Review of 5 Brands of Men’s Leggings

As there is a wide variety of activities that men can wear leggings, there are also several brands that have leggings for sale. I will review 5 below.

1 Kapow Meggings Originals

Website: https://kapowmeggings.com/collections/meggings

According to the product description for Kapow Meggings originals range, the brand’s leggings are designed to fit like a second skin. The leggings are designed with high stretch polyester and elastane. The leggings could be used for a number of activities: yoga, gym, festivals, running, accentuating one’s street style.

2 Box Menswear Total Comfort Lounge Leggings

Website:  https://us.boxmenswear.com/collections/nplbfcm69meshv1p/products/mens-grey-sport-leggings

[Note: While I do some part-time social media work for this company, the blog is my creation.]

The Box Menswear leggings appear to be designed more for athletic wear (no pockets), though some of the photos I have seen on social media, buyers are wearing them for lounge activity. Of course, you could pair them with shorts or under pants (with pockets) to wear running errands, and so on.

The product description states that the fabric composition of the brand’s leggings is 95 percent bamboo cotton and 5 percent Spandex.

Comment: The brand’s bed shorts, which I own, has a fabric composition of 100 percent bamboo cotton. The fabric is exceptionally soft and comfortable.

The Nike Pro leggings are available in a variety of colors.

5 One Athletic MTech run leggings

One Athletic’s Mtech run legging is another legging made for runners (no pockets). I could not find information about the leggings’ fabric composition on their website.

+1 6 Rise active dry compression pants

Since the first publication of this post, I have found additional leggings to add to the post.

According to the product description, the active dry compression pants are meant to have have a skin-tight fit to support weight lifting, running or other athletic activity.

The fabric composition is 55 percent Nylon, 38 percent polyester, and 7 percent Spandex.

Conclusion

I have found that the leggings and track pants categories to be fairly interesting. The slim-fit pants style has been popular and I was surprised to find a wide variety of styles available.

I am interested in learning about my readers’ likes and dislikes in leggings as well as men’s fashion generally.
