The Search is On – This time for the MEN!

Alphamale Model Search

Yelmer Pfeffer of Alphamale menswear vividly remembers the day back in 2007 when he finally rented a small shop and opened Alphamale menswear. When looking back on all that has happened and what he has accomplished he is pretty surprised. It is now time for the next step. Alphamale is going to launch new webpages for the 2009 season, and Yelmer is looking for “The Alphamale” model out there – someone that represents the image of the company!

We found our latest Blacklace Lingerie model last month and now it’s time to find the next Alphamale. Although Alphamale does not maintain a group of models, the winner of this contest will appear in the ad for the next release from Alphamale and will also appear in an advertising and promotional campaigns for Alphamale and will be featured on the Alphamale website which will be launched early next year. Prizes will be awarded each Sunday between now and January 4th. The final  winner will be chosen from the weekly winners and announced on January 10th. This contest will again reward both the model and the photographer. All photos must be submitted by 12 Midnight SLT on January 2nd and the winners will be announced at the Midnight Jazz Winter Formal on January 10th at 4 pm SLT. (you do not have to be present to win).

What constitutes “Alphamale”?
Alphamale is about tough, confident and masculine men. The kind that women might call a chauvinist, but still have a secret crush on. The designs are simple and not elaborate. Often mono-colored clothing without too many frills. The Alphamale can be as refined as he can be primal. Behind the stubbled beard, and dark shades, is a man with intellectual humor who is in control of his life. He is a mix of James bond and a greasemonkey. He can look dapper in a suit and hot in a leather jacket and some torn pants. Look in the store at the existing pictures and you might capture a gleam of the alphamale style. The alphamale does not have a lot of tattoos, cat ears, a tail or piercings. Alphamales have a weakness for cigarettes, shades and sexy women.
