Last week, Styles caught you up on the underground trend of slutty Halloween costumes. This week, Bradley Melekian point us to the latest urban object of desire: men in uniform, specifically, delivery men in shorts.
Ask most women what a modern-day sex symbol looks like, and you are likely to be greeted with a description not of a brooding movie star, but a smiling cleanshaven man with a toned muscular frame, a brown uniform shirt and a year-round dedication to wearing shorts.
Ah yes, what women has not daydreamed about being swept off her feet, thrown in the back of a delivery van and then, you know, signing for a package. Fantasies about what brown can do for you is prevalent in popular culture - why, just five years ago, there was that episode of Sex and the City where Samantha got it on with the delivery boy.
This is all by design, of course - couriers encourage their drivers to stay in shape and offer incentives for working out, though they insist it's for productivity and injury prevention.
