“His Basics” Photo Contest: Which is Your Favorite?

 |  Etc
About a week and a half ago we had post titled His Basics, where we asked you guys to send us pictures of the essentials of your everyday life. Just for the fun of it we want everyone to vote on their favorite “His Basics/Essentials” photo(we’ve narrowed the submissions down to 10, they include the most focused and a more diverse set of countries).*two entries were added.

Some of the photos are simple, while others are more involved. Each tells you a little about the person. So don’t only choose your favorite based upon their designer labels and country,  choose the one that showcase a distinct personality. Let’s peruse their essentials of cool
