His Basics: Round II

Our original Urban Gentleman His Basics Photo Contest was a big hit. So much so that other websites have been mimicking it. It’s popularity can certainly be attributed to that fact that, simply stated, its interesting to see what the basics or everyday essentials of a person are. And it’s particularly interesting to see the basics of gentlemen worldwide– the similarities and the differences. Round I was cool, you can see it here, and see the winners here. But for round II urban gents seemed to have upped the ante…. So look below, and tell us who you think  has the best basics?
