Let's be honest, it's not the jeans it's the fact that he's a handsome charismatic guy. That goes a **long** way

I honestly can't understand how those dumb Italian designers didn't realize him being a fake: first of all, it's "Giorgio" (common Italian name) not "Georgio", secondly...Peviani sounds like an Italian wannabe invented name, I don't understand how any Italian could believe that.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16AfXwI2WGQ These guys did it as a model with literal junk and weird clearance clothes. 100X funnier watching how ridiculous it is, though.

TheBarbieViolet (1 month ago)
He faked it because he fucking thought it through and got courage to do it and has a way with people, not because he looks somehow stylish. And even if so, he MADE himself stylish, so, again, cheers to that

Just shows how brainless most of these "fashion" (if you can call it that) bloggers are. I think I could sell them a bag of dog shit and they wouldn't question it.
