To us Instagram is used for four things: fashion, food, travel, and stalking. And where stalking is involved, we gotta admit, boys are definitely included—especially when they’re oozing with style and substance. They say you learn a lot about a person through his IG page, so when a guy posts more than just his fave basketball player and gym selfies, and show his interests as well as a perfectly waxed ‘do, chiseled bod, and stylish shoes (their choice of shoes says a lot about them, too!) via an OOTD, you know he’s got our full attention. Below, meet eight of Manila’s new stylish set—guys who can make fashion girls fall hard.
Miko de los Reyes (stalk him @mikodlr)
Wearing Jazz Originals in gray/dark blue by Saucony Originals
“I don’t know how to describe my style actually, I’m not that preppy but I’m drawn to certain colors like blues, blacks, and whites. I like the clean and polished look.” Well, Miko, we like clean and polished, too. This 27 year-old fella is the type of guy every girl would like to take home to mom. He’s an architect with a killer smile, and cultured with a feed dominated with numerous travels posts. Who wouldn’t want to travel with this cutie, right?
David Licauco (stalk him @davidlicauco)
Wearing GOrun 4 in green/navy by Skechers
This chinito six-footer is an archer taking up Computer Applications at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. When it comes to his style, athleisure is the name of his game whether he’s at the gym or partying in BGC. Ladies, he’s also a certified Cosmo Hunk—and you know what that means, right? Abs. For. Days.
Jules Erik Fernandez (stalk him @fernandezjules)
Wearing the Burst - Deal Closer in black/blue by Skechers
He describes his personal style as that of an “old romantic guy” who’s classy, simple, and elegant. We don’t know if it’s his chiseled jawline, come hither stare, or sculpted six-pack that landed him a full-time modeling job, but we’ve definitely seen him walk the fashion week runway. He’s not all that though, because Jules is majoring in architecture at UST.
Mikko Marcelo (stalk him @mikkomarcelo)
Wearing Grid 9000 in gray/navy by Saucony Originals
Mikko is a Marketing Management student of Enderun College whose IG feed breathes ahrt. Did we mention he can do some mean modeling on the side? As in, he's been on editorials with the likes of Monika Sta. Maria and Kelsey Merritt. Trust us when we say this photo doesn't do him justice. And if you think his arm tattoos are cool, wait ‘til you see what he has on his chiseled chest.
Lharby Policarpio (stalk him @iamlarbs)
Wearing Rant in black slate by Merrell
Lharby is currently a GMA-artist and model who is a fan of the classy and neat look when it comes to dressing up. If you haven't heard of him yet, it's best you remember his name because this multi-talented cutie (he can host, act, model, and more) is one of the station’s rising stars.
Miggy Avancena (stalk him @miggyavancena)
Wearing Hamilton Driver 1-Eye in brown by Sperry
“I always like the clean look. I like looking neat, not so rugged. I got that from my dad, actually.” That’s exactly what we like best about Miggy. We don’t know a lot of guys with his built who can match it with style. If you think he looks good dressed, go check his Instagram where he posts his countless beach trips—shirtless, of course.
Seph Ejercito (stalk him @sephejercito)
Wearing A/O 2-Eye Core in amaretto by Sperry
Attitude and appeal clearly runs in Seph’s blood. And with his countless travels and good taste in clothes, we can already imagine the million things we can talk about. Definitely not a bore, he’s a guy we’re sure we’d love to hang out with.
Michael Anthony Tiong (stalk him @chaelanthony)
Wearing All Out Terra Turf in black by Merrell
How many guys do you know has style influenced by Japanese fashion? Very little if you ask us, which is why we zoomed in on this guy the moment we saw his print-on-print action on Instagram. Now that he has graduated from DLSU, we can’t wait to see his shift in career from part-time to full-time model.
