Thirty-one-year-old Baskit model Marvin Garcia opens up (not just his pants) to Underwear Expert. Sample exchange:
Underwear Expert: How did you first get involved with modeling for them?
Marvin Garcia: There was a charity event. Every year in San Diego for the kickoff pride party, the charity raises money and there was a fashion show. We were modeling and then Rich [Mackey], the photographer, saw both us liked, liked what he saw and picked us up.
UE: What is it like getting to join your boyfriend in a photo shoot?
MG: Well since I haven’t been modeling as much, I learn a lot from him. He’s kind of almost like that mentor that I never had. Whenever I’m say doing a solo shoot or he’s right next to me, he’s always there by my side to guide me. Modeling is boring to me. It never registered in my mind that I would model.
UE: What is the best experience you’ve had during a photo shoot, with Baskit or anyone else?
MG: I love art, anything that has to do with art, I will definitely jump on it. Nelson got me into it, I never thought that I was actually a model. For me it’s kind of like a challenge that I would definitely take on. Because I’d always think of that stigma, like ‘oh you have to be tall and big,’ but Nelson definitely broke me out of that hole got me out of that stigma.
