PHOTOS: Box Menswear cranked up the heat in Thailand, and that’s saying something

Thailand’s climate gets notoriously hot and humid, but nothing could have prepared us for the omnipresent steam we encountered coming off the Box Menswear lads as they galavanted around Koh Samui, a stunning island off the country’s southeast coast.

Some of the most-followed models around, including Jack Fowler, Rhys Sachett, Max Wyatt, Fabian Arnold, Dean Young, and Dom Blan, converged upon a stunning hilltop villa to slip into–and out of–the latest underwear and swimwear lines from Box.

Of course, when in Thailand, it’d be foolish not to wash an elephant or two at a sanctuary (aka humane elephant encounters–don’t ride them, people), frequent some of the countless incredible beaches, and take in the coastline by boat. They managed to do all that and more while still staying camera-ready. Work.

The guys took so many incredible shots with photographers Jake O’Donnell (@jake_od) and Carlos Trey Salazar (@treysphotostudio), we collected our favorites for a special edition of Instastuds.

Enjoy…

The most beautiful creature on the planet? Even when visiting elephant sanctuaries however, my heart still sinks when I see them not able to be out in the wild. Often elephants have been rescued from poachers, or from farmers who literally put hand grenades in their crop to stop them grazing. So there is a large debate as to whether they should be looked after in these sanctuaries or not. The pro being that they are safe, and the con being they are not 'free' strictly speaking. This was part of a group trip and in all honesty, if I was travelling off my own accord….I don't think I would visit a sanctuary. My advice for anyone travelling and wanting to see elephants is to find them in the wild! That is the BEST feeling ever. Either through a safari or just on road trips. What do you think? ?
