Then we saw it with our own eyes: dozens upon dozens of guys caught on Instagram, walking around in the exact same gingham shirt.
So you didn’t make it to Milan for the Salone del Mobile this year…
Neither did we—but thanks to the magic of the Internet we were able to get in on the action and take a peek at the coolest new chairs, chandeliers and other outlandishly good-looking design being unveiled this year.
The dust has just settled on Baselworld 2014—where half a world away, watch buyers, collectors and editors feasted their eyes, and wrists, on the new timepieces that will be hitting the market this year.
But the real action wasn’t in Switzerland, or on the blogs. It was all happening in real time, on Instagram. So we culled the list of horologically minded folk who made the transatlantic voyage, and compiled their various expertly filtered snapshots to get a good look at what could be on your wrist later this year.
Every Wednesday, we’re giving you a deeper look into what makes the minds behind Kempt tick. We call it: The Kempt Five.
A lot has changed since we last declared the seven sexiest Instagram feeds.
Things have gotten even sexier. (Mostly thanks to the addition of the Amaro filter.)
Which reminded us that it’s high time we rounded up all the new-on-the-scene models, actresses and semiprofessional bikini wearers who have been Instagramming their way right into our hearts. So without further ado, we present:
We know you’ve felt it—but probably couldn’t quite put your finger on why the state of social media has been feeling increasingly handsome recently.
We’d hazard a guess that it happened right about when Kempt joined Twitter.
And then again when the factory of expertly filtered dapperness and lifestyle-y-ness popped up in the form of UrbanDaddy’s Instagram. (Our friend Jack here does a pretty good job of encapsulating both.) If you haven’t already hit “follow” on both feeds, we’d advise you to do it immediately. It’s all right, we’ll wait. Go on. Okay, good. You’ll thank us later.
