Ogling shirtless guys is even hotter when it’s subversive: That’s what we got an extra thrill from this 2012 Father’s Day gift guide depicting various male models who look like they’re wearing superhero costumes, when actually it’s paint applied right onto their naked bodies. It’s from New Man, a Christian men’s magazine—think Esquire meets the Promise Keepers—that has since folded.

Ostensibly the feature is spotlighting watches (no, really) but we’re interested in something completely different.
