Model Showcase

A look into the lives of our Community Creatives

Hi I'm Max Ma, living in Brooklyn, NY.

What inspired you to venture into modeling?

"One of my friends is more into the modeling scene and has always been trying to get me to do it too. I finally started because it was a way to help out some friends with their business."

How would you describe your modeling style?

"I'd say I'm just the Asian "Average Joe." I normally only model for causes I believe in or for side projects to help my friends."

What do you hope people get out of your modeling photos?

"My main hope is that I compliment the piece or item that I'm modeling well. If people are noticing me over the product, then I'm probably doing it wrong.As for the message and emotion, I'm trying to convey? That anyone can model too, they just need to be confident and put themselves out there."

As an Asian model, what does a good fitting shirt mean to you?

"It means that I don't have to have bobby pins or custom alterations all the time just to get a shirt that fits me properly.Your clothes are your primary social armor and a reflection on how you care for yourself. If you feel good, then you'll have more confidence and people notice."

What is your full-time gig? Any side hustles?

"I'm an Enterprise Software Sales rep in NYC so looking good and feeling confident is important for all client meetings."

Favorite song at the moment?

"Jubel - Dancing in the Moonlight."

Your go-to outfit?

"Dark Jeans + linen shirt."

Favorite Nimble Made dress shirt?

"Mine! The Plum."

Best menswear accessory you can't live without?
