Shirt worn by Mateus Verdelho--model

A blog dedicated to the Brazilian model, Mateus Verdelho, posted this pick of him in a rather unusual shirt. It gives me a sailor vibe all 'round: worn with the white shorts; white and blue stripes; and the very interesting triangular cuts. I suppose the tats are quite sailor too.

Fuck Yeah Mateus Verdelho HERE
