Holy mother of pearl. So this GQ photoshoot with True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is actually bad for our blood pressure. Like, we didn’t even know eight-packs existed until Joe sweatily sauntered into our lives. (Related: It is REALLY hot in this room or we the only ones sporting a sweat mustache right now?) So the beauty of this shoot is that it’s summery and sensual, and Joe is verging on too-buff-for-fashion. Look at him in his adorbs green Perry Ellis sweater and messily-buttoned B.D. Baggies shirt. Like, if a dude turned up to work looking like this we’d be all, “Whew, THAT guy reeks of a hangover,” but with Joe it’s HOT. I mean, it might be his Coach manbag that’s doing it. Or perhaps we’re forgiving him because his biceps are basically busting his sweater open at the seams and if you listen quietly you can hear the fabric riiip. And without much ado, he transitions into swim gear and we completely lose it. That breezy, rolled up Giorgio Armani shirt with snugly-fit Loden Dager trunks? Guhhhhh. Cannot even type. We’re not gonna lie here, we’re almost AFRAID to see the rest of the photos for the fear of becoming completely brain dead/needing a shower.

Oh. Ok. This is drool-inducing. Like, his ab muscles are CASTING SHADOWS, PEOPLE. Oh, and apparently he’s wearing pants, but we can’t even care because we are taking our laundry out to quite literally USE his washboard stomach to thoroughly clean our clothes.

Joe has a sailing outfit, you guys! Of COURSE he’s wearing head-to-toe blue because it SCREAMS nautical. And once again, his clothes are a smidgen too tight, but we are SOOOOO not mad. In fact, we kind of love those Orlebar Brown swim trunks/shorts paired with his Ermenegildo Zegna sweater for the boat chills he is giving us. Also, his man-about-town Michael Bastian shirt and Nautica shorts is super cute for perusing the streets of Greece.

This may be where the NSFW part comes in. Those Sundek by Neil Barrett swim trunks are SOOO TIGHT. *blots forehead and neck with moist towelette* And all femininity that comes with a pink hoodie is SQUASHED by that fact that the sleeves are literally squeezing the manhood out his muscles for everyone to see. Oh, and there’s a nekkid lady in the pic, but who cares? In the next pic, this model has the right idea: TAKE HIS SHIRT OFF (although we actually like this N.I.C.E. Collective tank.) Annnnnnndddd we officially need a cold shower.
