Dirty Laundry Ken Wroy review 3 Hey friends! Are you familiar with the expression "dirty laundry"? It refers to certain information or secrets you don't want people to find out. People airing your dirty laundry is something that happens quite often nowadays and, frankly, it sucks. I believe we are entitled to certain secrecy, not everything needs to be exposed, and certainly, your secrets are yours to tell, otherwise they wouldn't be secrets at all.

Ever since high school, I started to hang out with more people (I was kind of socially awkward before) and that made me realize something: sometimes people want to air their dirty laundry. You have no idea how much information and secrets I was able to gather simply because people wanted to confide in me. That has followed me and it's funny how I have all this intel but I don't really want to talk about it. I don't like gossip and, again, their secrets are theirs to tell, that's not my job. 

When the guys from Ken Wroy, a really cool underwear brand from New York, approached me for this collaboration I said "Sure! Let's do it!" But I didn't quite realize at the time that I had to feature actual underwear, that's intimidating. I wanted to get creative for this photos; I wasn't just going to get semi-naked and show the boxer briefs, you know? I wanted a concept and this dirty laundry airing seemed like a cool idea, don't you think? The briefs, by the way, are extremely comfortable and adapt to your body without irritating the skin by pulling up. They're really cool; be sure to check Ken Wroy's website and order yourself a good ol' pair of undies. 

// ¡Hey amigos! ¿Están familiarizados con las expresiones sobre "ropa sucia"? Se refieren a cierta información o secretos que no quieres que la gente sepa. La gente que "saca su ropa sucia" es algo que pasa muy seguido en estos días y, honestamente, es terrible. Creo que tenemos derecho a guardar secretos, no todo tiene que estar expuesto, y definitivamente, nosotros deberíamos decidir cuándo y cómo contar nuestros secretos; de otra forma, no son realmente secretos.

Desde preparatoria, comencé a juntarme con más personas (era un poco anti-social antes) y eso hizo que me diera cuenta de algo: a veces la gente ventila su ropa sucia. No tienen idea de cuánta información y secretos pude reunir sólo porque la gente quería contarme sus cosas. Eso me ha seguido y es chistoso cómo tengo todos estos datos pero realmente no quiero hacer algo con ellos. No me gusta el chisme y, de nuevo, sus secretos son suyos para contar, ese no es mi trabajo.

Cuando la gente de Ken Wroy, una marca neoyorquina buena onda de ropa interior, se acercó a mí para esta colaboración, dije: "¡Claro, hagámoslo!" pero no había caído en cuenta en ese momento que tenía que trabajar con ropa interior, eso es intimidante. Quise ponerme creativo con estas fotos; no me iba a semi-desnudar y mostrar los boxer briefs así como así, ¿saben? Quería un concepto y esta idea de ventilar ropa sucia me pareció padre ¿ustedes qué piensan? Los briefs, por cierto, son una cosa muy cómoda y se adaptan a tu piel sin irritarla, se quedan en su lugar. Están bien padres; asegúrense de ver el sitio web de Ken Wroy y ordenar un buen par de boxercitos.
