Brett Dreissig has been told many things. Too skinny, too bulky. Too long, too short. You can not imagine the reasons that Brett had to swallow for not being suitable. Yes, he was even once told he is too sexy. Now I ask you, what is wrong with being sexy ?
Brett started his career at sweet 16. Having to listen to all the negative remarks on his physiques at that age, certainly helped him to become the confident guys he is now. Originally from Minnesota, Brett spent most of his life in L.A., He now lives in New York and loves every bit of it. The two things he misses most are his group of close friends and running on the beach. Brett loves to run – hence his top shape – and claims it to be the kind of work out that puts your mind to ease and helps you to deal with negative comments and disappointments
When Brett was 16 and went to his first shooting, the photographer told him to shave his legs. In fact, he told him he looked like he was wearing furry pants. An advise Brett took to heart and has been shaving ever since. This has resulted in a peculiarity that probably defines Brett more than anything else. He has developed the habit to cut all his pants into shorts. Whether it is summer or winter – and New York winters can be very cold – Brett always wears his handmade shorts. Sop we ask again, can there really be such a thing as being too sexy ? –B-
