In Men’s Health issue dated the 8th of January 2010, the front page covers are partially devoted to advertising these designer jeans.

Among the Calvin Klein jeans adverts in this magazine, five of the eight advertisements have male models while the remaining three are standalone product illustrations with no models adorning them. Out of the twelve male models featured in these ads, 7 are white men while the rest are of African American descent.
The male models in the advertisements are comparably young and with a smaller body compared to those on the cover page (Berry, P126). In the eight advertisements, masculinity is tied to fitness, running, and car racing. The last of the eight adverts is of a male model posing at a beautiful nature walk. this, on the other hand, ties masculinity to class and culture. The general trend in this magazine is that advertising for the masculine segment is generally directed to both the upper-middle and upper-class segment.
