And Mr. Armitage’s all dressed up formal portraits are divine (Esquire 2013, right).
But I also have quite a hankering for his mussily disheveled scruffy looks as well–with wrinkled or mismatched clothes, hair unkempt, some stubble, and/or shoes optional. Sighhh!
Gloriously glistening muscular biceps aside when RA portrayed John Porter in 2010’s Strike Back (below), sweat doesn’t turn me on–unless that person plans to march right into the shower, etc. Ha! Miss Kitty, this one’s for you. As near as I can tell, the dirt on Richard Armitage’s torso only serves to help define his musculature. Well done there! And the dirt must have also acted like a great sunscreen, because he didn’t seem to tan or burn at all during the filming. Ha!
And for some new to me sexily scruffy Richard Armitage pix, Noemi and Teresa A–Thanks Ladies!–pointed me to an Instagram site called Thorin Only. So below are some of the Richard Armitage pix that I particularly liked from it:
Only the t-shirt would count as scruffy here. But I’m not complaining. Oh those biceps! Sighhh!
The shoeless feet and wrinkled shirt are so sexy!
And below, is the scruffily handsome Richard Armitage pix that was the catalyst for this post for me. The hair long enough to run your fingers though, the beard needing a trim, the unflattering plaid shirt opened too low and showing a hint of chest hair (purrrr), etc. And though this picture breaks my preferences for liking a shower clean scruffy man–with his glistening sweat being evident–there is always a shower handy somewhere. Ha! And Richard Armitage’s mirthful smile and dancing eyes are oh so appealing. Sighhhh!
So how is a lady supposed to concentRAte with all of this Richard Armitage handsome scruffiness around? NOT! Ha!
