Choice players on the 20/20 team (specifically Executive Editor Christine Yeh and Web Designer Julie Zidel) are rabid Butch Walker fans. And when Walker’s latest release hit recently, its songs fueled the creative escapades of pulling together this October Men’s Eyewear issue. That said, so great to see such a powerful performer equally committed to his image as it stands with eyewear face forward via this striking cover illustration on his new album titled Stay Gold. We can’t quite identify the exact frames but in recent videos delivered by Walker, he seems proud profiling himself constantly with glasses (and sunglasses) a face. See what we mean by checking out his recent video trailer for Stay Gold (narrated by his son James Blue Walker!) and should you be interested in purchasing the album, try the personal route at butchwalker.com.
