BTC On Paper Exclusive: Framesi’s White Stripe Men’s Color

The slender, milky panel peeking through the rich, chocolate base seasons this look from Framesi’s Next Dandy collection with just the right amount of intrigue. The rounded shape of the cut is the perfect choice to display the soft, silky texture of the hair, and the entire effect is, well…fine and dandy!
