You’ve got male: the Montreal edition. We’ve taken our annual, totally unscientific, wholly fun edition of The Worthy 30 on the road to the well-accented wilds of Quebec’s largest city. Today: les boys. Here, then — in no particular order — are 15 of the 514’s catch-me-if-you-can cads, chivalrous mensches, heart fortune-hunters, and the odd cougar-bait. The list is based on social gallops around the ville and recommendations from friends and frenemies alike. And eligibility? A modicum of attractiveness, some discernment, accomplishment and some je ne sais quoi were all part of the casse-tête. Some of the fellas here are more famous than others. Others are more available than some (to qualify, they couldn’t be married, engaged or terminally shacked up!). So, enjoy this mural of manly marvels.
