“For the past few years, female attention has been focused on spindly men with concave chests and lanky limbs, accentuated by the skinniest jeans. Think Pete Doherty, Johnny Borrell, Noel Fielding or that upside-down toilet brush of a man, Russell Brand.

There have been hints that pecs were on the brink of a comeback ever since 2006, when Daniel Craig emerged from the sea in Casino Royale wearing tiny, powder-blue trunks, showing off a chest like a whisky barrel and shoulders that could pull a cart. But the cult of the skinny boy prevailed – until now.
