Remember Jeremy Meeks? You know, the sexy felon whose 2014 mug shot drove the Internet wild?

Oh yeah, you remember.

Well, it looks like this convict (who was released from jail in March 2016) is making a name for himself in the world of high fashion.

Meeks made his (shirtless) runway debut at Philipp Plein’s New York Fashion Week show this past February, and apparently it was worth a repeat performance. Plein welcomed the chiseled ex-con to his Milan Fashion Week show on Sunday, where the model strutted his heavily tattooed stuff.

Plein, who boasts a couple tattoos of his own, wrapped his arm around Meeks for the show’s final role call.

Although history would seem to suggest otherwise, Meeks can, in fact, keep his shirt on. He modeled a James Dean-esque ensemble during the show, abs fully covered.

We’ll have to wait and see if the up-and-coming model reprises his shirtless strut for NYFW.
