Come And Get It! (UPDATED 2nd Sept)


Royale Studio - Solo Sailor in the Rigging 1

I know sailors are out of fashion these days, but this is still one very sexy bondage picture!

 At the suggestion of one of the mitchmen blog readers, I have embarked on a long-envisaged revision and upgrade of my twin series of articles on the vintage images of Royale Studio and the related 'Guys in Uniform' Studio. More images (including the one above) and commentary will be added to the articles and I also plan to add completely new posts covering image sets that were left out first time round. As an adjunct to this process I will shortly start to make my Royale-GIU entire collection available to readers through a clickable link to a photo album attached to the mitchmen blog.


Sept 2nd - FOUR updated articles are now available to read
also the first Album of the new mitchmen Open Archive of Royale Studio images (link in Part 1c).

Royal Studio 1a - Sailors In The Rigging

Royal Studio 1b - More Sailors In The Rigging

 Royale Studio 1c - Sailor. Tight Shorts, Rigging

Royale Studio 2a, Navy Romeo (Part 1)


I would encourage you to access the archive and let me know if you have any comments or difficulty with the download option. If you have images of your own to add or link in I would be glad to hear from you too. You can contact me via comments most easily but only an e-mail via my profile page will enable me to message you back. 


You can also read 'Guys in Uniform' posts (none of which have been revised yet)

I've deliberately included this nice torso image with the 'Guys In Uniform' logo in the corner. Many of their images circulate with the tag 'MIU' (men in uniform) presumably because someone didn't know 'Guys' was the real ID and thought 'Men' sounded better. Sadly both options are virtually useless for internet searches so maybe it's just as well that GIU is often confused with Royale Studio, even though they were 20 years apart.

The mitchmen GIU review series starts at

Guys In Uniform 1 - Cane Stripes (none revised yet)

All these articles can be retrieved for individual selection by clicking the 'GIU/Royale' label below

Thank you for doing this. So sad that they are difficult to find online today.
