Shawn Mendes ditches the stitching as he goes shirtless for L'Uomo Vogue - WATCH

He may have began his career with Justin Bieber covers on YouTube, but Shawn Mendes has wasted no time making his own mark on the music industry with ear-worming hits like 'Stitches' and 'Treat You Better'. Now, the 18-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter has proved he's not shy in front of a camera either, after shedding his shirt for the latest issue of L'Uomo Vogue. Shot by Sebastian Kim and styled by Rishka Bergman, it looks like he's ready to give The Biebs a run for his money in the heartthrob stakes too... Check out some of the shoot's highlights below:
