In a game of who wore it better, this professional model has some serious competition.

Meet little Augie, who has been showing up his uncle - personal trainer/model Aristotle 'Aris' Polites for the last three years.

The adorable four-year-old has, with the help of his mum Katina, been recreating his genetically blessed uncle's professional photos - with hilarious results.

It looks like Aris may one day have to battle the tot for work, with Augie showing serious serious modelling skills and nailing the pensive-looking-far-into-the-distance look. 

What started as a side-by-side photo comparison of a buff, shirtless Aris modelling jeans and a black and red wool scarf and Augie showing off his baby belly in pull up jeans and a plaid shirt fashioned into a scarf, has grown into a shared Instagram account Baby and the Body.

The pair's escapades have since earned them more than 64,000 followers as they show off their uncanny ability to match everything from beach looks to work out gear, leather jackets and streetwear. 

Here are a few of our favourite looks.
