They make some absurd cover choices if you ask me. James S is the biggest. But the one that has the fellow with the shotgun on the cover pretending to be Michael Caine in Get Carter....he is wearing make up. He looks more like Eddie Large than Michael Caine. The features and still life photography are first rate and very interesting. The fashion stories look like they were done by someone who's never been to Savile Row - its all a bit menswear imagined by Masterpiece Theater... a bit fancy dress, like the Chap but with high production values. It pickes up on the right reference points for style (movies etc) but doesnt always nail them convincinglly.
But that said unlike the other poster who photocopies his mates copy (LOL) i think theres plenty of great stuff there to justify a subscription.
