I agree with Kai -- I actually subscribed to "M" magazine back in the late 80s. Â It was a high-end men's style/clothes/health/cars/vacations magazine. Â Mostly about clothes/style, but different from GQ in that it had no cheesy/tacky stuff. Â No boy-rocker articles or advertisements. Â Ralph Lauren, not D&G. Â In one issue, for example, it would review a new Utah ski resort and the new Porsche 911, AND include several articles about clothes, designers, goretex jackets, the best cashmere, etc.
I never saw M magazine, slightly before my time, but wow it sounds amazing. I'm not sure how many of you are in to sports cars or racing, but that segment has recently gotten a fantastic new magazine that seems to be their version of what we're looking for in mens clothing. It's called "Octane", and a recent magazine had a comparison article featuring the Mercedes Gullwing vs. the 300SL Roadster, the new Aston Martin, the death of Ayrton Senna, and an article on the Rolex Daytona watch. Virtually no cheesy content . . . unless you dislike Rolexes.
