I agree completely - I find that Am. Psycho mostly just drops the names of fairly well-known tailors and labels, while Glamorama actually describes the dress to a far greater extent. Plus, although I'm thankful for the violence, I find that Glamorama is less grotesque in the violent torture scenes, which actually makes it possible to recommend it to e.g. my very squeamish girlfriend.
I liked the brief "Ask GQ" discussions the people in the book had, though.
An added bonus is that Glamorama does not include the annoying (although I do get the point of them) panegyrics about crap eighties pop music. The canonization of Huey Lewis and the News was almost a deal-breaker for me.
If Am. Psycho is the Trad, Glamorama is the streetwear forum, I suppose.
