Just to be clear, if the polo had vertical stripes would it have made any difference?

I know that you are being sarcastic, but it's not such a terrible business model. A lot of Japanese fashion magazines are entirely ads. as in, the layouts are all paid for. The companies have more money and can do a better job representing themselves than can some overworked fashion editor at a magazine.

What I object to is shitty copywriting and crappy photoshoots, not that the end goal is branding and sales.

i just multi-quoted a bunch of those copy posts and wrote fairly lengthly replies that I hoped were intelligent and good for the thread. Then mu fucking browser crashed (umm....prolly shouldn't have had like 20 tabs open...).

So, anyway, good points all. I don't entirely disagree, and maybe I'll muster up the energy to recreate my post after lunch...

In college I bought GQ from time to time, and I'd literally skim through it once, rip out the full-page photos I liked -- the editorials and adverts were all I ever liked -- and recycle the rest (the majority) of the magazine without reading a single word anyone had written.

I sometimes do this with I-D, better editorials.

GQ has a couple staff writers that are excellent, Michael Paterniti in particular.  Since advertising is the source of most good fashion shoots I'm not sure why you wouldn't want ads in a fashion magazine.

That's just age. As you grow older, you either take care of yourself, eat a little better, and workout, of you get fat (how, exactly, depends on your genes).

It's a truism, but it's impossible to have the body you did when you were 20, at 30; or when you are 40, to have the body you had when you are 30. Even pro-boxers and MMA fighters often move up a weight category or two as they go from their early 20s to their 30s.

dunno, man. i'm almost three years away from 30, and my body is still exactly at (or very close to) where it was at 20. i'm hoping to be one of those scrawny old guys who ends up modeling for yohji

I plan to just remove limbs and extraneous body segments to retain my current weight. foo.gif

Leave it 3-4 yrs, not saying you'll be fat but 5-8kg more is pretty normal.
