As for large sunglasses, those ones are unappealing. Only the '60s styled oversized cubist black acetate frames are apropos.


But that tight and short? I know (and love) very fitted English-style suits, but that looks like it's actually pulling at the waist, as opposed to tailored perfectly for the wearer.

I think the looks are good for what they are: fashion for very slim and edgy guys. I probably couldn't wear any of the sizes or cuts here, but there are some good ideas. Particularly "gray". The suits, overall, aren't my thing, but casual looks aren't bad at all.

The general style is more English either way; however, they usually aren't that short or tight. The best look for a double-breasted is when the bottom button is unfastened and the quarters are pulled open when sitting down or in motion; very elegant. Personally, I think most of the GQ elements are rather conservative.

Where are the description of the outfits? Most of this looks pretty Tom Ford'esque to me, and his 70s fetish.
The models look like a boy's band cast. Maybe you look pretty sharp dressed like that at 18

tom ford yes like the 70's but he would never make anything so short for suiting as he feels it looks femine but if you check the winter dior homme shoe it does not look as bad as it does on that modal in fact!

How unusual to see patched merchandise on the cat walk, GQ must be short of cash to pay decent fashion houses....!!!

The big sunglasses thing is just a continuation of the girls' trend which has been hassling people for a few years now, I don't really see many men picking up on that. However, I do love the coat on the model in the first picture... The duffel coat is pretty beautiful also. I like the idea of grey and knee-length coats, because I own a grey knee-length coat. As for the rest of it... eh. It's all very nice looking but I can't imagine anyone I know picking up on any of this. Edit: I like the hoodie-under-overcoat much more than I liked hoodie-under-blazer from the last few years. It's much more interesting, sort of homeless urban cowboy rather than "too rich to buy my own clothes and too stupid to wear them properly"

You know, I opened the post expecting to be able to slate all the choices but some of them are pretty decent:

I like grey overcoat in the 3rd pic and the tweed jacket and tie of the 4th. The models in the 5th pic look totally brain-dead but their suits are quite nifty. The turtleneck will always look stylish and the brown knee-length overcoat in the final pic is always quite a good look.

Leaving aside the ridiculous oversized sunglasses and the bell-bottom suits then, there are actually some nice items in that selection!

Definitely think the over-sized sunglasses won't happen and that's a very showy look anyway. I like grey suits and the comeback of db if true.

Duffels are classic but not very practical as they are heavy and don't travel well. Maybe in the Northeast at home...

Yes, that was my thought: the single-brested one-button jacket is quite a bit like the H. Huntsman cut.

Turtleneck is nice but that's a classic and I have overcoats in that length for over 5 years now.

This is about as exciting as a "Lady in my toilet"

GQ is an advertising catalogue for fashion brands

I get a free issue sent to me about every 3rd month and I don't subscribe.

Menswear Quarterly is the only thing worth a damn in the glorified advertising market which are magazines.

GQ has gone down the sartorial toilet. Flush!
