It's by Z Zegna, and retails for $1,250.

They're not anything new and are preferred among younger men. I only see old people wearing the full-length ones. Both of mine are very slim and fall to the knee.

The nicest thing I've seen so far for fall was a waist-length brown cashmere coat made by Zegna (regular line). The lapels rolled so perfectly on it. It's not very useful if you have a sports jacket on underneath, but it would look great over-top a sweater.

Really, there's only a few things to keep aesthetically from the 70's and one of them is Raquel Welch, the others being Tina Turner and Pam Grier. Clothing wise it always seemed like pretty bad decade.
The '70s were invaluable for camp, and that is something we must value in this age of ascetic efficency.

We can value the camp it offers, but I'm not going back to olive green shag carpet.

I've flipped through some issues the past few months and the only real "guide" I received from the editor(s) in terms of what is "essential for fall" is to vote for the Democratic Party? Am I missing some other guidance from that publication?

I saw the spread in my brothers issue, and wasn't impressed. Im no fashion snob mind you but I kind of recall Greys being talked about for the past year or two (maybe its my imagination). I like the second photo cause I plan on getting a coat like that (only except a pea coat) and I already ahve the white v-neck sweater on order from RL (its on sale too if I recall). And like everyone else I liked that brown knee lenght over coat.

Oh and I hate the over sized glasses, I dont think its something men should have. Though a few metros could get away with it.

Gentlemen, gentlemen,

All this hatred of GQ...... I ain't a huge fan myself but we all have to remember it is after all a fashion magazine. That is the whole reason for it's existence no matter how they try to market it. If they showed classically cut clothes, then the magazine would not be a fashion magazine anymore. Fashion has and always will occupy the extremes which makes it cool for a second, dated the next. I been wearing my father's knee length cashmere coat for years now and it never feels dated to me. God, the coat is even older them me. I think what these pictures represent is a way to see how outfits can look. Copying them would be dumb at best.... Get some ideas and come up with something that is truly your style. By the way, big glasses were used by celebs to hide from attention while regular folks wear them to attract attention..... Go figure! And yes, I do hate big glasses....

I understand your point, yet this is fashion aimed at a very young crowd. Very different from what you would see on stage made by designers. The models look like college kids, and they take cretinous poses. I am not really criticizing the clothes, which look fine and wearable (almost), only the stageplay. It's not normal I feel the uncontrolable urge to punch these guy's faces everytime I look at these pics.

So, GQ endorses Dale Earnhardt in fashion forward sunglasses....

Well, voting for the Democratic Party seems pretty sound advice to me... Only thing I'll never abide about GQ is its insistence that certain brands are "affordable". I'm sorry, $175 for jeans (once I checked the website!) is NOT affordable for most of the people reading.
