March Magazines Are Out - What Are You Buying?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

So far I've only received my GQ and have tabbed the following:

 

David Hart & Co. silk shantung ties - might get one of each since I love the design and look of the fabric

Tender Buttons - to replace the (ugh) plastic ones on some of my jackets - love the sly fox style ones

Fratelli Rossetti loafers in black - planning to wear with a smoking jacket I recently picked up

 

Haven't received my copy of Details or Esquire yet, anything I should be on the lookout for?

Yup, I look at magazines even when I'm not at the airport. Shocking, I know.

I don't think that is his point.

Young clothing magazine writers learn from us, then toss in brand names so they get free clothes, shoes, trips and food, and other goodies.

MOL, thanks for clarifying. I don't work in publishing. Just thought March (like September) was an important issue and might merit some discussion regarding spring fashion. 

 

I have a sizable collection of vintage Esquire, GQ, Playboy, Life Magazine, etc. that I love to look through for inspiration. Well, most of them I look through, some I really don't open anymore since they are invaluable (and in many cases, crumbly.) I tend to only keep the September/March issues of the newer stuff unless something really stands out. 

 

I also collect books produced by the above, one of my favorites is probably "Esquire's Handbook for Hosts" published in 1949. I bought it for $3.00 at a local flea market in perfect condition and discovered it had an original dance card inside from a 1920's society club. 

 

Anyway, guess this isn't the right sort of discussion for the internet age. Let the memes continue!

I've never seen Tender Buttons, but those David Hart & Co. shantung ties look amazing!  I'm definitely picking a few up the next time I'm in Bergdorf or Saks.

Except the people here seem to be around 200lbs or more. Have you checked out WAYWN?

Yeah.  That's why I keep my Playboy collection too.

"I buy it for the articles" wasn't working. Is it telling my wife believes I read it for the fashion? 

 

Speaking of Playboy, just picked up the Playboy - Helmut Newton hardcover book. Highly recommended. fing02[1].gif
