I keep my subscription to GQ because it's only about ten bucks for the year. The two hours or so of entertainment I get out of that on the few days after the issue arrives are worth it to me. However, I don't think I've ever really picked up many fashion tips from GQ. I find that this forum is much more knowledgeable than the 'StyleGuy' advice column, and also provides a variety of answers within a very short period of time. Whenever they mention upcoming or more obscure labels, it seems like LA Guy and Labelking, et al, have mentioned these labels months before GQ does. I do enjoy just looking at the pictures, both in ads and in the photo spreads, just to see what the designers are doing. Once in a while I'll say "that's a really cool look", but mostly the outfits are either too unwearable and look ridiculous, or way too trendy. Especially since I live in a less fashion-conscious midwest city, and the typical college attire is an Abercrombie/Express/Banana Republic (for 'high-end'
) combo involving jeans/shirt or sweater/boring shoes.
