Has GQ gone Gay? - Page 3

post #31 of 41
the publishing industry/art world/fashion industry in general is disproportionately gay. if you've ever been in the conde nast cafeteria you know that you are hard pressed to find one straight male in there. the fact is that these are the people who put out a huge amount of what is on the newsstand and probably the majority of the writers/editors/photographers for all these mens mags are gay.

and sooo..... this means???

and so this means, rjman, that there is no such thing as pure objectivity in this world and that if the majority of the people who are responsible for putting together a particular publication share a certain orientation, then it is not unlikely for that orientation to be reflected in that publication whether it be explicit or implicit. are you following me?

The American Jackass article from a few months ago was great.

(tiger02 @ 22 Nov. 2004, 10:30) Lots of talk of European fashion mags--anyone have tips on how to get subscriptions, and which are worth the money?  Preferably in English, or easy Italian   Tom
Also, how does one subscribe to Monsieur, Edgar, Dandy or Souliers? I've looked online without finding subscription information.  IMMSMC, I believe someone (a doctor, I believe) mentioned them in this thread as good alternatives to the dross in American men's magazines. BTW, I don';t think GQ has gone gay quite so much as it's gone sort of metrosexual.
I was also hoping someone would respond to this.

I purchased the current issue of Tréspointes [sic] from http://www.info-presse.fr. I found out later that the actual order was fulfilled by http://www.journaux.fr. I received my copy within a week in New York Journaux.fr also carries Monsieur, Edgar and Dandy, but I couldn't find Souliers. Not all the magazines are available for subscription through this site. Unless someone comes up with a definitive source, you could order the current edition, then read the instructions on how to become a regular subscriber. In the case of Trépointes, I believe a phone number was listed.

I also ordered Trepointes from them but haven't received it -- and I ordered almost 2 months ago. How long did it take to arrive? They've blown me off when I've asked them where it is.

RJMan, Sorry to hear of your poor experience. Like I said, I ordered from info-presse.fr and it showed up in less than a week. If you decide to give up on the online site, here is the subscription information from the Trépointes magazine: Distri-Abonnements B.P. 1121 - 31036 Toulouse Cedex 1 Tél. 0825 15 01 28 From overseas: + 33 5 61 72 76 27 If you use this info let me know how it goes since I haven't tried it myself.

Thank you. And between these few magazines, which one would you say is the most serious one, with the best "informative" photographs?
post #40 of 41
I can only speak for the Trépointes magazine which is dedicated to high-end shoes. The one issue I've read is somewhat dissapointing compared to the Japanese shoe magazines referenced in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....;t=4518. But my understanding is that they sometimes put out really interesting issues. Regarding the style related magazines, if I were to judge a book by its cover, I'd say Monsieur seems to be about classic style, whereas Edgar and Dandy maybe for a younger crowd. That's just a total guess though.

Has anyone ever read "The Chap?"
