Therefore they write about arbitrary made up bullshit (ie 17 magazine or something with "37 pieces of shit with flowers on them!") and also blatantly contradict themselves all the time (like the pocket square thing). The contradiction thing wouldn't be such a big deal if they didn't state everything as gospel. The last time I read GQ everything in it was stated like a command, as if I would be shot on sight if I wore anything other than a white pocket square or dared to wear a vest or cummerbund with a tux.
That being said, it's still an amusing magazine to flip through when my library has a copy.
