    You guys all realize that the magazine is on newstands, right? If I could pick it up in Moscow, ID, you can pick it up pretty much anywhere. Go to your local Barnes&Noble.

    Jeez guys just go to your local Barnes&Noble.

    dude, glenn obrien is an old man . He writes for style guy, which is essentially a similar concept to SF, but with much less information and questions from much stupider people.
    i.e.

    What a fucking tard.

    Was this the issue with the soccer player on the front?

    If so, I read the piece in it by O'Brien, but I didn't get the connection to any forum personas. It was surprisingly well written though, and enjoyable to read. I wonder if O'Brien has to dumb down his writing for GQ?


    He wrote at least two pieces in that one (and yes, I think that was the issue.) The one that refers to SF (by name) is purportedly email correspondance between him and his friend, whose name eludes me right now. (Argh.)

    Seriously? Glenn O'Brien is one of he smartest, funniest guys in fashion, not to mention one of the most stylish. Dude can match Supreme with Borrelli (and I think, has).

    Why is he a 'tard? Because he doesn't advocate "button down, slim jeans, CPs?" for all occasions? I'm glad that there are guys like Glenn O'Brien around who advise people to let their freak flag fly, rather than telling them to be as conservative and inconspicuous as possible.

    Meh. when did i talk about button slim jeans and cps? I just feel like he is a hypocrite for critizing sf while he himself does nearly the same thing for gq.

    ftfy. glenn o'brien's tv party was so amazing and i am so mad i wasn't alive and in new york to see him own public access television. glenn o'brien was an underground king amongst rockers, mods, punks, artists and a lot of people who went on to matter in modern day music.

    i mean if you ran a show that featured blondie, klaus nomi, and basquiat as guests, that puts you up there in terms of being one of the coolest people ever.

    dude, if you haven't noticed, sf is pretty much full of hypocrites.

    what he does for conde nast is paltry in comparison to his entire body of work, especially when he wrote for interview. so he doles out succinct, snarky advice to people who probably shop at the mall, so what? gq's distribution is that broad where he has to appeal to a broader audience, that point was brought up earlier.

    A long time ago, I had a brief correspondence with him about Paul Bowles.

    looks like glenn o'brien has two articles in this one, an op-ed piece about a sea change in men's fashion, and one of his fun interview type pieces. Style Forum is mentioned in the latter, but it appears they're strictly speaking of the MC'ers rather than the SW&D types judging from the context and that they reference ask andy's forum as well.

    Sort of. But they talk about Uniqlo jeans as well, which is an exhausted topic on S&D.

    I got Glen O'Brien confused with Eric Glennie.

    No way Glen O'Brien is Wolf Cub or naaaaate, they are better writers than he is.

    He seems quite charming and knowledgeable, but reading his work is such a trawl.
