As sort of a tangent to Fok's top ten list, here's GQ's:

    Tsubi Skidd Kid Dee Dee
    Levi's Capital E Matchstick
    Gap Red Buckleback
    Diesel Viker 71G
    Acne Jeans Max Raw
    Prada Linea Rosa Classic Fit
    Earnest Sewn Fulton 06
    Gilded Age GA-1004
    Dior Homme by Heidi Slimane

    These aren't in any real order, each one was "best of" in one category or another. They aren't ranked against each other. Of interest, though, they are all straight leg, and all seem relatively fitted. I guess no more AmJack in GQ.

    The Cap E mathsticks and the Dior Homme's are tapered, not entirely straight.

    Sorry, you're right. I meant slim/skinny, as opposed to bootcut/flare. I think a lot of those are a bit tapered. Overall, however, I was impressed with the list. I own/have owned a few (Acne, ES, Diesel) and think that there are some other good choices in there too. Gap was only in there because that particular line is associated with a charity, and Prada because they wanted to include one "designer."

    I thought it was a little predictable. Diesel doesn't make cool jeans anymore-no matter how much they spend on adverts, acne is getting boring; they were never as edgy as cheap mondays, APC NS, nice jean; but also been billed as "safest jean ever" for the last 3 years in gq, tsubi?...no comment, the only ones that jumped at me when I was skimming were the apc's (how come they didn't look like that on me-oh yeah, the length) and the prada's (suprisingly) the prada did look really nice; but in the same magazine is the prada ad with the model wearing some sort of midriff sweater with these jeans...the rogan's were boring and the matchsticks are almost right; but levi's can't shake the levi's out of themselves so you're stuck with bs creases and poor pocket placement....how did a $290 (or was it 190?) pair of jeans win the best "all-around"?

    Well, regardless of style, AmJack is an attitude, lol. That said, GQ always seemed famous for advocating the over-distressed, big-ass flare jeans, with loud striped shirts and chunky loafers or boots (though to their credit, these items always seemed to fit the models in the mag better than real, live douchebags). Their style in this issue (overall) has been seriously updated.

    Pardon my ignorance, what is AmJack?

    is GQ the mag of choice round these parts?

    any other fasion mags worthwhile? Esquire? Vanity Fair? Man's Vogue?

    That list is even worse than I could've imagined.

    I am guessing it stands for American Jackass.

    Amjack is more than clothes and accessories. It's spiky hair, deeply tanned skin, steroid pumped torsos, trashiness, and arrogance.
