    Got an International Make catalog in the mail yesterday. Do any of you get this? Is there any way to isolate the list I/we got on that generated this unsolicited arrival? Not only is it a waste of natural resources (the paper and ink needed to make the catalog as well as the petroleum products used in the clothing), but I hate to think that I carried it out of my mailbox and into my apartment.... I feel dirty!

    Please, please, make it stop.

    Isn't that Christmas clothing? "Gay Apparel", I mean.

    It's hard out there for a pimp. But the International Male catalog makes it that much easier.

    I received one in the mail this past Monday as well. Don't know how they got my name and address in their mailing list. Anyhow, I threw my away.

    I think IM is more of a stealth gay porno mag than anything. I doubt the clothes is really even for sale as I can not imagine a human being wearing anything in that catalog.

    I haven't gotten one. Don't they want my money? I was thinking of a pirate shirt with at studded black thong and an orange Mr. Snuffalupagous-fur coat.

    Let's not forget the bizarre sleeping zipup things that we had as kids... I can't find it on the website right now, but they do have an internationalmale credit card. I cannot think of another card that would send worse signals to whatever stores you are purchasing from.

    Do you guys have GQ/Esquire/Cargo subscriptions? I wouldn't be surprised if they sell their subscriber info to IM.

    I've seen this FOR SALE at Borders, next to the GQs, Esquire, FHM et al

    it's definitely a magazine for the transition from hetero to homo

    A) I would have to see that to believe it. I think pics are in order!!

    B) Are you sure that was borders, and not a random West Village bookstore with leather chaps in the window?

    I've seen it at Borders too. I think it is the transition mag between the "Men's Interest" section and the "Gay and Lesbian" section. That and Men's Health.

    I've seen it at bookstores like Borders too.

    I'm surprised that no one has posted any illustrations from IM yet in this thread.

    Now I am really starting to question my subscriptions to Mens Health and CARGO.
