    ^^ Their estimation of quality of a brand is directly proportional to the advertisements that brand places in their magazine

    Name one magazine that doesn't do this.

    Consumer reports?

    Not that I'm a fan of theirs, but....

    No, they manage to be wrong all on their own.[​IMG]

    They don't run ads, so they can maintain editorial independence.

    If they would stick to fashion and quit politics...

    Their politics writing is much, much better than their fashion.

    Agreed, that and the news stories are usually the better parts of the issues. I remember reading about a Russian serial killer in a issue that I can't remember but it was very intruiging.

    They generally aren't to my taste but to each their own.

    he killed 50+ people and only got a life sentence? capital punishment should apply in this case regardless if it was previously abolished

    On the original subject of GQ models, I tend to think they put their models in jackets that are way to short. Cover that ass, however scrawny it may be.

    I'm not sure what their obsession is with having models jump and photographing them in mid air is.

    Here we have one jumping and wearing a tight suit. For the right frame, the newer slimmed down suits look good to me.

    I once read in an issue of GQ that the proper way to purchase a suit and a leather jacket is to size down until you get a size that you can just barely not do up anymore, and then buy one size up.

    Basically they say it should be at tight as possible which is ridiculous. Slim fitting is one thing, too tight is just stupid.


    This is actually not bad advice. How may one-or-two-size-too-big suits do you see on the street on any given day? With a suit you are looking to fit your shoulders (and body length). A tailor can generally alter the rest.

    +1

    I'm kinda small, (5'11", 145), and I like my clothes to FIT. Anything that's nearly close to being "big" is almost repulsive to me

    Someone imbed a tearing sound. Damn thats tight.

    I agree with the OP overall. Its like GQ is becoming a chick magazine.
