    Aha.. After much searching, i have finally found a source for a series of magazines that rival Flusser's books; certain issues of departures magazine. Â Not only do the issues focus almost entirely on tailored clothing, there are 5 page ads from Saks, Neiman Marcus, John Lobb (wow-- never saw THAT before), and great one page ads from oxxford and brioni. Â The articles are excellent and very well illustrated; the one on neopolitan tailoring (ready to wear, mostly-- quite a bit about Kiton and Borrelli, smaller section on attolini) are really great; the one on british tailoring is focused on the new hipsters on the Row, an article on "traditional british items" like the whangee handled umbrella/ locke hats/ overcoats, all are fun to flip thru with a good starbucks coffee: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Depatures is a great magazine.  I've only read one issue but it had a nice indepth article on RTW shirts and it went into each brand ranging from borelli and lorenzini to Robert Talbott and Ike Behar. Is there any way to get it without being a American Express Platinum or Centurian card holder?

    I found out from the source, no way whatsoever to get this magazine unless you are a platinum cardholder....luckily, those that have this magazine MAY be willing to part with them.
