    What is annoying is that TOJ fanboys (not impolyt_one btw who is very clear about his design philosophy) keep recommending TOJ jackets as substitutes/equivalent of leathers that have nothing to do with the comparatively straight-laced TOJ offerings. TOJ is not competing with the elaborate, baroque or distressed designer jacket market and having the topic pop out in those threads is getting to be the equivalent of spam. Once again TOJ fanboys do this not the people working for the company.

    I don't see many people recommend Toj as a substitute for jackets like that, but maybe I am not paying attention.

    yeah i've been there. it's pretty awesome, you should go. it is mostly what is online, but you know, you can actually touch it and try it on and shit. it's presented quite beautifully. sometimes they have some stock that isn't on the website, they have a huge closet of stuff in the back (mostly stuff that is or was online) that if you're nice enough they might let you into.


    lolquoi. hey man i really like your posts most of the time but this is utter nonsense. you think someone writing for a magazine called fantastic man isn't going to assume a gender binary? she doesn't say men are one dimensional, she says magazines (like GQ and Men's Health) treat them that way. And she doesn't say men should start being objectified sex objects whatever the fuck that means, she says men shouldn't be afraid of being more sexually represented, particularly because of a fear of being labeled homosexual. I don't know about fucking Marc Jacobs. Whatever, it wasn't perfect but to me it was funny and on the right rack and a breath of fresh air and I think the idea is important to present to people that give two fucks about style and culture.

    I don't mind AFL but I don't take any of his women studies posts seriously. they read like 'hey i just took WMN 311: Introduction to Critical Theory'

    fwiw I think most higher level gender studies theory is nonsense :(

    I disagree with it all being nonsense but trying to stick into every thing is pedantic/pointless/detrimental to what I see as the purpose of feminist thought. I dunno though.

    the problem with gender studies (and a lot of humanities disciplines) is that the current theory is so jargonistic that it's devoid of meaning or any relevance outside of a very narrow academic context.

    I think men's fashion magazines should not write about naked men, but about clothes, and also abandon pictures of half-naked ones from their magazines.
    how can these pictures not be labeled homosexual? these magazines are not made for females.
    the topic of fashion is already or still perceived as gay or feminine, so why are there so many pictures of muscular half-naked guys in these magazines? that doesn't improve the situation.

    Why do you feel the need to rehabilitate your personal interests in the eyes of the larger culture? Do you feel ashamed for being interested in fashion/clothing?

    i haven't read a lot of women's magazines, but pictures of naked girls in women's titles are bad too
    most of the readers are not lesbian, so they are not pleased by the pictures, they rather make them insecure about their own bodies, because they are not perfect like the photoshopped ones in the magazines.

    so in conclusion i think, "erotic" pictures belong to erotic magazines, but not to lifestyle or fashion magazines

    So pictures of naked men make you feel insecure about your own body, or what?


    False dichotomy. Since when are eroticism not a part of fashion?
