    for hijacking another thread, I'll start my own. (May I?) [​IMG] Did anyone else see the new GQ spread with the guy from Bush or Blur or one of those bands in the new RL Black Label suits? They look really nice. Opinions?

    What is Black Label? Is this a new fully canvassed line in between Purple and Blue? If so, these could be ones to watch -- I love RLs suit styling.

    I'll have to look at the article when I get home. I thought this place was full of GQ forum refugees - am I the only one that still gets this magazine?

    Edit: yes, I think it is between Blue and Purple labels, but I don't know about any construction details. It is cut more like Purple Label, IMMSMC.

    I got my GQ from the mailman today and saw the article, it doesn't say anything too much about construction. they are all very slim fitting with very skinny lapels,mostly two button and low gorges. I still like the RLPL stuff.

    Never again lump Bush and Blur in the same category...

    Er.. which one is good, again? I only know either of them as the soundtrack to 'MTV's Undressed'.

    The steely glint through your fuchsia raster-aliased glasses has me shaken, I must say...

    I'm gonna vote for neither.

    Could you perhaps scan an image J, or maybe find one for those of us who are too lazy to do so for themselves?

    Yeah, great cut, but is it the sillhouette that's that slim, or the guy who's wearing it?
