    Picked up a copy from Lodger in Clifford St yesterday. James sherwood seems to be a bespoke flutterby: there is a spread where he is photographed wearing suits from almost every firm on the Row.

    Hmm, where are you seeing that? I was only able to order issue's #2 and #3. Apparently #1 is sold out?

    Send them an email then, you might be too late for #1.

    Did you subscribe and get it delivered in Europe?

    My mate subscibed, I won't. I'll just read his copies and scan whatever interests me.
    Looks like a decent mag. Hope it will survive the crisis.

    Finally up to date, after subscribing a few weeks ago, got the current issue (no 4) along with the previous issue in the post. A bit miffed as no 4 has been on the shelves everywhere the past couple of weeks.

    $65.00/year is not too bad if its a decent mag. Hell GQ and Esquire are so bad now i cant even look at them and the crap thats inside is awefull. I would rather pay $65.00 for something that is ledgable.

    But at least they can spell 'awful' and 'legible'..[​IMG]

    They make some absurd cover choices if you ask me. James S is the biggest. But the one that has the fellow with the shotgun on the cover pretending to be Michael Caine in Get Carter....he is wearing make up. He looks more like Eddie Large than Michael Caine. The features and still life photography are first rate and very interesting. The fashion stories look like they were done by someone who's never been to Savile Row - its all a bit menswear imagined by Masterpiece Theater... a bit fancy dress, like the Chap but with high production values. It pickes up on the right reference points for style (movies etc) but doesnt always nail them convincinglly.

    But that said unlike the other poster who photocopies his mates copy (LOL) i think theres plenty of great stuff there to justify a subscription.

    Im in.

    Spelling is for small timers like yourself. Thats why they have spell check in this age.
