1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Necrobump because i couldn't find a thread in General chat or entertainment and didn't want to make a new one....



    Couple magazine reccomendation questions:

    I was thinking of getting some magazines. Mainly for something to flip through on the toilet and stuff as i know gq/details/esquire isn't exactly super respected around here. I was wondering what would be worth subscribing to out of some of the men's magazines

    gq
    esquire
    details
    mens vogue


    Funny - I get those 4

    The first issue of Mens Vogue was really good, are they still publising it and if so how has it been? I would probably like to subscribe since GQ has gone down hill fast.

    It's 2nd and 3rd issue were mediocre. It has improved since then and worth a 2nd chance.

    I only read 10+ consistantly. I buy other magazines when I see something interesting.

    This isn't meant to be negative (though i guess it is) but I've decided that the idea of the "Men's fashion magazine" in inherently a bad one. After some forays into the european and japanese options, I just can't get with a whole magazine devoted to the subject.

    It almost always comes off as corny or "try to hard" and most of them are really poorly written. For example, after multiple recomendations on Superfuture, I checked out "HE". This has got to be one of the few magazines I threw in the trash straight away after reading it. Patrik Ervell Article was the only thing worth its salt.

    In conclusion, I'll stick to the solid unisex magazines (Purple, Another,ID) and those that cover arts and culture as well as fashion.

    Fuck the rest.

    I feel like reading sufu/styleforum gives a better insight on all of that anyway

    To be honest, I would have to say the Cabelas catalog (hunting store) always looking for the latest hunting jackets and gear. It might not be fashionable to you guys, but from Sept to the end of October it's where it's at for me![​IMG]

    Try 10+, sure it's a magazine with focus on fashion. But the writers are smart and witty and the articles/interviews are great.

    I read them all, but the only ones I really like are L'Uomo Vogue (for the fascinating and extraordinary celebrity portraits) and Men's Non-No (for the creative and excellent styling with seemingly ordinary or lower end items). If I'm looking at a magazine that covers more than just fashion and starts going into interviews or current events/popular culture (e.g. GQ, Details, Esquire), then usually the fashion is the one thing I don't really pay attention to in those magazines so they don't really fall into the category for me.
