1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Only current subscriptions:
    Vitals
    GQ, especially Alan Richman's articles
    Food & Wine
    Food Arts

    Other reads:
    New Yorker
    Economist
    Atlantic Monthly
    Men's Health

    Now that I get most of my sartorial information from the internet, I'm not as into GQ, but it will still have the occasional design, food, or current affairs article that's interesting. For a buck an issue, it's hard to go wrong.

    Those of you who read international magazines or international versions of American mags, do you get them from the newsstand or is there a convienent way to subscribe. I'd be particularly interested in British and Italian types.

    "dragon, tiger, leopard".. I last saw that magazine when I was 14 years old. Of course, I'll pick up an issue of Guns & Ammo whenever I'm in the States visiting my brother. [​IMG] I got him some MOP grips for his 9 last Christmas. No, seriously.

    Ditto on The New Yorker. Magazines don't seem to have a good perspective on style. I walk the stores in my area and find styles, either by myself or with some assistance. Also, this site is a great resource, much better than any magazine. [​IMG]

    Vitals
    Men's Health
    Maxim
    Stuff
    Car and Driver
    Washingtonian
    Playboy

    And FYI, to those that don't know. You can get subscriptions CHEAP on ebay. I got two years of GW for $12, three years of Stuff for .99, three years of Car and Driver for $12, etc. Takes a couple months to kick in, but it's legit and a great deal.

    Chocoball, Don't get your brother Guns & Ammo, get him Gun World. You have my personal guarantee he'll like it better. Of course, I am the editor of the latter publication. [​IMG]

    I read DNR - weekly publication by Fairchild. It is like reading Billboard magazine instead of Rolling Stone if a person is in the music industry.

    How in the world does this work? Are these employees putting people into the comp listings? Some guy was selling Maxim, Stuff, and FHM, four years each, for about $6.

    Just to add my two cents.. English: The Economist i-D wallpaper Whisky Magazine Japanese: Men's Club Men's EX Men's Non-no Begin I've found that Japanese fashion magazines are generally lightyears ahead with regards to coverage, pictures and practical knowledge; especially if you're into business fashion, as suits are de rigeur for 99% of companies.

    Sorry for repeating a question, but does anyone know how sellers on Ebay can offer such good deals? Is it a case where you think you're getting a four year subscription but in the end you only get one year?

    Thanks.

    For men's style magazines, I recommend:

    Arena Homme
    British GQ
    10
    British Fashion (or British Style...I can't remember the name off hand)

    All can be found at Barnes & Noble. I usually just browse through them in the store, as they are sort of expensive at $15-$18 a copy.

    Arena Homme and British GQ feature very wearable clothing. 10 leans towards the artsy and fashionista side - great photographs. However, the clothing and outfits that are featured tend to be less wearable. Judging by some of the articles, their target market is made up of mostly gay men. Not sure about the others.

    I read Apparel News (you can glimpse some articles at Apparelnews.net) for West Coast stuff - pretty current and has news about emerging designers and smaller shows as well as established shows and designers. I also read DNR, but that is really marketed towards mass market, and is not going to keep you up to date on the latest stuff. Uomo has all the runway shows. If you want *all* the shows, subscribe to firstview.com. And if you want to hear a really respected point of view, read Suzy Menkes' articles in the International Herld Tribune.
