    I have issues 1-50 of fruits but they're in PDF, not too sure how to post in this thread or if it is legal (but then we post fashion editorials so I figure as long as it isn't the whole mag...).

    Fuuma, if you'd like I can give you a location to upload them too and then convert the sections you want to an image format suitable for posting here.

    Msg me, we'll work something out.

    Mags I got today:
    -Hypebeast issue 2: the revival issue (not my kinda mag but there is a MMM interview and a really good shot of Maurizio Cattelan wearing a crisp white shirt.
    -Encens issue 29: good for that 80s fashion styling and designer inspired by it (say Doma and KVA)

    Posted the Rei Kawakubo / CDG dossier from 032c on my tumblr. It's a pain in the ass reposting it here because the forum software likes to resize things.

    Christ I saw the name of this thread and thought it'd be about people discussing what books are "fashionable" read or have the most stylish covers. I'm relieved - some really interesting stuff in here.

    A few iphone photos of The New English Dandy.

    The book is half matte paper and half glossy. It alternates each signature of the binding.

    The matte pages have historical photos and candids and the text runs the gamut from the birth and evolution of mens style to interviews with some of the tailors and models to a full tailor's glossary toward the back of the book.

    The glossy pages are mostly professionally styled photoshoots with the models usually wearing their own clothes (or at least that's how it's presented). There's a description of the the look and often the model with each photo.

    huh i think i did actually post that 032C before elsewhere ...

    anyway, another one snake and i own (though i think you sold yours ??)

    for the sake of archiving, since perhaps many have already gone through the pdf already
    it was a bit vain and over-dramatic fluff, you can labour through it if you care to. it read like stream of consciousness drivel pieced together from twitter feeds and song lyrics but apparently there's good stuff that's not contained in those 40 pages i skimmed

    Just reserved a few books from my list at the uni library so should have scans+reviews up in the next week or so. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far, snake, shah, and sipang especially
