Ralph Lauren’s cool and all, but I can’t help but think there’s a little too much of it.I’m obviously alone on this one tho…

i agree that there are very little coverage as far neopolitan/italian preppy or saville rowe. the only magazines i know of are towne & country and departures. departures magazine is only available to american express gold members.

You say that there are no good magazines that cover men’s tailored clothes, but the bi-annual DNR MENSWEAR MAGAZINE, does an excellent job in my opinion.

Very telling… I’m a big devotee of RL’s, though only the more interesting aspects of his offerings: fine-gauge sweaters; suiting; classic prints (i.e. herringbone or glen plaid). Furthermore he’s been pretty on-target for the past few seasons with menswear — AND womenswear.

amillionpieces i completely agree with you! there are just too much people wearing it..that’s why i’m trying to avoid buying though i’ve got to admit that i am still being seduced by the beautiful RL store design and the advertising…

DNR is good but not easily available, it is even hard to find in New York!

Anon, oh yeah, I agree they do have some really good ads, and some very nice clothes. It’s just the saturation of it all, I like the idea of looking a little deeper into other designers and stores that have also very nice stuff, and aren’t so everywhere.
For fashion magazines, male ones are new here, I got FHM Collections (begrudginly as I don’t like FHM) last week, and it was pretty good, but GQ Style looks better, however they’re so hard to come by. There was no copies of GQ Style in my whole town!

No one over 50 responded? And with all the old man style featured?

I put “49+” so anyone over 49 fell into that group.

instead of asking what people’s favorite labels are, a more interesting question would be which labels do people end up buying most often ?
As a retailer, I like fashion but at the end of the day, sell more clothes. My guess is that brands like The Gap and Banana Republic may pop up more than Dior.
Btw, I am one of the respondents to the survey.

i certainly hope the editors of gq, esquire and their uk counterparts gets to read this blog.

Interesting that your male readers seem more fashion forward than their female counterparts. I guess it makes sense, since less of the male population loves fashion, you get a more concentrated sample.-a female reader

I was hoping to find more research online into the tailored clothing that I wear out every day not just to work but out running errands, out with my friends, and out on dates with beautiful women….I’m 35 years old and for the past ten years or more I’ve been buying a lot more Kiton Napoli, Stefano Ricci, Zilli, Louis Vuitton, Cesare Attolini, Etro Milano, Borrelli, Hermes, Isaia, Tom Ford, Loro Piana, Purple Label Ralph Lauren, Brioni, etc.. instead of what I used to buy most of which was primarily Gucci, Prada, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Zegna, Ferragamo, Burberry, etc.. I’m very interested in finely tailored suits, coats, jackets, blazers, shoes, belts, sunglasses, cufflinks, and pants from the tailored brands….especially about what I’m hearing is the highest of the high in terms of quality which supposedly is the 11.5 Micron Super 300′s fabric that is now available from Kiton…..if anyone knows when it will be discussed on this website or any others please let me know, thanks guys! :)
