    Agreed, and I felt the same about Vitals. If the team over at Mens Vogue is looking for inspiration, head over to Kinokuniya and pick up nearly any Japanese men’s magazine. Prepare to be blown away and proceed to steal smart as one of my college professors used to say.

    i actually liked vitals alot for what it was: a more upscale version of cargo.

    who’s on the cover of the mens vogue, btw?

    Tiger Woods is on the cover -

    he is not exactly my idea of a Sartorialist

    I’m a subscriber, but I haven’t seen my copy yet. Doesn’t sound promising.

    Every relationship is doomed to end in disappointment sooner or later. I figured MV would last longer than a one night stand.

    I couldn’t agree more – Am I really supposed to be reading Maxim at the ripe age of 29?

    Didn’t even know Men’s Vogue was publishing a US edition (I must be a “trad”). I must get my mitts on the first edition (any ideas?). That the content is less than inspiring does not surprise me. I often have this problem with US fashion mags (yes, I am a Euro and biased). I just find them all so “safe” (and that goes for the adverts too). Their readership seems to have too much money and too little personality.

    It’s more Vanity Fair than Vogue. And Tiger Woods on the cover is just inexcusable!

    After seeing this post last night, I ran to the local zine store and scooped up the second issue. I must say that it should have been titled “Men’s Void”. Void of the ideas, photos and stories that made me fall in love the first time around. I was so disappointed. Unlike most men’s mags when I buy them, I end up tearing out one or two pages that interest me and toss the rest. As a tribute to the first issue of MV, The entire issue has been in my bathroom for the last few months and I have returned and re-read the entire issue over and over, I was feeling like my long lost twin separated at birth had finally come home. I know hundreds of thousands of men like me have been clawing the walls for the next issue to come out and now I feel as though I have been gut shot. Someone needs to be fired! Please just use the first issue as a template to fill a literary void in my heart. As far as Woods being the central story, this where I run out of words……uggghhh

    The magazine has no “identity”..it will develop in time…do they want to be GQ or L’Homme…

    The first edition wasn’t very good either.

    fyi-

    I know from a close, reliable soure, that noah feldman wore all of his own clothes but they gave him differnt shoes to wear during the shoot and then he didn’t get to keep them. this seems low level to me. they should’ve given him the shoes.

    I agree with all, such a shame.

    If it was the US vogue for Women (with more European influence, and fashion from the likes of L’uomo Vogue) for MEN, I’d be sold.

    Perhaps someone should send these comments there direct and give them all a bit of a kick up the bum they require!

    2009: L`uomo vogue. All the years i have bought that magazine. They have had such a great layout, but since ( i try to remember) the end of 2007 (?) it is horrible. There is nothing which inspires me. It is like the GQ or FHM. Nothing spectacular. All the same and same stories: Naked wifes, cars, suits, yachts and “which cigar to smoke in which bar”. No, no, no, this is not me. I have stoped to buy it.
