I love the trapeze shape of Audrey’s coat, but it was hard to capture the silhouette perfectly from the front. It wasn’t until she turned to the side that I could really see it all.

The Independents….. Fantastic Man

I saved Fantastic Man for last in this series because I think it’s the last word in independent men’s magazines.

 

I’ve watched Gert and Jop evolve their work into a magazine that has maintained its original vision while still opening new doors of creativity. What I love about the magazine is that it isn’t edgy or avant-garde, but it always keeps me on my toes and always seems to challenge my perception of what a man should want to look like. In that way, I feel they lead the charge in moving men’s fashion forward.

 

It’s also one of the few men’s magazines that I actually read more than one or two of the articles. And don’t get me started on the photography. The current issue, which stars a huge editorial by Alasdair McLellan shot all over the British Isles, was the most brilliant men’s editorial of the entire fall/winter season. For the ladies, The Gentlewoman is on the same trajectory.

The Independents……… PORT Magazine

This is our second magazine for today because I didn’t think it should be left out.

 

It’s a magazine with so much potential, we feel like we’re waiting for it. They have great cover subjects (i.e. Daniel Day Lewis and Philip Seymour Hoffman,) very nice editorials, and it’s nicely written. But like a sugary treat, it leaves you wanting more.

 

But also like a sugary treat, I’ll keep coming back because it’s enjoyable.  If you do have a chance to pick it up, make sure you read this great article called “Do it Like a Dude,” by our friend Angelo Flaccavento.  He talks about Gianni Agnelli’s style individuality through anarchy, with a couple of references about his “life of hi-class mischief and five-star luxe.”
