November Magazines


American Vogue (Nov.)
If you look at only one page while flipping through your “wife’s” Vogue, check out the Norman Jean Roy double page portrait of Thom Browne and his crew. C’mon, you have to admit the guy is on to something.

Travel & Leisure (Nov.)
Sometimes a magazine really hits the mark, Novembers Travel & Leisure hits a home run. The “Best of Paris” story by Natasha Fraser-Cawassoni gives detailed information for everywhere new and chic in Paris to spend your child’s college fund instead of Princeton. Anders Overgaard?s photo’s in “Jewel of India” could not be more beautiful.

GQ Style (British)
I buy almost everything and I still couldn’t find enough to love in the premiere issue of GQ Style to justify the price. By comparison, it shows you just how on target Men’s Vogue was in their first issue. Please Men’s Vogue don’t disappoint us!

    I like Thom Browne’s clothes — except for the pants that end four inches above the wearer’s shoe tops. Bizarre . . . .

    So bizarre, in fact, that a critic reviewing “Stay”, which featured Browne’s clothes, complained that the movie never explained why the leading man’s pants were so short.

    I agree that Men’s Vogue has some beautiful images and great writing. But, the lead graphic designer (the one responsible for placing all text into white boxes) needs to learn how awful his design choices actually are.

    the problem is he’s doing something totally retro.
    i mean there’s no modernity in it at all.
    it all looks like jfk circa 1965.
    there’s not even any reinterpretation. at ALL.
    i could download a few pics of jfk too and copy some suits.

    Sometimes magazine let you down. You buy them all excited and then get left disappointed with the content.
