For the second straight season, the most beautiful, well styled, and inspiring men’s fashion editorial has come from the Bergdorf Goodman Magazine/Catalog. The “Viet Sojourn” story is stunning,
What the magazine does very well is mix very refined casualwear and the highest level of OTR clothing in the same story and treat both with an equal level of respect and sophistication. Best pages 13, 37, 56
What does it say about American men’s fashion coverage when the second (and much anticipated) issue of Men’s Vogue completely tanks and the big April issue of GQ (save Adriana Lima) treats us to an absolutely yawn-filled overview of khakis and grey suits.
