Good Sunday morning!
It feels really great to be back on this blog with a new posting!
In my last article, I mentioned that I had recently bought my first copy of Esquire.
In fact, in addition to Esquire, I had also bought my very first copies of GQ, DETAILS, and MEN'S VOGUE.
It is indeed a lot of fun to browse through these glossy American fashion magazines!
Lots of the ads they carry are for the same brands, but it doesn't hurt to see those ads again and again as I switch from magazine to magazine, as these ads are really cool and downright sophisticated!
Volume-wise, the thickest magazine among these three is GQ, followed by DETAILS, with MEN'S VOGUE being the thinnest.
However, curiously enough, in terms of their prices (newsstand price here in Singapore), the order is exactly the opposite, with MEN'S VOGUE costing the most, followed by DETAILS and GQ.
Sadly for the fans of MEN'S VOGUE, I read it on the Internet just yesterday that this magazine is closing its doors (view this article), and will henceforth become a seasonal supplement to VOGUE. The December/January issue will be the last issue sent to its subscribers. I'll be sure to get a copy at the newsstand before it's sold out!
Not being much of a reader, with these fashion magazines I focus mainly on the pictures rather than on the text of their feature articles.
The imagery is indeed inspiring and stimulating for me, and as I leafed through the pages, I've become more convinced than ever that these magazines are indeed works of art, and I definitely get more than my money's worth from these delightful publications.
In the coming weeks, I will look at these magazines again and again, be it during the break from my daily French learning or when I am flossing my teeth before going to bed. I'm sure that the imagery will slowly but surely seep into my subconscious mind, and my sartorial taste will be honed day by day!
I can't wait to make some delightful additions to my wardrobe in the coming months!
Will definitely keep trying, and let my frumpy self become a thing of the past!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and have a prosperous new week ahead!
