April Print : GQ Magazine General Style 114 Comments

JKISSI : Street Etiquette’s first time in print has been released this month via GQ (Gentlemen’s Quarterly). GQ’s April issue was ushered out a few days ago with actor Shia LaBeouf gracing the cover. We were brought to the attention of GQ by an email from an anonymous person in a high place who came across our site, which in turn has sparked several collaborations between us and GQ. First was our online guest contribution for Black History Month, titled “Birth of the Cool : 20 Black Style Pioneers”, where myself and Travis selected 20 unsung individuals whose style we admired.  It also seems the popular Twitter hash-tag #BELIEVE2010 , among a certain crop of bloggers, has blossomed  into something more than tweets of motivation but to actual accomplishments. From online to print, the power of the Internet and blogs never ceases to amaze me in how it crosses traditional media and gives individuals like myself and Travis the means to express our opinion.  I’m very grateful we received the chance to represent the Internet community and our supporters in this feature.

Trav: There is no denying that GQ is the magazine for mens style. They have managed to turn a noun into an adjective, something that every lifestyle brand strives for. It’s very fulfilling for us to be given such a momentous opportunity so early in our development. We will continue to build and work hard. Thanks to everyone who showed much love and support when they surprisingly came across us in this magazine.

Fit details : (Riding uptown on the 1 train) – The warm weather swings around, once again providing us the chance to cease the intense layering from the previous season and run with something more simplistic. The Vintage Ralph Lauren polo shirt was scored from a vintage shop; what attracted me to this shirt was the bold stripes and interesting color palette. Ultimately straying away from my A.P.C New Cures I decided to go up a few notches and wear my Flathead jeans this time around. I am also featured in the Denim Debate, a site where myself and 24 other individuals basically beat our denim to shreds and document it as time goes by. The classic silhouette of a hand sewn loafer, in a nice brush antique brown by the company Sebago, is definitely one of my favorite shoes to hit the pavement with as the temperature increases. The large carryall bag from Billykirk is really all I need to carry my camera , books and any other necessities I may require throughout the day.

We were featured in the “Penny-Pincher’s guide to style”, where we discussed our most discounted items in our very own wardrobes, and how it relies more on personal style than brand name to make a product look great.

GQ has provided millions of gentlemen around the world a lifestyle at which to aspire. Stick the adjectives suave , polished, and classic when describing the connotations of the magazine. As you may know by now we have a tendency for reverting back to History in some riveting way. We searched for our absolutely favorite GQ covers throughout the many years and formulated a quick collage from sports players , actors, artist to just damn well dressed gentleman- these covers are some of our favorites.

Great thanks to Andy Comer , Photographer Eric Ray Davidson and the whole GQ staff

    Well…Josh and Trav I’m pretty sure it was me that gave the heads up first via Twitter. Haha Nah, just playing it is good to see the moves in motion, if that makes sense. I like to see people that inspire me do good and achieve because ultimaltely in one way or another that helps me to achieve what I want to achieve a.k.a aspiration. Haha Well, keep doing your thing, I know I say that all the time. I think it is becoming over done, anyway I liked the spread it was nice to see it guys. That’s it for now until your response of course. Ha

    90′s Ralph Lauren is where its at Jkissi…..!

    I work for a company contracted to Ralph’s Home-ware, and we have all these catalogues from the late 90′s its amazing to go through them, and see the old styles, well worth remixing and bringing up to date, all though I can’t believe the cut on some of the shirts…I’ve got a 90′s pink and white Blake Shirt, it’s as long as a bloody dress!

    Anyway well done for getting the recognition both of you deserve!

    That looks like such a great bag and considering all the things you put in it, it must be spacious!

I loved the 20 black style icons that you guys did in February. I was really mad when GQ didn’t put Sammie Davis Jr. in its 50 best dressed men of all time. Glad to see that you guys gave him a nod. I also enjoyed the coverage that you got in the April issue. I’ll be checking your blog from now on.

It would be awesome if you could scan some of these magazines for us to see my friend let me know! Myself and Travis always discuss on how we think the 90s really messed up the sizing on clothing lol I could order a small and it would be incredibly long lol lucky we moved towards changing that lol

    congrats on the magazine coverage

    though I think you’re exagerating GQ a bit…

    it’s a great magazine but it’s a magazine for fashion newbies

    I read it monthly for almost 4 years and eventually, I got to the point where it became useless to me. More hardcore fashion magazes like V-MAN, Fantastic Man, An Other Man do gentlemens fashion and lifestyle far better IMO.

    GQ is great for what it is though — mass market and newbie friendly

    it’s the CNN of gentlemen and satorialists

    [...] Travis: There is no denying that GQ is the magazine for mens style. They have managed to turn a noun into an adjective, something that every lifestyle brand strives for. It’s very fulfilling for us to be given such a momentous opportunity so early in our development. We will continue to build and work hard. Thanks to everyone who showed much love and support when they surprisingly came across us in this magazine. Read more…… [...]

    Beverly hunt ; thanks a lot surely will..

    Alexander ; thanks man

    adidasaj : I see what you mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that stands corrected here , our readership varies from people who may not read all the mags you mentioned. We’re not trying to act more superior to anyone who holds GQ as their favorite magazine they do hold that type of connotation to most people who don’t want to go too in depth in the ‘fashion’ thing just want the abc’s , and thanks for the congrats

    Char ; Thanks its a step for everyone!

    Hi y’all,

    This is the best fashion website ever. You make me proud of being a black man! Y’all are so fresh, so clean…

    I have one question for you regarding your ties. What is the perfect widht for a tie? Yours look like finer than the classic ones we find in the business generally, but they are a little wider than ties slim. I know that the average width is included between 7 and 9 centimeters, but I shall like knowing the exact width of the ties you choose moreover very well.

    Excuse my poor English, I am French :)

    Regards,
    K.

    @johan: Fit my brother not style lol – now they fit pretty well btw

    @SwanDiamondRose: Thanks a lot for your continued support!

    @Kevin: No problem at all your English is readable – I think the perfect width for a tie is about 2.5 inches for me personally I like it to be in between the 2.0 even 1.5 inch skinny tie and something much more larger 3.0 inches. It can really depends on ones outfit and proportions of your fit let’s say most of your clothing is slim fit it would only make perfect sense to add a slim tie – if skinny then you get the pattern here

    How do those Sebagos fit? I generally wear one size in sneakers, and size down one in grown-man shoes. So how are they, in comparison to Nikes or something?

    @michael: Lol got me , lol but yeah in all reality trying to get more comfortable with it let’s see what happens maybe a future post

    @Jordan:
    Hey Jordan , they fit true to size my friend. I wear a size 11 in most nikes and athletic sneakers like jordans so you should be fine going with your true size.

    Some time ago, I did need to buy a good car for my business but I did not earn enough cash and could not purchase something. Thank God my colleague adviced to take the home loans at trustworthy creditors. Thence, I acted that and was happy with my sba loan.
