i'm not a man, i know, but i quite like i-D's men's fashion ... they also have one issue per year dedicated to menswear alone, i recall.

Good seasonal fashion mags:
AnOther Man
loaded fashion (will be named as fashion inc. next season)
FHM collections
...arena homme plus is good too, if less non-fashion nude guys included

I vote for VMan & L'Uomo Vogue (which is luckily written in Italian; Im sure Id be disappointed if I could translate the articles)..

ArenaHomme is ok, although their edits sometimes seem like they're focusing on the photography moreso than the fashion itself..

i know its different but it still focuses more on the cheaper end of the market im not been snobby but i think the magazine is very young orientated(arena homme is quite good though.

10+ is my favorite by far.....

Another man was good, Arena Homme+ is nice.

GQ is garbage, same with Details and all those other testosterone fueled ones.

agree, and most of the US magazines have very bad fashion editorials, the styling is bad and "old" sometimes.

i think galliano-homme meant that apart from those high end brands, FHM Collections also shows how to match the clothes with H&M and topman etc.
