    HUgE is a monthly Japanese fashion magazine designed for men, featuring a wide array of different styles of street fashion combining the various aspects of an eclectic sense of style, it's definitely one of my favorite men fashion magazines.
    I will post some of the highlights and a brief review of contents from the last 3 years to date.

    I'm going to echo Pedro on this one. From just the couple of issues I have, I can tell that it's amazing, much better than many of its European equivalents. And it's also really nice to see some stylists that aren't Alister or Panos (though I love them) and some different photographers. Also, one of the few magazines that focuses on the more interesting clothes. One of my issues has a lot of Givenchy and Raf Simons spring '09, which should be enough to show that the focus isn't on suits!

    Expensive though. I can stand $15-20 for a biannual, but $15 ten (or eight, not sure) times a year?! Not a good deal if you don't live in Japan. Or else does anyone have any cheaper importing services?

    men always look quite "ridiculous" when they're on cover of a mag, except GQ covers... i mean they look trash or they look gay... i hope there is more than that
