    Cover line on the June/July issue: "How To Be A Man."

    (Snore).

    Too bad, there's a good interview with Louis C.K.

    By contrast, that would be a hell of a cover line on Cosmo.

    It's an age-old trick.

    Who's telling women they're ugly? Beauty magazines.

    Who's telling men they're not masculine? Men's magazines.

    You can't leave out Junod's piece on John Lasseter. That was damn good.

    Men's fashion magazines that want me to wear clothes designed by gay men, like these slim-fit suits that make everyone look like an eight-year-old boy. And if you're overweight, you look like a sausage stuffed into an eight-year-old's suit.

    The "gay men" as designers complaint has been a long running one in fashion. It's even more prevalent in women's fashion.

    Regardless of the orientation of the designers, the basic complaint boils down to designers designing more for themselves and fashion editors than for the public.

    I love the tailored clothes they show in Esquire and GQ. I don't think they make men look like "8-year-old boys." Quite the contrary, the oversized suits that most American men sport make them look like an 8-year-old boy trying to wear dad's suit. The stuff in GQ and Esquire - other than the really colorful, hip-hoppy stuff aimed at 21-year-old Eminem wannabes - is terrific. That being said, I can understand the complaint that they don't really help overweight men very much. Occasionally they'll address that. For a while, GQ had a monthly feature where they picked schlumpy men off the street and gave them a fashion makeover, including some bigger men. Don't know why they haven't had it lately.

    I had a great tailor when I lived in NYC that I would take all of my suits to.

    The difference between how a well tailored suit looks and one that has just had the sleeves & pant legs shortened is incredible.
