Tip the MB: GQ Losing Its Touch

Tip the MB: <em>GQ</em> Losing Its Touch
Q: Have you seen this yet? GQ is on a downward spiral with their "good" fashion tips. Collar stays? Really?
--Perry


A: GQ is like a machine. Every month they need to produce x amount of words to fill a magazine, and when that happens you're bound to get some bad (and often contradictory) advice. Not to mention, Glenn O'Brien (The Style Guy) can't write everything. Collar stays aren't just out, they prevent successful artful dishevelment. Take a close look at George Clooney's beautifully disheveled collar and you can clearly see there is definitely not a collar stay.
