- Still a Solid Men's Magazine
If your idea of casual day is pleated Dockers and a plaid shirt, you seriously need to burn your wardrobe and start a subscription to GQ. Here's a great guide to men's style that's up-to-the-minute but never trendy. There's a monthly q&a "The Style Guy" and there are many fashion spreads showing the latest trends for business or casual attire. I don't really pay much attention to the reviews or the fiction, but from a fashion standpoint, GQ really can't be beat. My only beef is that the only African Americans that grace the cover are athletes. They have the non-athlete every now and then, but it'd be nice to see more actors, models, and singers of colour grace the cover, too. All in all, this subscription is a sound investment for any man of style....more info
- Postives Far Outweigh Negatives
GQ presents a difficult paradox of a magazine. There are many reasons to dislike GQ: Its pretentiousness, the focus on unobtainable clothing, the holier-than-thou writing.
But, there are so many positives about GQ that a subscription is not only recommended, it is almost required. First, and perhaps foremost, Alan Richman's food/restaurant columns. Second, Peter Bart (the once-deposed editor of Variety) writes a great Hollywood column. Third, GQ is far and away superior to its rivals, which I believe are Esquire and, somewhat surprisingly, Vanity Fair.
Fourth, the fashion features and celebrity interviews are beyond compare. Finally, GQ generally has one article a month that I would describe as investigative journalism, and these articles can't be missed.
All in all, GQ is an essential for any magazine rack....more info

- Very Good
A very classy Mens magazine. Maybe a tad snobish but being aimed more at the nomenklatura of society is much more a blessing than a curse. Much better than any of its competition....more info
- Do not get magazines through Amazon
Buy a magazine, mail in the subscription card. The magazines are faster to first issue and if you use Amazon it is IMPOSSIBLE to change the mailing address. I got one issue, moved and tried 4 times to change address. Pretty expensive issue....more info
- Must for Men
Every man should subscribe to this magazine. The articles are intelligent. The fashion is accessible. The Interviews are timely. The pictures are provocative. All in all, worth every penny. Also check out the "New Sex Now" dvd for as equally progressive ideas....more info
- Another great read
Magazine was fast to ship, with all of the timeless great advice you would expect from GQ....more info
- Bring it on!!
Many people take one look at all of the fashion ads in GQ and assume that it is devoid of substance. This is not at all the case, in fact, it is full of substance.
From the company that brings you Vanity Fair and Conde Nast Traveler, GQ has a long history of being the premier men's magazine. Whats more, they have faced a lot of competition in recent years with the explosion of other men's magazines like Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. But, GQ has separated itself from those publications and taken the high road.
Each month you will find many great columns and features, among my personal favorite are: "the style guy, Dr. Sooth's advice for the horizontally challenged, and Manly Arts." In addition, you will find many fiction and non-fiction stories from America's top writers.
This magazine is a great one to subscribe too. I look forward to it every month....more info
- GQ is a life saver
My girlfriend detected a whiff of perfume on my clothes one night in bed after I had gone to a local strip club. She was very upset. I told her that I had been reading GQ earlier and must've accidentally rubbed one of the 500 cologne ads in the magazine against my clothes. She totally bought it. Now if there were only a way to explain the herpes using GQ....more info

- Good deal I can't complain really...despite the delivery
A great magazine good articles and photography.
My only complaint would be that the delivery takes an age. It seems you can buy the latest issue in stores, and have next month in advance.
These subscriptions deliver January's issue, around mid-January.
I do live out in the country, however mail is only a day extra. I would suspect that they use 'Media Mail' - which can take up to 2 weeks.
I know that with a subscription of Vogue, I bought my wife last year we had all sorts of problems...so it's not just a one off deal.
Like I said I can't complain, the magazine is great and I look forward to the next issue. I just know it's going to take a while to arrive.
Amazing deal!! I paid $7 for a year, at $5 an issue....no real complaints! ...more info
- month old magazines delivered late
I am receiving a magazine that gets delivered on the 26th of the month and is an old issue each month. I am trying to find out why this is happening but haven't yet. Also the first issue was Feb. and I bought the subscription on Feb 25th, when the March issue was out and on the selves. So now they say my subscription will end in Jan. 2010. Received March issue on March 25, not right. ...more info
- Articles of interests
I like the magazine for fashion as well as for the informative news articles....more info
- A Solid Foundation
If a man came to me and said, "how can I be more intelligent, better dressed (without spending to much), and be more informed about everything from food and drink to politics and the obscure?" I would tell them subscribe to GQ immediately. In fact, go to the library and read the last six issues too. In a casual, non-descript world, where nobody pays attention to details anymore (especially here in VERY casual Oregon) GQ is a bit of an island.
Esquire is a good men's magazine too, while most of the others are jokes. GQ, though, will improve you if you just let it.
One final note... This has always been true, but especially in the last year, there have been some AMAZING investigative journalism stories and political profiles in this magazine. The one recently about John McCain especially stands out. It is sooooo much more than a fashion mag....more info
- Damn good magazine
I have read GQ Magazine for almost 9 years now. This is by far my favorite magazine to resubscibe to over and over again. ...more info
- good, but not great
I am a fan of Maxim, but ordered GQ for a change of pace. I would have to say, it seems that GQ is trying to copy Maxim. It's not as good reading as it used to be.
Takes several minutes to rip out all the flyers and perfume ads. If you cut out all the ads, you would be left with a brochure.
- Single a documentary film
Just look at the cover...is this magazine targeted at the single male or what?....but GQ isn't glib...it has great articles,great photography,it's quality!
If you enjoy this magazine you will almost certianly enjoy the new dvd "Single a documentary film"..it features a cast of entertaing and thought provoking experts,comics,Singer/songwriters and "real life" people sharing their insights and observations about the complexities of relationships in todays crazy world"
Also available on Amazon.com...more info
- The men's magazine for "men of letters"....
GQ is still the definitive men's style magazine, but it's also much more. The monthly mixology column is slowly helping me build a bartenders guide that is informative as well as useful, The Style Guy is keeping me from looking like an idiot, and the fiction and features are keeping me full of interesting stories to help me sing for my supper. The bottom line is this: if you want a magazine with guy advice... but don't want something as snarky or "hip" as Maxim or FHM then GQ has just the kind of class you're looking for....more info
- GQ: A Stylish Cut Above the Usual Men's Mag
Unlike Maxim, Stuff, FHM and the rest of the new breed of men's magazines, GQ is in a class of its own, with a more style-conscious, upscale leaning than its upstart competitors. [It tends to be heftier than those mags, as well: Special issues, like the 'Men of the Year' annual, weigh in at as many as 500 pages, which- despite an abundance of ads- includes a wealth of interesting stories and photos]. Unlike its more glib offspring, which tend to rely on short, candy-ish items on sexy women, GQ focuses more on men of style and substance. Investigative reports by experienced, skilled journalists also separate GQ from other fashion-oriented magazines, which are often visually appealing but short on journalistic content. With its consistently strong photos, layout and design, GQ is handsomely ahead of the pack. For those less interested in fashion and more interested in journalism, Esquire is a good alternative choice. And readers after flashy, voyeuristic flair might be best served elsewhere, but GQ readers will be rewarded for their restraint with the occasional raunchy- but refined- spread. GQ seems aimed at the over-30 male, but the mag's assortment of model males apparently appeals to women as well, since they seem to be well represented in the magazine's readership. Overall, GQ is a stylish, elegant read that stands apart from its newer, splashier, offspring. A good choice for the style-conscious male reader....more info
- GQ script without hitch
The GQ subscription I bought for my son-in-law went without hitch from Amazon. The magazine is actually quite good. The articles are extremely readable and entertaining and the subject matter up to date. Wonderful purchase....more info
- The evolution of style
GQ provides a roadmap for male style. Over the years the magazine has branched out from a narrow focus on a male model ideal (at least the '80's vision of that ideal) to cover a wider range of male style and culture. The covers and articles present celebrities from the sports and entertainment industries. And the content shows the modern professional male everything he needs to own or do to be on the cutting edge of sylish New York sophisticated hip....more info

I love my GQ I was happy it FINALLY came. It seemed like it took forever. But wow... Lots of great tips. Who knew how hot I would look in burberry boxers or how much fun I would have reading about new trends and how guys are dressing. I think this is a really fun and interesting magazine. Happy I subscribed for the price I did![...]...more info

- GQ stands for....?
I never bought GQ back in my 20s because for one thing, I never thought of myself as a clothes-horse. Also, I actually took the G in GQ to mean that it was actually for Gentlemen, ie, sipping Champagne on a Yacht pass me the the Caviar type Gentlemen.
Well, after now having reached a "certain age" I find myself going back and forth between Esquire and GQ and find that in many cases, neither are exactly right for me. However, I think I've bought my last episode of GQ. The 2006 "interview" with Will Ferrel was interesting for the first three paragraphs, and then it became an excercise in self referentialism, disguised as an attempt at wit.
Also, the Political views of the editors of the magazine are omnipresent, which would be OK except for the fact that I'm not reading GQ for Political content. There are plenty of magazines out there make this their specialty, and when I find it in GQ, its just tiresome. Frequently, swipes at politicians just come out of nowhere in an article, as if the Editor decided that a jab at whomever he didn't like might help the piece, regardless of its content.
Not to mention - does anyone actually wear the clothing they put on display? $800 tennis shoes? I fear that I will be an Esquire reader - I can't bear to become a "Men's Best Life" subscriber just yet....more info

Instead, monthly and vulgar. Don't waste your time. What was once a respectable magazine now aspires to be Maxim....more info
I'm a girl and I keep getting this magazine I don't know why cuase I never signed up for it.. but then i read it and it is so funny! I know it's a guy's magazine but still it has a comedy in it....more info
- legendary means 'takes potshots without flinching'
GQ is a publication that merits the adjective 'legendary'. As a frontrunner in its genre, it takes potshots from many angles but - one thinks of Mercedes-Benz or Oxford University - keeps on doing well what it does well. (This reviewer drives a Ford and attended Cambridge, so I'm trying to be generous here ...)
GQ is actually several magazines bound into one.
First, it is a high-end fashion catalogue. Unless you work your way through a *lot* of advertising pages to the material that follows, you may think you've picked up a catalogue rather than a 'quarterly'.
Second, GQ consistently presents excellent short and medium-length fiction and non-fiction writing. If the juxtaposition of preening male style with superb writing surprises you, well, welcome to the club. They're both undeniably here between the same covers.
Finally, GQ offers great tips on style in a whimsical, always interesting way. Simply put, you can get edumacated on style by working through this third magazine bound into the GQ format.
As an avid reader and founder of an executive coaching company that includes guidance on how to look the part without spending the kind of money that shows up in 'Magazine A", I read Magazines B and C with gusto.
GQ is not everything. You may want to evade the whiff of pretension that comes from being seen with GQ tucked under your arm. But if Magazine A, B, or C is what you're seeking, you may want to subscribe to this venerable legend....more info
- good value
I ordered this subscription from Amazon and in 3 weeks I got my first issue. Very fast processing.
GQ has been around forever. It has now become more a mainstream book competing with more in the likes of Maxim but still with some of the elegance that it always had.
I look to this magazine for the latest trends in fashion, and tech. It's not the best book, but it is a good read. ...more info
- Picture Books For Big Boys............
I do not have a subscription, and am a female. I have bought this product for interviews with Justin Timberlake in it. It floored me seeing all these advertisements. I understand it is a magazine primarily about latest hip clothes, but it could have articles on why it's cool, price ranges, or comparison buying, and how to get these advertised items.
I have a good selection of various periodicals, and note GQ has a greater number of ads than "Teen People,","YM," and other similiar publications. ...more info
- GQ or what? Ganza?
A true man prides himself in how to properly dress himself-
Even though the prices in this mag are freaking out of this (my) world, the price of the magazine isn't and the illustrations are priceless for those of you that have no clue as to what fashion is. Dorks and Geeks this is the entrance to luring those perky tidbits into your laboratory! PS- I have a special Elixir that seals the deal every time! ...more info
- REALLY GQ
I love this magazine, the images are crisp, the writing consistantly to quality and the photography is always fabulous. Let's face it when a magazine coins a phrase, you know it's good. I have read GQ for several years and have found it consistantly good, though I must confess the only part that I consider must read every month is Style Guy, I don't always agree with him, but I love the questions, you really wonder if these people have ever picked up the magazine the are writing to..one never knows. The clothes they feature are usually top shelf, uh with top shelf prices as well..I mean a $2000 pair of alligator lofers..you gotta love it. If you have any interest in the latest styles and some great writing as well, then I highly recommend this book to you, though frankly I can't imagine anyone reading this that does not already have an opinion of this iconic magazine..but if you don't then by all means pick it up and form your own opinion..it's worth the effort....more info
- Forced subscription !!
I have never subscribed to GQ, but yesterday I got a statement from them charging me $19.97 in due amounts for 12 issues (that i never asked for and never got either !)
And it comes with a harrasment note indicating that "Defaulting on your account could lead to outside collection"
They are trying to force me into paying for a subscription I never asked for. !!
Anybody know where to complaint for these kind of annoying threats ??...more info

- Losing the right to the word 'Gentlemen'
I started reading GQ back in the mid-1980s. I was an undergraduate male, intent upon a political career in London. Thus, I felt GQ was a useful magazine to keep me up-to-date on the latest styles of dress, in addition to the occasional useful article on other topics of fashion, some sports, some travel, some pop culture -- after all, I was trying to be a 'happening' guy, and my social class and schooling (all conservative to the extreme, which in the big 80's was not out of place, but not cutting edge either) didn't give me all I needed to know.
Since those days (and since radical shifts in the direction of my vocation), I have used GQ less and less. Then, about a year ago, I got one of those buy-magazines-and-win-millions offers (no, I didn't win), and one of the few magazines that held any interest to me in this particular list was GQ. So, I thought, a few dollars, and I'll get a magazine I like.
Well, not quite.
GQ is very different today than I remembered. For one thing, only one of the past many issues I've received has seemed something I would want arriving at my home (as I am now a priestly sort) -- apparently, in order to stand out in the men's magazine world, GQ feels it necessary to put an almost-naked woman on ever cover in some sultry pose. Now, fair enough, this is appealing to men, but an examination of issues ten years ago will show this was not the cover feature back then (usually it was a man on the cover, either a well-known person from sports or entertainment, or someone showing a fashion style). The April 2000 issue is more what I was used to -- it has on the cover Nomar Garciaparra, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter. Of course, the headline has to appeal to the prurient interest, reading that they play shortstop as well as play the field. Included on the cover are stories about 'Alaska's Wild, Wild Women', an anonymous story entitled 'My Mentor, My Rapist', and a story about a new 'trend' of men becoming voluntary castrati. EEK!
This is certainly not the magazine I remember. I don't remember being titillated by GQ of the 80s (sure, there were advertisements that are always destined to have some sexual content, subtle and not-so-subtle), but GQ today is trying hard to compete with the almost (or maybe not almost) soft-core magazines such as Maxim. But I have found that I find very little of interest to actually read in GQ, and I am not so interested in the fashions or the sexual content any longer, so, I have come to the decision that GQ is no longer a magazine for me. And there seems to have been an explosion of advertisements -- so many, in fact, that it is hard to find the actual content of the magazine apart from the advertisements. Considering the number of advertisements (which, I must confess, all seem the same to me, and I'm an old PR guy, who used to teach advertising!), GQ should be paying me to look at the magazine!
And, I'm sure, GQ doesn't expect it to be. While in many demographic respects I am exactly who they are targeting (a 30-something, white, educated male), it no longer fits my lifestyle, which has taken a different direction from 'popular' culture. GQ has a strong audience, but alas, it is no longer the magazine for me.
Pass me 'The Economist', will you?...more info
- Horrible subscription service
I would not subscribe to this magazine if you actually want to get it. I got a gift subscription in December...the January issue arrived mid-February...and today (March 10) I got the February issue. Didn't get a response from customer service. I also agree with other reviewers who say it is sort of watered down. If you really want it, don't subscribe, just buy one every 4 or 5 months. You won't be missing much....more info
