when controversy calls

Wolff’s access to the inside track is why he always kicks up a stir For the past ten years, six times a year, at a corner table in The Wolseley or in a hotel bar in New York, I have sat down with Michael Wolff for two or three hours and gossiped. Relentlessly. About media, politics, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and money. Never lost for an opinion, Wolff will hold forth and get whatever it is that is currently vexing him off his chest. And then do it again for good measure. While these breakfasts, lunches and dinners are always enormous fun, they are never aimless and are fundamentally R&D sessions for Wolff’s pieces in GQ. In his time, he has investigated everyone from Barack Obama and Jann Wenner to Tina Brown…

Luke DAY Shot by fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco, our biannual “Collections” feature on p228 showcases SS18’s most important trends and pieces. Collated by GQ Style Editor and GQ’s new Fashion Director Luke Day, the edit focuses on soft neutral shades and relaxed tailoring. Day says, “I think the key message is in the diversity of casting, showing that the season’s key trends are relevant for every man.” Kevin POWELL This month sees the release of Black Panther, Marvel’s first predominantly blackled superhero film, which includes cover star Michael B Jordan.

‘i dig everything’

I’m sitting on a plane, reading a book about Lou Reed. I don’t even like Lou Reed, not much, but the reviews had been good – the book is by the award-winning Anthony DeCurtis and is actually completely captivating – and like many people the reason I was reading it is because I’ve started to look at the 60-year history of the rock era as a jigsaw, one that completists such as me really ought to finish. You see I’ve started to subscribe to David Hepworth’s theory that the narrative arc of pop is slowly but surely drawing to a close.* Like the jazz era, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that the age of rock is going to be finite and, while there will continue to be breakout stars who…

Do not underestimate the power of a moustache. Just ask rapidly ascending 25-year-old actor Bert Seymour, son of English fashion designer Anya Hindmarch. “My very first audition, for a role in Endeavour’s series five on ITV, was the morning after my final Lamda show, for which I’d grown a Thirties-style moustache,” says Seymour. While he graced the audition last June with said ’tache, he hadn’t had time to learn a single line so had to read from a script. “I thought I’d bombed.” Three weeks later, astride a “Boris Bike”, he received a call from his agent. “But it was so windy I couldn’t hear her,” he says. Eventually she managed to tell him the news: he had got the part as army lieutenant Rupert Carmichael in Endeavour – and had…

favourbrook fever

‘I wanted to create something part museum, part Loulou’s’ While most of the planet wonders what Meghan Markle will be wearing on the big day, Oliver Spencer is preparing for an onslaught on his 25-year-old British occasionwear brand – and wedding guest favourite – Favourbrook. A statutory stop-off for any self-respecting flâneur on his perambulations around London’s St James’s, it has now opened what Spencer believes is the only store dedicated to “night and occasion”. From a “destination retail” point of view, Favourbrook’s latest move is a smart one. To the west sits Christie’s, with its deep-pocketed collectors; to the east is the London Library, perch of the creative and cultivated; and to the south, gentleman’s clubs full with members eager to pick up a shawl-collared smoking jacket in readiness for an…
