the leave-behind

‘IF YOU WANT TO BE MY FRIEND, you better come to my house with the same woman, always, as your partner. I don’t care what you do with whomever, but my house will not be used to cheat on your partner. It will also not be used to teach my daughter that we just swap women like outfits. Our sons can’t be doing the foolishness that we did, and our daughters can’t be the tools of said foolishness.’ Those are the words I came across on Facebook in March, written by Sakhile Gumede. They resonated with me as much as I hope they do with you – because as much as GQ explores all the things you know and love about the brand from a fashion and lifestyle perspective, “lifestyle” should…

the beauty of blend

that than marathon runner Frank Shorter, who was beating the competition during the 1972 Olympics – until an imposter seemingly beat him to the finish line. After his false victory, the offender was apprehended, and Shorter rightfully took his spot on the podium. Now, adidas pays homage to the man who kept going with a Frank Shorter vs The Impostor collection, featuring the ZX500RM in bold gold and the I-5923 in royal blue. Blends make the world more interesting. Tullamore D.E.W. brings together three kinds of Irish whiskey for a blend that’s as wonderfully complex as you are. Learn more at tullamoredew.com…

• THERE’S A SLIGHTLY FUSSY MENSWEAR DICTUM THAT SUGGESTS THE LEATHER OF YOUR BELT MUST ALWAYS MATCH THAT OF YOUR SHOES. While here at GQ we tend to ignore such directives, preferring to make up our own rules, there is a certain wisdom in the madness: after all, a lime-green crocodile belt worn with a pair of burgundy cordovan shoes would look, well, terrible.
