my balls and my word

IT’S BEEN A HELL OF A WEEK. The GQ Style crew and I have been scrambling to finish this issue, with its bold new logo and radical redesign. I also happen to be moving tomorrow, which is inevitably a mega hassle. And I’ve been back and forth to the hospital for the past three days.You see, two weeks ago, in the bathroom of my hotel room in Paris, I noticed an unusual hardness in my left testicle. When I got back to New York, I found a good urologist. And on Tuesday, just a few hours after an initial examination and an intense ultrasound experience (s/o warm ultrasound gel), I stepped out of a meeting at GQ Style headquarters to take a call from the doc.

about the cover

1. Many of Matthieu’s photos are taken in Brest, a “basically ugly” Brittany port town that was rebuilt after World War II.2. “I think colors and geometry are comforting,” says Matthieu, who scouts shots on Google Street View.3. Tyler, the Creator, used this Matthieu photo as the cover art for his freestyle “Crust in Their Eyes” on YouTube. (COURTESY OF MATTHIEU VENOT (3))BEFORE SHOOTING Tyler, the Creator, for the cover of this magazine, Matthieu Venot had never taken a professional photograph of a person. “In the beginning, I refused. This is a very big deal—I don’t do portraits!” he recalls from his home in Brest, France.

jermall and jermell

RIGHT, ON JERMELL pants (on both) $1,050 Versace belt $180 Anderson’sjewelry, their owngrooming by hee soo kwon using fresh, inc.“BRUH, LOOK WHAT YOU DID.” Jermall Charlo was pointing to a tiny red speck on the white sleeve of his Gucci polo.Jermell Charlo, his twin brother, glanced up from his plate of ravioli—the sauce was the same color as the speck. “I owe you now?”“I need 500,” Jermall said. He wasn’t kidding, but he wasn’t not kidding, either.

A look from Bode’s fall-winter 2018 look book. Now that she has expanded into developing her own fabrics, the line includes high-waisted trousers, three-button suits, and lacy shirts. (courtesy of Andrew Jacobs (2))(Chris Fenimore)EMILY BODE’S NEW studio is truly a beautiful mess. Chinatown-plaid totes overflow with fabric swatches, and the quilts that Bode turns into extra-covetable shirts and jackets are stacked on every available surface.

Kinori’s collection is like a tightly edited wardrobe, and each piece is designed to layer seamlessly with the rest of the line. (courtesy of Ulysses Ortega/Evan Kinori)3. “There is no specific recipe to make a good piece,” Kinori says.
