do it yourself

ONCE UPON A TIME, long before streaming and MP3s and iTunes and SoundCloud, a recording contract was the musician’s yellow-brick road. You slog through thousands of openmic nights, free gigs, – anything to get your name out there; you hustled and pushed and fought until all that work put you in front of the right people and boom: a record deal. Competitions like Idols made that dream an even closer reality for the average Joe: anyone could audition, anyone could be discovered, and if you won (or in a few cases, even if you didn’t), that was it. You’d already had some of the best mentors in the biz, all backed and underwritten by some of the world’s biggest labels, and once a major studio was involved, they…

DIETER LOSSKARN MOTORING EDITORFew people’s lifestyles incite more jealousy from the editorial team than that of our motoring editor. In his never-ending, global search for the next great road – and the best car – this month sees him piloting a Porsche Boxster GTS through the twists and turns of the Italian Alps. KEENAN JEPPE GRAPHIC DESIGNERA brand like GQ has many moving parts that all require attention (and often all at the same time). The core of the newsroom is our graphic designer, Keenan. When he’s not busy making these pages come to life, you’ll find him in the recording studio working on his next album (now streaming). (PHOTOGRAPHY BY ARTHUR DLAMINI/@DARTPHOTOGRAPHY)…

the hit list

1 Turn Up Charlie Idris Elba’s first Netflix comedy sees him playing a struggling DJ and eternal bachelor, who is given a final chance at success when he reluctantly becomes a ‘manny’ to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter, Gabby (Frankie Hervey). 2 Sex Education This one just got renewed, so while we’re waiting for season two, take in season one of this brilliant and ridiculous story of a pubescent teenager (Asa Butterfield) who takes the family business of sex therapy and opens his own practice at school, with hilarious and catastrophic – but equally helpful – results. 3 Umbrella Academy When their adopted father dies, a group of supernaturally gifted kids reunite in their 30s to figure out exactly what happened to…

secure the bag

THE ACTUAL MANBAG You can rely on Prada to set the seasonal trends, and for SS19 Miuccia has decreed that it’s all about ultra-short shorts, oversized nylon deerstalkers (yup) and these neat little shoulder bags for men. Somewhere between last season’s camera bags and actual handbags, they’re as practical as they are elegant. THE CONFIDENT CROSS-BODY Shirt, vest jeans, belt and bag POR Dolce & Gabbana The cross-body bag has reached its high-fashion zenith with Dolce & Gabbana’s pop art-inspired take on the trend. Go the whole hog and pair this Lichtenstein-bythe-way-of-Milano piece with an eye-catching shirt. THE BOLDER-IS-BETTER TOTE Shirt, trousers and bag POR Bottega Veneta The nascent creative director of Bottega Veneta, Daniel Lee, recently unveiled his…

how to prevent hair loss

• EVERY GUY WANTS TO KNOW HOW TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS. Even if he isn’t particularly worried about losing his hair, it’s reassuring to know that there’s some recourse if it ever gets bad up there.While there are a lot of gimmicky devices and procedures and supplements out there, there are really only a few things that actually work. We sought expertise from Dr. Michele Green, one of NYC’s most in-demand dermatologists, about what she tells her patients to do to keep and strengthen the hair they have (and regrow the hair follicles that haven’t yet dried up). Follow her plan at any age, with the help of your own board-certified dermatologist, and you should see long-lasting results within a few months. 1. Seek help as soon…

the ultimate flex

R14 000 louisvuitton.com • NOW THAT THEY HAVE THE MASTER OF ALL THINGS COOL at the helm in the form of Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton have wasted no time in making sure they have their hand in the most lucrative, fashionable pot in tech: ultra-luxe, true-wireless earbuds. And they have the tech inside to somewhat back up their price tag. LV have worked with New York-based luxury audio company Master & Dynamic, who developed a precise system to help the Horizon Earphones deliver impeccable sound without the loss of audio quality that so frequently comes with using a pair of Bluetooth earphones. Louis Vuitton’s famous logo pattern adorns the earbuds, while they also have ‘L’ and ‘V’ monogramming as a highlight, just to make…
