letter from the editor

Caution: new year ahead IT’S HERE. CAN YOU FEEL IT? THE NOTION THAT THINGS WILL CHANGE FOR THE BETTER IN THE NEW YEAR. Maybe they will. And maybe they won’t. There’s just no telling. Life has its little surprises – like that Zuma blindsider that sent us plunging over the fiscal cliff last year. We’ve all made those new-year resolutions to get fitter and eat better, and they’re good while they last, but about halfway through February you get the sense that while it’s not going too badly, it’s not going so well either; it’s just another year, with its small successes and little failures. It’s called getting on with life. Better commentators than I have pointed to our descent as a nation, so let me turn away from that ongoing disaster to…

WINNING WORDS COOL STORY, BRO Dear GQ, I recall the very first time I purchased a GQ magazine – May 2013, the Cool Issue – and funnily enough I still have it. It reshaped, redefined and realigned my idea of ‘cool,’ and just reading through Tebello ‘Tibz’ Motsoane’s November interview reignited how one is simply cool by doing what they love and loving what they do. It’s really not rocket science (unless, of course, rocket science is your thing). Twenty-six issues later, it has groomed me into a fine gentleman, foodie of note, savvy entrepreneur and future GQ cover guy. – Dalisu Khawula Dalisu wins a Hugo Boss Fragrance hamper worth R2 370. GQ Endorses Slim yet relaxed, a tiny bit of elastene makes these denims ideal for the weekend. Twitter @GQdotcoza Tebello Motsoane was my favorite article all…

the real stars of the show

‘I always refuse to do everything,’ Arjona says. ‘I would tell my agents, “I won’t do this – unless it’s True Detective”’ Despite sharing a set on season two of True Detective, this photo shoot was the first time Adria Arjona and Leven Rambin had met. Shooting for the highly secretive second season involved the kind of security measures usually reserved for Special Ops and Beyoncé albums. Actors learned lines through a password-protected app. Pages had to be turned in at the end of each day of shooting. The only trailer for a while contained no spoken dialogue. At the mention of the then rumoured orgy scene, they sweetly asked, ‘What orgy scene?’ ‘I always refuse to do everything,’ Arjona says. ‘I would tell my agents, “I won’t do this – unless…

GQ: How did you get your start in entertainment? Trevor Gumbi: By chance. I was walking through Melville with friends on a Sunday night. Passing Cool Runnings, one of them said, ‘There’s stand-up comedy in there; you’re funny Trevor – go try it.’ I did and that’s where it all started. Then came my first big break a few years later when I was cast as the lead in a mobile cellular network ad. I evolved from just a stand-up comic, to a script writer, MC, voice-over artist, SAFTA nominated actor and doting father. GQ: You lead the family business of the 21st century, and this year your reality show launches. What can we expect from The Gumbis? TG: 2016 is the year for us. You can expect the wackiness and sincerity of…
