FROM THE BEGINNING, this magazine was intended to be global in scope. When we launched GQ Style as its own, stand-alone publication back in 2016, we kicked around some language about how it would be “like GQ with a gold passport.” Once we started making the thing, we were quickly getting our actual passports stamped. Over the past three years, we have traveled to London, Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Zermatt, Addis Ababa, Dakar, Lagos, Antwerp, and beyond. I’m proud to say that what started as aspiration—a statement of intent—has now become de rigueur for this magazine. In fact, it wasn’t until we started putting the finishing touches on this, our 12th issue, that I realized we had unwittingly produced our most far-flung issue to date. Just by following our noses and unabashedly…

cb2 + gq

With a mix of modern industrial design and natural materials, the pieces in this collection are both luxe and minimal: highly functional everyday furniture that’ll make your space as stylish as you are.

When people walk into your space, they should think, ‘This is a really interesting mix.’ That, really, was the inspiration for the CB2 + GQ collection.”—JIM MOORE, CREATIVE DIRECTOR–AT–LARGE FOR GQ…

Mobolaji Dawodu GQ fashion director Mobolaji logs more miles than any other GQ staffer: For this issue alone he styled Tom Holland in London, Steve Lacy in L.A., and a crew of street-cast models in Marrakech. And that was just the start of his recent travels. What’s the last item of clothing you bought? An indigo kimono from this place called the Nankeen Exhibition Hall, in Shanghai. It’s a small shop that only sells clothing made with nankeen, an ancient Chinese textile. Who is your personal style hero? Miles Davis. Instagram or Twitter? Instagram. What are you reading? My Sister, the Serial Killer, by Oyinkan Braithwaite. Last great restaurant you ate at? Mugam Club Restaurant, in Baku, Azerbaijan. It’s in a 17th-century fortress. Get the ajapsandali eggplant (a traditional local family dish with tomatoes, garlic, and peppers). And the grilled lamb. How many unread…

corporate lunch

“YOU GOTTA HAVE STYLE,” Diana Vreeland once said. “Without it you’re nobody.” We can’t help but subscribe wholeheartedly to the former Vogue editor’s edict, and not only because she was a legendary author of corporate memos. It’s true that style is a sense of identity: something you try out, read about, think about, mull over, fine-tune, pursue, live, breathe—and, of course, talk about. Talking about style is the raison d’être of Corporate Lunch, GQ Style’s weekly podcast, but the pod is born of the fact that we are always doing all that other stuff, too. Hosted by style editor Noah Johnson, style writer Rachel Tashjian, and associate style editor Samuel Hine, Corporate Lunch is a bold and chill invitation to something between a high-powered trend-forecasting summit and One World Trade Center…

a calabasas encounter with steve lacy

OUT IN CALABASAS, AMID GOLDEN hills that roll the way California hills used to on the sides of old orange crates, there’s an Erewhon grocery store Steve Lacy likes to eat at. He pulls up one Monday in June in a battered black Kia Forte—“My high school bucket,” he says affectionately, before noting that he’s about to trade it in for something nicer—and beelines for the prepared-foods counter. “The hot bar is what you really come in here for,” he explains. He’s been mostly vegan lately; at Erewhon you can get a pile of Buffalo cauliflower and a few sides for a flat $14. “And I don’t have to wait for it,” Lacy says. “It’s the most healthy fast food you can get.” Lacy is only 21, barely five years into what…
