The September Issues

September is a big month in the print world of menswear. It sets the tone for the following season (and, effectively, the remainder of the year).

It also means the page counts are at their bulkiest—so many woolen things, so little time. And in our continued dedication to sussing it all out, we’ve thumbed through the 1,000-plus pages (we’ve thrown in the bonus round of Vanity Fair since they’ve weighed in on the year’s best-dressed men) just for you.

Let’s dig into the September issues, shall we...»

A High Bar, Vice Presidential Watches, and Sherlock Holmes

Passing the Bar: Our favorite Israeli supermodel has inexplicable difficulty getting into the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. [NYPost]

Biden, Joe Biden: Omega watches are just one more thing James Bond and our Vice President have in common. [Luxist]

Solid Gold: Speedo is standing by Michael Phelps after Kellogg’s dropped him over the bong-laden snapshots. Doritos should jump on this. [The Cut]

Elementary: The Times is not happy about the state of Sherlock, but anyone who refers to “The Real Sherlock Holmes” with a straight face has earned a link or two. [The Moment]

Aquaman, Golfers, and Seductive Lawn Care

Oh Sarah: Esquire gets to know *Alias*’s Sarah Shahi. [Ohnotheydidn’t]

Wages of Win: Aquaman Michael Phelps is using his fame to steal female resources from Australia. Well played, sir. [Gawker]

Flags of our Golfers: Yet another travesty-heavy ad campaign. Strangely enough, for golf this time. [Copyranter]

Green Thumb: Esquire’s tips for seduction via lawn care. Oddly, they don’t mention avoiding manure. [Esquire]
