Men’s Style No More.

July 21, 2009
Another day, another major magazine move. What with our being in the midst of fiscal catastrophe print media seems to be suffering more than ever before. Just a few months back Arena was suddenly shuttered and prior to that we had the not-so-lametable demotion of Men’s Vogue to a biannual supplement. Now, we bid farewell to Men’s Style.

No, I’m not on the cusp of launching into a reverent homage to the online publication in the vein of Nigel‘s adoration of Runway from The Devil Wears Prada, but I am going to ask why the hell Condé Nast insists on creating online versions of its print magazines when it could just mesh them together to form a formidable fashion resource? I know posts coverage of collections and the usual news titbits but what of the often uproarious, often questionable but always inspiring “The Week in Style” features? What of those swell “So-and-so’s 10 essentials”?

I know it’s currently paramount that companies cost-cut to save their arses but seriously, could the Condé Nast capitalists please consider their audience before their advertising clients for once? K, going to stop here before I breach Nigel-esque “shining beacon of hope” territory…
