These days, the best/easiest way to get fashion-famous on the internet is to be anonymous—see, for example, @NoBtotheS. Today, GQ.com interviews another nameless web-celeb (web-collective?), the folk(s) behind Fuck Yeah Menswear—that stream-of-consciousness brilliance that waxes poetic about, what else, menswear, the men's blogging inner circle, and the cult of guys who like nice stuff. Some of the best questions and answers from the interview:
GQ: Should a man have any other hobbies besides looking fresh and blogging about it?· Seven questions for Fuck Yeah Menswear [GQ.com]
FYMW: Yeah, you want to diversify your activities. Throw in macking on bomb dot com broads and you've pretty much pinned down what I do on the reg.
GQ: What's crispy in the streets these days as far as you're concerned? Which brands are coming correct with the steez? Which are faking the funk?
FYMW: First off, can we officially dead "faking the funk" for good? I'm going on record, "fuck outta here with that bullshit". I'll say this, if you need to ask what's crispy in the streets or who is coming correct with steez then there is a good chance you stay losing.
GQ: Favorite Wes Andy movie? Least favorite?
FYMW: I only watch Face/Off. The epitome of steez is Nick Cage's face. No homme-o.
