This has to be the best issue I've read from GQ. I have to commend you on the MOTY shortlist – it seems very thought out and you did homework on the candidates. The best part of the issue though, is the Cronulla riots article. For someone like me who doesn’t know much about what happened (having just arrived here in 2005), it’s well balanced, painfully honest and informative. Thank you for shedding light on offcer Craig Campbell's life. The man is an Australian idol in my eyes. Such an excellent piece of journalism which couldn’t have been published at a better time (when multiculturalism seems to threaten the harmonious existence of every city and nation). HUSHTON, VIA EMAIL Thanks Hushton. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed it.

What a brilliant issue. Your Men of the Year mag shows just how much fantastic talent we have in this country. Each of your award winners has achieved so much in 2015, and I couldn’t imagine a more deserving group of people. Well done, GQ. BRETT, VIA EMAIL
I’ve always had a lovehate relationship with Ruby Rose. Maybe it’s the tattoos that put me off, or the attitude she puts across. But maybe all that intertwined with her drive and determination for success is exactly what’s needed. Either way, she’s on the cover of GQ Australia, and for that, applause is in order.

She’s not always had the best relationship with Aussies, but it’s great to see her succeed – with a lot more to come.
My gorgeous man was also a GQ Man of the Year. I’m so lucky and massively proud of you Ryan Corr. KYLA BARTHOLOMEUSZ, VIA INSTAGRAM Always an honour to be on the cover of this great magazine. MICHAEL CLARKE, VIA TWITTER Ruby Rose looks so goddamn good in GQ Australia it physically hurts. BUZZFEED AUSTRALIA, VIA TWITTER Really, really, really honoured to have been named one of @Gqaustralia’s Men of the Year!!! Thank you, thank youuuuuu. TROYE SIVAN, VIA TWITTER
