Sit­ting here read­ing GQ, the morn­ing of my wed­ding day – my suit is laid out, my shoes pol­ished, I have se­lected the right watch, and I’ve writ­ten my speech. I think I’m ready. As I read your ‘25 Places to Eat Drink Travel Ex­plore’ fea­ture, I saw num­ber 1

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ - BEN, VIA EMAIL

Read­ing GQ the morn­ing of your wed­ding? It’s enough to warm our cold, dead hearts. We’ve al­ready locked in Chris Hemsworth as our Man of the Year, but we have to say you’re a close sec­ond, Ben.

I’ve been read­ing fashion mag­a­zines from around the globe for a while, but I have to say the qual­ity of GQ Aus­tralia, the write-ups, the top­ics cov­ered and the peo­ple in­ter­viewed is ab­so­lutely top class. Prob­a­bly the dis­tinct fea­ture that sets it apart is the fashion cov­ered in the mag is ac­tu­ally wear­able, even for a con­ser­va­tive banker like me. The more I read, the more I can’t wait for the next edi­tion to come out.

Yet an­other beardie on the cover? Is GQ Aus­tralia just for hip­sters now?

Good spot! Don’t for­get to pick up our next is­sue, for GQ’S roundup of the best free-range, fair-trade, sin­gle-ori­gin, cold-brew, fixed-gear type­writ­ers. Not to be missed. Great cover @Gqaus­tralia! And lov­ing that leather biker!

Glad you liked it. The jacket is cour­tesy of Gucci.

I tuned in to see GQ Aus­tralia on that new ABC show Man Up and I couldn’t stop watch­ing. Such grip­ping TV – and good to see you sign­ing on for a great cause.

Thanks Trevor – it was an hon­our to take part. For those who haven’t yet seen Gus Wor­land’s pow­er­ful three-part se­ries about male sui­cide, do your­self a favour and head to manup.org.au.

Re­ally en­joyed the Hacksaw Ridge fea­ture. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Mel Gib­son, but he seems like a guy who’s gen­uinely try­ing to make amends. Mak­ing great Aussie films doesn’t for­give what he’s done – at least it’s a start.

Je­sus. Milo Yiannopou­los. What a dick.

DAVE, VIA TWIT­TER

Your words, not ours, Dave. (But you’re right.)

I ab­so­lutely love Tom Ford and it was so good to hear from the man him­self. Such an in­ter­est­ing guy!
