To Our Read­ers

Thailand Tatler - - CONTENTS - —Napha­lai Areesorn Ed­i­tor-in-Chief

Thai­land tatler is a lux­ury life­style mag­a­zine that doesn’t take sides—we are gen­der friendly with in­ter­est­ing pieces and thought­ful con­tent that all sexes can en­joy. That said though, we know we can be guilty of some­times lean­ing too much to­wards the fe­male side, and that is why, once a year, we present our men’s is­sue. This usu­ally falls in Oc­to­ber.

When we think of con­tent for the gen­tle­men, it used to be that we would go for the more ma­cho-type sub­jects such as cars and watches, ad­ven­ture sports and fash­ion for men to fea­ture. How­ever, nowa­days much that you would present in a women’s mag­a­zine reads just as well in a men’s is­sue. This in­cludes beauty and makeup for men as well as re­la­tion­ship is­sues. Fash­ion for the mas­cu­line sex has moved be­yond trousers and shorts to skirts and even more var­ied of­fer­ings.

The lines be­tween men and women are blur­ring fast. When I was grow­ing up, girls were told they could only play with dolls and toy ovens and for boys it was cars and guns. To­day it no longer mat­ters and hardly any­one blinks an eye. Men thank­fully now work at jobs that used to be re­served for the women (and vice versa). A good ex­am­ple of how many coun­tries now of­fer equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to all, in many Euro­pean na­tions both moth­ers and fa­thers can take parental leave when they have a child.

But I di­gress. Get­ting back to our men’s is­sue, our cover presents jew­eller turned en­tre­pre­neur Suriyon Sriorathaikul. This is a man who knows what the ladies want, whether it be beau­ti­ful jewel ac­ces­sories, glit­ter­ing evening bags or the lat­est beauty prod­ucts. We also fea­ture five lads who are sneaker ob­sessed. So it’s not only the ladies who build up huge footwear col­lec­tions, with many men spend­ing as much, if not more, on their favourite pairs of shoes. Fi­nally we get to the Moto GP, the first time that Thai­land is host­ing a leg of the big­gest mo­tor­cy­cle race se­ries in the world. Enough for the guys out there to get their adrenalin go­ing.

Whether male, fe­male or oth­er­wise, we hope you find this is­sue a di­vert­ing read.
