Vogue Hommes A Fashion Magazine For Men Or Women?

My curiosity was seriously teased when I saw this cover for Vogue Men Japan. I’m now bringing it before you to judge and tell if men magazines are for Men or Women!

Looking at this photo (taken by Steven Klein and styled by Nicola Formichetti) with Travis Hanson in a somewhat stripping pole routine I wonder which straight man will buy this issue just because of the cover? Unless this particular Vogue issue targets the gay audience out there, Vogue Hommes is a fashion magazine for women? (photo via)

Ah, why not? We women buy magazines that makes me often wonder if the shoots were not meant to be to turn men on?
Though maybe this one is for die-hard fashion freaks and real men (ahum) buy GQ?

Turn about is fair play I will say. :)
I only buy or look at the men’s fashion magazines if they have a man on the cover or an article that I am interested in.

What a cover!!

I personally don’t buy men’s fashion magazine but I read some of my friends who are real and gay men.

Ellington, real men buy GQ or details and they probably don’t buy this Vogue Homme. You must have be like really into fashion.

I personally don’t know any straight men who buy these kind of fashion magazines. There’s only one exception – when my boyfriend sent me L’uomo Vogue (Men’s Italian Vogue) while I was living in Japan, thinking it was the regular Italian Vogue. That was an expensive mistake, hehe.
