OK, I'm back with part three of the (almost) complete scan of GQ's fab teen mag from 1967. This first spread is exciting because it starts off with an article on pirate radio in the UK by the late, lamented science fiction genius Thomas M. Disch:
How did this article end up in a teen mag? My guess is that Disch most likely submitted it to Esquire and it ended up in the slush pile used for this publication. This is a rare treat, though, because I'm pretty sure this has never been reprinted. It's interesting to think that he probably wrote this while working on his tour de force, Camp Concentration. Here's the rest along with still another guitar ad:
And here we have some dubious advice for teen boys and some polyester socks:
More advice and stamp collecting paraphernalia:
An ad for a pretty great looking shirt and an article on excercise:
Two spreads of expensively-produced ads with tricky spot-coloring for Kodel polyester and more of the exercise article, now featuring a fairly hunky model in great shorts:
I LOVE the clothes in this ad. I would fight somebody for those plaid wool pants. These are for adolescents, but I would wear everything shown here:
I'm telling you, those outfits would look right at home in a Billy Reid boutique right now. Here's a funny ad featuring the Monkees and... I'm sorry to say... two missing pages and the conclusion of an article on, I think, payola:
Finally, a proper fashion spread, and it's no disappointment. These are sensational outfits, cut just like menswear is cut today, against fabulous "surrealist" backgrounds:
These are beautful clothes. Bring back windowpane plaid, please:
This is a funny feature: an article featuring both fashion and music. It's advice on what your fledgling rock combo should wear to get laughed out of the Fillmore:
As good as the previous fashion spread was, these outfits aren't doing it for me:
Wait, the singer is now the drummer. Versatile!
There's more to come! I'll try to finish scanning this surprisingly thick magazine this weekend.
Recap: part one, part two, part three, part four, part five.
