Why InStyle MEN?

InStyle MEN is the essential style guide for men: Here you can find out everything about fashion, beauty and the most popular lifestyle news – naturally with the style of the stars. The magazine is aimed at the "normal" man who is interested in fashion and cosmetics but who isn't an expert.
InStyle MEN will initially appear in a bundle together with InStyle, making it an unmissable, extra-thick style package for HIM and HER. InStyle MEN will then be available at the newsstand for a further month as a stand-alone.
THE STYLE OF THE STARS – FOR MEN!

InStyle MEN is the consequent extension of InStyle‘s core competence: fashion service and orientation! Within 140 pages, InStyle MEN presents everything one must know about fashion, beauty and lifestyle.

InStyle MEN is directed especially at readers who are interested in fashion but also to female InStyle fans who want to share their passion for the latest trends with their partners.

Please feel free to contact me anytime, should you require further details or wish to receive a copy in the post.

Best Regards

After some to-ing and fro-ing including some telephone conversations, I agreed to send him some gear.  Anyway, he stopped communicating with me, so I got in touch with InStyle's head office.

The response:

Dear Giles,

I am very shocked to hear about that. There is no InStyle Men in France, and there was never a plan to do so. This guy is just a liar and  as I said, I am really shocked that somebody is using our brand to steal clothes.
I put our Parisian correspondence Inna Fischbuch in cc, that she is informed that someone is acting like that.

I am very sorry to say, but as we have nothing to do with this request, we can not refund any clothes. But what we can do: publish your label (this time for sure!) in our upcoming issue (october issue).

For further questions, please do not hesitate to call me.

Best, Kerstin

At least you got scammed by an above average dick hole.  That's... comforting?

(really sorry to hear this, as I am every time you get screwed)

Has anyone had any run-ins with a Jason Barlow from Washington, DC?  I feel like he's actively trying to scam me right now through an eBay purchase of an IHSH-33.  He's made some idle threats and doesn't seem to want to go through eBay's official channels to arrange any sort of agreement and everything about it seems shady.
