ISSUE NO. 7 "ON MASCULINITIES"

Whether modern masculinity is a construct, and men’s fashion a tool intended to keep the wheels of consumption turning is one of the questions raised in this issue of Vestoj. But it also aims to explore the making of masculinities and the experience of men’s bodies, as well as how people who identify as masculine are portrayed along with how they choose to portray themselves, both in public and in private. It looks at how we express masculinity through appearance, and how changes in fashion have been influenced by a perception of gender constantly in flux. Its asks why blue is for boys, how machismo affects fashion and why it’s so hard to shake the whiff of absurdity that stubbornly clings to male pin-ups.
