In addition to hailing the new America on its cover, British GQ Style features an Americana-inspired editorial under the name 'The United State' in its Spring/Summer 2009 issue.

A fusion of gangs of New York and West Side Story, with a bit of the cool James Dean style and sensibility, this black and white editorial by photographer Guzman features models Tyler Riggs, Callum Turner, Zach Ferry, Oliver Cheshire and Madeline Kragh.

The models were styled by Jo Levin in retro-chic outfits that complemented the look and gave it an authentic vibe. Stats for Retro NY Gang Editorials Trending: Older & Mild
