    1. Don't judge too easily. Baka naman may directives from US na dapat ang local version ay same ang peg sa kanila.

    2. Tama! Baka ganun nga! I think walang masama kasi parehong magazine, local version nga lang. IMO.

      Delete
    3. This is really a copy. Kasi Esquire's mother publication in the US had approved them. I had a little research about this yesterday because of one comment I read in one previous article this week. Wag na kayo magalit. Hayaan niyo na magfeeling sila JLC and Iza na hollywood stars sila :D

    4. so you mean dapat me mahalungkat din tayong esquire na published sa ibang nations looking like that?

    6. Iza's cover was an ode to angelica's classic cover, it was done on purpose. And jlc's cover is a dime a dozen.

    10. If I were one of the creative team of the US Esquire, I'll be totally be pissed. Their ideas are being recycled every time. And another thing is, we readers are being short changed in a way. Also, Esquire is just a new magazine here in the Philippines, I hope they will have their own identity so they could last like other magazines here.

    1. baka kasi utos sa kanila?

    2. Hindi siya utos. It's allowed but it's not directed. Kung gusto ng Philippines version maki-ride sa ideas ng US version, pwede. Isipin nyo na lang parang common library ng mga Esquire concept. Pero ibig sabihin nun, kumokopya talaga ang Pinas edition, pinapayagan lang talaga ng US. Kaya agree ako kay anon 12:11, wala na bang ibang idea?

    4. tama...hindi magkapag-establish ng sariling identity ang esquire phl dahil it seems they we're not allowed to decide kung ano ang gusto nila. hindi talaga papayag ang mga puti na masapawan sila ni juan dela cruz. just a waste of talent!

    3. Si Bekimond may kasalanan

    4. pano naman napasok ang US colony ang Pinas sa magazine. Reminder, it's a local counterpart so there's a big possibility that the magazine received a directive on what should be the format of the cover of the magazine.

  17. I guess pinapattern lang ng Esquire ang mga covers nila. Nagkataon lang siguro na halos magkapareha ang mga covers. Siguro kung ganto tas magkaibang mag, malamang sa malang eh sampahan na naman ng kaso to. Kaya pala nung nakita ko ang JLC version sabi ko bakit may kamukha. Kay RDJ pala.

  21. it is very apparent, there is not even an iota of doubt regarding it, that the striking similarities were not meant to be an homage to the mother/original American publication. On the contrary, this is a pathetic attempt on the end of pseudo-creative directors who are at best faux aesthetes purveying a delusional sense of cosmopolitanism. such repetitious and common passing off of foreign publications' designs as our own (which is not only limited to layout, cover designs, and magazine format but also extends to our fashion industry) makes one wonder what this obsession with all things foreign & offshore is all about.

  26. nubayan ang daming nega. Sana bago magcomment iniintindi muna. Its the same magazine - us & phil versions nga lang. franchise yung dito and if you look at all other magazines that are franchised ganyan din. Even the content may pareho, meron lang na binabago para bumagay sa taste ng pinoy readers. you cant blame the publisher, creative directors and the editor in chief because they get directives from their US counterparts. Shempre the US heads would still have creative control coz they have to protect their brand.

  31. hindi co-incidence yung pagkaka pareho ng covers anoh!! walang ganyan!! eto lang: wala silang originality, para magz cover lang nanggaya pa! ka-cheapan!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Simple lang. If US required the Philippine Esquire to follow the general idea of the US covers, that's not a good practice. It's quelling the individuality/creativity of the Philippine editors/stylists/photographers/etc. If the Philippine Esquire is not required to follow the US covers, then that doesn't speak well of the Philippine Esquire's staff/editors' originality. Either way, it's not good.

  40. I think it is alright for Esquire Philippine to "copy" or take inspiration from the mother company. After all, same franchise lang naman sila. Worse kung ang kinokopya nila ay yung sa competitor na magazine. In franchising or licensing, pwede ka mag standardize or adapt. In this case, they adapted with local celebrities doing the same style.

  44. Just because you are allowed to copy doesn't mean you should do it. It leaves a bad taste. JLC and Iza are goodlooking people but their copycat covers made them look like the generic, dollar store version of the original. I can't imagine the US photo editors telling Erwin Romulo, "Psst, just copy this Angelina Jolie draped in silk for your chosen coverstory, it's ok no one will find out, it was done in 2007, Filipinos have short memory."

    ReplyDelete
  45. Esquire mag is known for their iconic covers but they also recycle their own or someone else's concept. They recreated the iconic Virna Lisi's 1965 "beard shaving" cover on Jessica Simpson. They also took the same stock image of Barrack Obama's Time Cover from the same photographer.

  65. Utos yan n Mother Ship, anobakayyoh. Kasi nga,---- pa ang market sa Philippines tulad nyo na mapang-husga.

  69. Raymond isn't the EIC of Esquire, Erwin Romulo is. Raymond is their style editor.

    And coming from the same industry, I do agree that copying the exact poses and colors/elements is tacky. However, magazines do get inspiration from other magazines. It's just a matter of adding a twist to the inspiration that should be practiced more often. That way, Pinoy mags won't be branded as copy cats.

    ReplyDelete
  70. IF EVER THEY ARE REQUIRED TO COPY, THEN I HAVE TO COMMEND GAYMOND FOR DOING A GREAT JOB. IF NOT, WELL I THINK NANANADYA YANG MGA YAN PARA UMINGAY AT MAGING CONTROVERSIAL ANG PHILIPPINE VERSION NG ESQUIRE NILA. LOL WOUKD U AGREE??

  72. kasi local publishers have to get the approval of the original, foreign publisher for their cover. kung mareject yong cover dahil hindi feel ng Esquire US, the mag will be delayed. so para wala ng problems, they just imitate previous covers.

  73. esquire is a regional magazine.. kaya usually regional
    din ang creative inputs, nagkakaiba lang sa models and write ups.. bakit na ba may mga taong "may masabi lang" sabihin nyong ginaya kng cosmo US cover tapos esquire ph eh pareho! common sense lang.. well i should know dahil nagwork din ako sa ad agency..

  75. The first cover with the girl in a bikini wasn't really a copy. That pose has been done over and over again in different magazine. The other two though...whoa...super copya! In fairness, mas risque pa yung kay Iza kasing kay Angelina.

    ReplyDelete
  76. In what I observe, this is a tactic para umingay ang magazine nila. Kasi kung hindi nila gusto ipaalam na nanggaya or nag adapt sila, then dapat hindi na nangyari sa sumunod na cover. Naka tatlo na silang "adaptation". So, this is really a tactic and I think effective kasi maraming nag-aalburuto. Oh well, negative publicity is still a publicity.

  80. The problem is even if youre already caught cheating or copying, people still think it's ok and even justify it. No accountability. Stop making lousy excuses for them, it's obvious that the ideas were copied. :(

  82. Hindi po totoong required silang gayahin ang US version. There's a reason kung bakit ganyan ang pose ni Jennifer Lawrence. Kasama yun sa cover story. I don't think pareho sila ni Georgina ng cover story. Same goes dun sa iba. They are allowed but not required.
    Hindi porke't pwede ibig sabihin dapat gawin mo. Parang ang bad taste kasi nakikita mo ang comparison. Parang generic pharmacy ang dating ng local version tapos yung US Mercury Drug.

  84. To set things straight, local editions of international or U.S. based magazines like Esquire are strictly as in strictly monitored by the mother management of the magazines. They do this in order to ensure that local editions adhere to the quality, look, feel, reportorial style of their international counterpart. Understandably, strict monitoring and compliance are just some of the measures being done by the mother management in order to protect the interest and reputation of their international magazine.

    Covers included in this item are not mere copycats. Rather, they are local versions inspired by international covers.

    1. thank you! that's what i was thinking, but you explained it so well. local versions inspired by intl covers. and if they want to do something totally different from that, then well and good. if they're going to do a generic version, then that's that.

  87. These are direct copies...which mean that the locals have no talent, no imagination and no originality.

  92. let's face it. copy cat naman lagi dito sa pinas. Movies pa lang nga e. Kaya humihina ang movie industry. Old movies have more substance and originality. Sa music scene naman panay remake... hay

  93. Bonga lng ng talent ni gaymund at lizzy- copycat executives! only in da philippines...! Kaya di nabebenta ang mga magazines puro back issue

  94. Management was made aware that there should be similarities in terms of the concept or inspiration so we shouldn't overreact. Even before we've seen what we called "the copy cat" covers, they've of course, unblinkingly reviewed & noticed the similarities before presenting to the public. They're under the same umbrella so it's perfectly fine. We can call it a real Scanner if the covers are for another mag,

  97. ay si liz uy ba? eew. she's so gross, kahit anong gawin nia. we don't know if this is just a ruse from esquire itself. do you actually know what's going within their memos? baka mamaya clever ruse nga, kze tingnan mo, pinaguusapan ngayon.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I don't see anything wrong in the similarities. The one with Iza on the cover was tastefully done, an ode to Angelina's gorgeous cover. Baka nga naman nagpaalam ang Pinas na kokopyahin nila and Esquire US agreed.
