New In Style Editor: Ariel Foxman

While we don't learn too much more than what we already knew (denials that it had anything to do with Men's Vogue; Condé cockteased secured a loan for EIC Ariel Foxman to buy an apartment just last spring), there's some telling quotage from Foxman just hours after he was thrown out of his home.

Like pigeon shit dropping from the sky, the following internal email from deliciously hot but not-on-your-team Cargo editor Ariel Foxman appeared in our mailbag. It's a little murky but, best as we can tell, it would seem that Cargo is in the planning stages for their special Fall Fag Issue:
