Obsessed with Filati Magazine--Anybody know how I can get my hands on a copy?

Hi everybody,
I'm a first time poster, sort of a novice knitter (I've been knitting for about a year). I'm always on the prowl for fashion-forward men's patterns and today ran across something called Filati magazine online...

In a roundabout way, I discovered this magazine exists when I visited lanagrossa.com. I was thrilled to see that they publish a men's special; it looks like once per year. There are images of the patterns contained in each issue and the patterns shown in issue 6, the current issue, are fantastic.
Now, I'm on a quest to get my hands on a copy of this magazine. But I can't find it! The problem is this is a German publication but looks like they release a version in English as well. I found two of the five past issues at yarnmarket.com but haven't had any luck finding an English version of volume 6.
Can anybody help me out? Suggestions? Does anyone subscribe to this magazine? If so, does the subscription include the "special" men's issues?

Those magazine look great. I just tried German ebay and there is a copy there.

I bought issue 5 in english from www.knittingknitch.com a few weeks ago. They don't have issue 6 listed on their website, but you may want to email them for availability. Issue 5 is full of beautiful men's items.

The wonderful and talented Evelyn at Knitty Noddy usually has some in stock and if you have a special request she'll work like the dickens to get it for you. Truly, she's fantastic . . . just tell her what you're looking for and if it can be found, she'll find it. Here's a link to the issues she currently has in stock:
