"The Rake" magazine

post #1 of 563
Thread Starter 
Just picked up a copy tonight, not sure if this is the first issue as I have never seen or heard?

Published by the same guys that do Revolution (mag about watches).

May do a review if it is worth it..

Anyone heard or read it?

Haven't heard of it. Does it have an ISBN on it?

Never heard of it, but the name sounds cool. Where is it published, in Asia?

Never read The Rake, but I'd go and recommend The Chap. A fine magazine (though not if one is just looking for style advice) and good read.

A Singapore-based fashion magazine?

I've seen other Singapore magazines like that before and I hope they're different.... good name though.

- I agree.. The mag was wrapped in plastic! If I had known I would have read cautiously..

I also grabbed this recently at Page One in Times Square. It looks to be the first issue. It seems interesting enough and it wasn't overly expensive.

Actually, that would be the EAN13 bar code. Magazines do not have ISBN numbers, they have 8-digit ISSN numbers which you'd probably find on the page that has names of staff etc - it should be 1793-7914 if my check digit calculation is correct (the 4 in the bar code is pricing information).

How does this compare to something like Leon?
