Sorry, it's gone and I've decided not to do this anymore. Cheers.

For those in Singapore, is the magazine available at Borders or Kinokuniya? If so I'll just ask my brother to buy it there for me.

Yes at both, you can even get it at Carrefour Plaza Singapura.

Seen it at Prologue at ION too.

Shall we resurrect that famous thread? GazMan?

My magazine already showed up today in pristine condition. I'm only half way thru it, and definitely very impressed.

Thanks again Chobochobo. You got PM.

You mean that epic thread about Singapore being the cesspool of sartorial hell? The Singapore Sartorial Index is at an all time low, now that GShen is in Finland (Finland's Sartorial Index is up a notch). Note that the Sartorial Index does not count Wei Koh, the editorial director and founder, and frequent contributor, Peter Chong, of The Rake. They are outliers and therefore non-representative data points of the population. Their inclusion would add a systemic bias to the Index.
I think our friend Mafanfoo would die for issue #5. Besides Luca posing with several rather attractive lingerie clad models there is also a photo of Luca's twin sister with a rather low cut top with ample milky white cleavage showing.

Thanks to Chips and mercretas for their generosity. I'm going to open this up again, but on a limited basis - when #6 hits the shelves I shall buy 5 copies, in addition to the two already reserved, and then that's it. It'll will be the same as the subscription price 22 usd shipped (personal payment please) - full disclosure: I make a massive 3 something usd on each copy at this price. I've also seen some copies of #5 in independent shops that I guess don't clear their shelves so quickly. Anyone who wants a copy, pm me and I'll see if they're are still there. 22 usd bucks also.

Pm sent, if it's not too late again.

I selected US, then wrote Canada in the address box and sent them an email. It worked out fine.

How long does the damn thing take to arrive? I ordered a subscription and back issue 2 3 and 4 about three weeks ago.


Mine took exactly three weeks from the day they shipped.

I just ordered issue 2 from their website. How long is this going to take?
I live in the Netherlands.

Issue 6 is out, at least in the rake's home town. Has Diego Della Valle on the cover. I also think the photoshoots in this issue have improved and are much more editorial than in the past. They are also featuring hotter chicks.
