"The Rake" magazine - Page 35

post #511 of 563
Can only be bought overseas (China). Has some great stuff that we NEED in america

I ordered last year the first 10 issues. I was a bit disappointed with them, but I keep buying Esquire UK, Monsieur FR, GQ UK (very rarely,) L'Uomo Vogue (twice per year with the Fashion Guide) and occasionally Fantastic Man and Monocle. The new Port magazine is irrelevant concerning style.


I am thinking ordering the issues 11 and 12 from The Rake since they are available to order now. Are they any good?

Damn, I'm a small-timer.

I'm sure there's a fair bit of responder bias on income reporting.

I've been curious about this mag for a while now too.
might pick up a subscription one day.

Concensus seems to be The Rake is generally expensive and slightly haughty/pretentious without due cause, yes? Was thinking of getting a subscription, but not at that price if it isn't exceptional.

I posted on my blog a few days ago about the Rake. I think its one of the best men's style mags out there - eons ahead of anything published in the US. Read The Rake and then go through Esquire's Big Black Book and I think you'll find they're not even close.

For me personally, I think its down to The Rake and Men's Ex. If Men's Ex were in English, I'd say it was clearly the best. As it is, its pretty phenomenal just ogling the pics. I give the Rake a slight edge because I can enjoy the pics and the articles.

Just my two pennies

I read one issue (Kiton cover story) and was pretty underwhelmed. Some bits of useful information drowning in a sea of pretentiousness and overwrought text.

I enjoyed the Rake. Never subscribed, just picked up the old issues on B&S. Nobody has been selling any lately - if you are, I need the last 2 or 3 issues. PM me if you have.

If people can't afford to buy the magazine, don't bother looking at it. Cos what's inside is a lot more money.

for what its worth the articles aren't very insightful.... they are all basically complimentary.

Check with Shaya at exquisite trimmings, if I am understanding your question correctly.
