Yeah, give it a try. Especially for that kind of a deal. It's too bad that The Rake is so expensive for international subscriptions. After getting it priced locally off newsstands I was surprised at the cost. Fortunately they do have some articles on their website for free.

Well, given the price tag and it not being readily available in my area, I ordered the digital version for $38.50 - 6 issue subscription.

It's been a while since I have picked up an issue of Details magazine. I can remember not being blown away by it. Does anyone have any opinions on what Details is doing these days?

Out of choices a couple months ago I tried Details maybe twice, it was a complete non-starter for me.......

Please let us know how that is, I am going to try and find a hard copy this weekend just to give it a look.

Did you play around on Mr. Porter yet like on the part where you can switch from product view to outfit view? I get some pretty good ideas there. If I start with something that I want to key off in my closet then find it on Mr. Porter and look at the ways they show it, you can really get some great ideas and solve some questions.

I did look at it a little bit the other day. I will definitely explore it more although I do seem to enjoy publications more than retail sites.

I completely agree ^^^ I only rely on it right now because of the void we find ourselves in right now with the state of publishing. The pendulum has swung to far, as it always does. Someone will come in to fill the gap. When they do hopefully someone here will make us all aware of it. Peace gentlemen, it is 1 am in my work world right now, so I am off.

So, I took the digital version of The Rake for a test drive and it is actually pretty nice. I was hesitant because I am a magazine hoarder, but it really is convenient to just bring it up on your laptop, iPad, or whatever. It takes up no space at all, loading is easy, and the clarity of the pictures are spot on. I also like the fact that you can zoom in on the pictures, so you can really pick up details.

On a side note, I like the fact that you can translate Leon on Google. Makes the reading much easier.

a good point on translate, that issue and its easy fix did not occur to me before. Gives a point toward the online idea for sure.

Owing to the fact that you can now download a free digital issue of The Rake, I think I also may give the digital edition a try. I've gotten more used to reading things on electronic devices like my iPad so this might be an interesting experiment.

this is probably a stupid question, but where are you finding them for free? (i looked to no avail.)

In the tabs on the top of the page titled "digital". It gives you instructions on how to DL it.

Love this thread. I am tempted to subscribe to The Rake but it is a bit expensive, I'm sure I'll give in eventually though...

 

Re Esquire, I had a subscription when I was in the US, I think I got it for free somehow... I think I read about 5 pages in a good issue, I did enjoy smelling the cologne on the pages though!
