@smittycl , what do you read on the net? I am looking for some new content

Is WM Brown worth the price? No snark, just asking. Back issues and subscriptions seem pretty steep.
I think WM Brown is worth the price. the writing is decent if very short in form. The Rake has shifted to just making money off their store now I think. Just a poolside read for me doing more looking than reading. Some of the articles are interesting I guess.

I don't read too much style stuff on the Net beyond SF, puthison, Derek's site, Dirnelli, and such. My Twitter feed picks up some menswear stuff too. Business of Fashion, NYT Fashion, etc. No real secret content sites, just the normal stuff.

Yes, I think this is mostly normal for Europe.

Here’s a fun story (ymmv) I once ordered a custom tie from Drakes in October. Expecting it early December. I asked for the hand rolled edge. Apparently, there was (at least at the time) ONE person at drakes that did the hand rolled edges. And that Friday was their day to work on custom orders. Mon-Thurs was normal Drakes production. Due to a mix up, my order didn’t get placed until Nov. Then, the one hand rolled takes off all of December! So I got my tie in late January.



I have similar question. I long ago gave up on GQ, and Esquire. Although I hung with Esquire for a while, but have since given up

I agree, it's pricey. I started off by getting the back issues to see if I'd like it. I think The Bloke out of LA had issues on sale, which helped. It was just so clearly multiple cuts above any other men's lifestyle magazine, and I think it's worth supporting stuff like that since it's so rare anyway. My girlfriend likes the recipes, too.

Anyone know if WM Brown mag is available at any bookstores? Just want to flip through it to see the contents before committing to a yearly subscription

Confused about their subscription
Says $90 every 12 months. Does it mean I get one magazine per year?

It's usually at the register at mashburn.

I think they are bi-monthly like the Rake. Covid has screwed stuff up, though.

Vhat about videos of Kraft?
We were going off on those videos in another thread a while back. Fok was making fun of Kraft's punching while running schtick.

Err, it's three times a year I think. Works out to $30/issue.
Oops. I had it wrong. It is pricey. Me do good math someday....
