    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?

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

    - Page One @ Times Square in HKG

    - Asia (SIN of all places..)
    FWIW http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...light=the+rake
    - yes this is it, there is an article on A&S amongst other things.. So far, lot's of advertorial (as expected with any maiden publication) & lot's of helicopter view articles on clothing.. I think the title sounds better than the actual content.. Will give it another go over brunch.

    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? [​IMG]

    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.

    9 771793 791406

    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).
