    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I just wanted to say I got the first few issues of my subscription and I truly love this magazine. The articles are great and very imformative, this is one magazine in which I will keep all my issues.

    So I read thru all 10+ page of this thread.

    I already have a monthly subscription to Men's Ex. Though I cannot read a single word of Japanese I find the magazine quite useful for just the pictures. I keep all the copies in my library.

    Is the Rake really going to add that much more to my enjoyment?

    I thinking about going for the two year subscription plus all the available back issues. Any chance this magazine may fold and I'm out of my money? [​IMG]

    The Rake has a very different perspective than Men's Ex. There is very little crossover yet both are high quality for different reasons. Go for it.

    recently rec'd two more back issues I ordered several weeks ago-- each one better than the next (article on blue blazers was pretty cool).

    Question-- has anyone else bought anything they saw in the rake, or plan to? I liked a pair of thurston braces so much from one of the photo spreads I ordered a set, and have a mind to MAYBE see Tim Everest during a USA visit to talk about that awesome tux he did for the magazine-- if they will split up the cost for me (half up front, half upon completion)

    FWIW... Just so we can put a face to the name, the gentleman on the right is Wei Koh, founder of The Rake. (The gentleman on the left is Nick Foulkes.) [​IMG] I believe the shirt he is wearing may have made an appearance or at least been mentioned before - in the Charvet article IIRC. I have enjoyed nearly every article I have read in The Rake, and have just signed up for a 2 year subscription.

    I do not think it (Wei Koh's jacket) is a Rubinacci. Italian, almost certainly; Rubinacci, no. I agree though, nice jacket. [​IMG]

    I called into the Lodger in London yesterday and they said that they haven't received #6 yet as there were issues with postage from Singapore.

    Really helpful guys though - they offered to post it to Ireland at cost whenever it arrives.
