    It's not a bad magazine. I posted about it in the "How Hong Kong is different thread".

    Last month they did a profile on Charvet, Trousers Fit and Brioni.

    The latest issue has a cover story on Cleverley shoes


    I just saw the latest issue. The story on Cleverley is great. The magazine is doing a great job on interviewing the best. So far, Anderson & Sheppard, Charvet, Brioni and now Cleverley.......

    This magazine should be sold all over the world.

    Isn't the issue including the A&S writeup the second? I think I still have it somewhere... I'll take a look...

    I think the third edition is out. I will look at my last copy.

    Articles are bit short, but not bad. The piece on the A&S cut contains some mistakes, but it's quite interesting nonetheless.

    Could you tell us what are the mistakes?

    Does anyone know where one can get this magazine in New York? I am sure it is sold somewhere.......

    The last issue was the third edition and it had an eight page article on Cleverley. A very nice read. Plus, the Get Carter article was great!

    I just got three copies of this. It is stunningly beautiful and must cost a fortune to produce. The photography is as good as professional work anywhere. The content is great, if not always what I personally am into. Still, it is miles ahead of anything else out there.

    I think I know the real reason Anderson was afraid to visit Cruise in his hotel room. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyone have a copy of the A&S issue that they are willing to part with?

    It's on the website and I saw it somewhere else once as a PDF. Edit Here is the PDF. It's very high Q and much better than what is on The Rake's own site. Cheers to ACL. http://acontinuouslean.com/2009/05/1...view-the-rake/

    Actually, if you ask nicely (i.e. kiss ass), they will probably send you pdfs of the article you want. The editor sent me a pdf of the article on Shanghai tailor Eddie Chow even before it went to print.

    Even sent me recently a complimentary copy of Issue 4, a few days after I bought it off the local newstand.

    The Rake magazine is now available to buy in the UK through Lodger. Only previously available for retail in Hong Kong and Singapore, Lodger is now selling issue 4 from its store on Clifford Street, London.

    The Rake costs £10, with issue 4 dedicated to British heritage and style, including features on Tommmy Nutter, John Lobb, Foster & Son, Turnbull & Asser and Chittleborough & Morgan.

    This new issue appears to have a profile on the late homosexualist dandy, Bunny Roger.

    I wonder if they included pictures from the auction of his effects.
