On the internet, there are an incredible number of places that one interested in the lifestyle of dressing well can read.
Simon Crompton’s Permanent Style or The Style Forum are two with enough information to keep one occupied for a year. However, the rise of online media, in many ways, has exposed the a quality divide between true, high-quality reporting and writing supported by print and that demanded by the fast-pace of electronic publishing.
When I discovered The Rake, it was like discovering a magazine that revealed everything I disliked about current print magazines and online blogs by providing contrast. The Rake is an incredible magazine written by the well-dressed for the well-dressed. But not the Robb Report or GQ variety, more like the gentleman race car driver, vintage wine-drinking type that lives somewhere out of the limelight.
Published out of Singapore, the subscription to The Rake is not cheap at $125 per annum. However, given that each of the 5 annual issues are FedEx’ed right to your doorstep, they probably spend that much or more just on shipping. Everything about The Rake is as well-tailored as the bespoke masterpieces that grace their cover stories. From the writing, selection of stories, photography, to the look and feel of the actual publication. This is not just a mere magazine, but an bookshelf-quality piece worthy of archive (for Christmas last year I purchased every back issue I did not already own).
The Hanger Project does not make even a dime off of each issue we sell. However, my enjoyment of this publication compels me to promote it to my customers for no reason other that I hope you all are able to find the same level of enjoyment in reading each issue as I.
