By Colin Chapman on May 15th, 2009

These are difficult days for glossy fash magazines. So with that in mind, here’s a mag you may not be aware of yet and a favourite that’s recently evolved into an online zine.

The Rake is a new men’s glossy, launched recently straight out of Singapore. As if the Dutch publishing hotbed established by Fantastic Man and Butt magazines hadn’t thrown us enough of a geographic curveball, here comes a classy mag out of one of Asia’s most famous shopping meccas (but one not previously noted for a cerebral take on fashion).

Not dissimilar to Fantastic Man, in its pursuit of sartorial elegance and a certain timeless, gentlemanly aesthetic, The Rake enters the market at a difficult time but with quite a special voice. Read A Continuous Lean‘s interview with Rake editor Christian Barker here.

Real men wear denim shirts

By Colin Chapman on January 6th, 2009

The latest Buck magazine hit the stands last Friday and amongst its Gallic-themed pages is a great piece on the importance of denim this S/S. Highlighting the same Acne/Lanvin collaboration I’ve been talking about here recently it seems that there’s nothing to stop a full on indigo revolution once the sun finally breaks out.

Thing is: don’t limit yourself to jeans. Denim or chambray … there are so many ways to go blue aside from the obvious. My tip: try mixing denim into a formal outfit. A fitted denim shirt looks great with a knitted or chunky tie .. or dare I say it a silk bow tie for maximum contrast. Wear under a blazer or with tailored trousers and keep it pressed. Topman have a fantastic denim shirt instore, the type of shirt that you could find during a lucky day’s haul at a vintage boutique .. or pay £30 quid for now and not have to rummage through all that musty stuff.

Bored of bow ties? Try some texture

By Colin Chapman on December 9th, 2008

Whilst the appetite for formal dressing in menswear shows no sign of slacking, inevitably certain details start to look a bit tired. Thus it is with the bow tie. Whilst some can carry this off with aplomb (as the cover star of last month’s debut Buck magazine showed) for others it was never going to be easy. There’s something novelty about the bow tie that risks looking too try-hard.

Peter Jensen Gingham Hi.jpg

For a third season Danish designer Peter Jensen and British label Fred Perry are working together on an old staple; the Harrington jacket. Coming in red, black and a very current gingham Jensen is up to standard in his attention to detail with the classic jacket receiving a super-sizing to the pockets and laurel.

The jackets will be available from next year as part of Fred Perry’s SS09 range with a rough launch date of February 09 being pencilled in.
