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.

Doylesays: Buck’s editor/publisher starts a blog

By Colin Chapman on January 23rd, 2009

Launched on the back of the latest updates over at Buckstyle.com, (the online face of top newish men’s mag, Buck) is a new blog by Buck’s publisher/editor Steve Doyle. Something of an enigma, little is known about Mr Doyle other than he’s not only editor of Buck but also its publisher having been inspired to create the magazine of his dreams during his time spent living in Japan.

The latter experience is already bearing fruit as Doyle explains the origins of a key accessory from Christopher Bailey’s latest Burberry Prorsum men’s collection: the Japanese knitted cummerbund. The blog’s other stated purpose is to give us the lowdown on his experience of setting up Buck, or in his words ‘the complete randomness of publishing a magazine’. Given the warm reception (and impressive distribution) of Buck to date, Mr Doyle’s blog promises to be interesting.
