A good read: The Rake Lapo Elkann edition


Posted on January 24th, by Jonathan Ho in Arbiter, Rake-commends. 2 comments

The Rake issue 25 featuring Lapo Elkann is out on the stands now. It’s one of our best issues to date (admittedly, all our issues are fantastic) but because we’re huge perfectionists, we get better with each book. A couple of highlights: we get in touch with New York’s checkered history (sartorially speaking), we tackle one of the most contentious sartorial garments to date- the fur coat (written by yours truly), James Medd delves into the incredible excess of the Brunei royal family and obviously Lapo, our cover star. Get yours online now. [Click here to subscribe]

Editor’s Picks from The Rake Issue 25

While New York (notably Brooklyn) is well-known for its hipsters, therein lies a colony of dandies who dress to impress even more than their fellow denizens of the Big Apple — and impress they surely do. These compelling shots were taken by photographer and filmmaker Rose Callahan, whose personal project ‘Dandy Portraits’ (www.dandyportraits.blogspot.com) is, in our opinion, a joy to peruse. But don’t take our word for it — check them out for yourself. Pun intended.

More awesome reads are just a click away.

  1. I have been trying to contact Rake subscription team through email and telephone but have received no response for 48 hours. My question is simple: whether December 2012 is the latest issue and, if not, then I have not been delivered with the latest issue. I expect someone in the team should be able to answer the question fairly quickly but it is disaapointing that a customer has to write multiple emails to have one simple question answered. I would appreciate if someone could revert in a timely fashion. If indeed there is subsequent issue after December 2012, I would appreciate if someone could contact me and arrange the latest issue to be delivered to me.

    Kind regards
