The Rake – Issue 77
The Modern Voice of Classic Elegance
Founded in 2008, The Rake is the world’s preeminent publication dedicated to the education and arbitration of men's style. Recapturing the codes of classic men’s elegance, The Rake is inspired by icons such as Cary Grant, Gianni Agnelli, Sean Connery and their contemporary counterparts. It provides incisive, in-depth commentary on menswear and the many other elements of gentlemanly living, from manners and ethics to art and design, travel, the intellectual and the philosophical, entertainment, food and drink.
In this issue:
The August issue of The Rake kicks off with Matt Damon, pizza, beer and a Riva Rivamare in Cannes. As much as we would be happy to leave it there, I am pleased to say, there’s more. From Lucifer’s leading man Tom Ellis, to Prince Philip, bespoke gun making from Purdey, personal style from Jay Fielden and the 'scion of Sartorialism', Rocco Ritchie. We present our collections in collaboration with Cifonelli and Rubinacci, and present what must be the most comprehensive feature on the Lange 1 ever written. This issue speaks to both legacies and new beginnings, and as the modern voice of classic elegance, that feels about right.
