Who Is The Rake?
Perhaps it is fitting that I open our first post with a quote from our print manifesto.
The modern man longs for a cultured world of exquisite - yet unabashedly masculine- refinement. He longs for the world of The Rake.
Perhaps you believe it sounds pretentious? I say, “Nay.”
The Rake is simply our response to the average man and the wide array of men’s rags out in the marketplace. We humbly entreat you, thrust aside the average and embrace heritage along with quality that inevitably follows hallowed tradition.
We are purveyors of timeless classic elegance, some of our sartorial recommendations may cost in the thousands but amortised across the years, a mere hundred per year. What most men’s magazines out there espouse trendiness, whilst less expensive (at times), theirs’ is an altar to mammon and worship of the most mercurial of gods- the fashion cycle.
That said, we shall not ignore the aspiring. We will make introductions to the finer details and be a guide of sorts as you progress from Rake-ling to Rake. "Who is The Rake?" you ask.
- He is classically elegant.
- He is well groomed.
- An erudite gentleman.
- Enjoys the finer things in life.
Be not disenfranchised any longer, welcome to the world of The Rake.
