This issue: Best of the Brits is the apparent theme for issue No. 4. James Sherwood is the archivist at Henry Poole & Co, who provides interesting insight and reflections on the history of “Pooles” and changes in sartorial style seen throughout history on the ‘Row’. In these pages you will also find articles about bespoke shoemaker John Lobb London, shirt and tie maker Turnbull & Asser and the best British motorcycles. Fashion magazines are a dime a dozen, full of ads, overpriced clothing and glib tips on 'what's hot right now.' The Rake, on the other hand, stands alone as the only publication dedicated to the art of classic style. Named for Fiat and Ferrari kingpin Gianni Agnelli (aka 'The Rake of the Riviera'), the magazine focuses strictly on the finer things: bespoke tailoring, fine shoes, watches and accessories. But The Rake is more than a repository of expensive things, its pages bulge with feature articles on the men and women, past and present, who have shaped the history of style and 'the good life'.
