The Rake – Issue 85
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.

We can’t figure out if Issue 85 of The Rake is a reflection on 2022 or a springboard into 2023. Perhaps both? After all the aim for every issue of The Rake is to be perennial, and remain relevant no matter the content. This is no better summed up by King Charles as Rake of the Year. A man whose new role is as ancient as this island nation from which we make the magazine, but one that he must navigate through the coming years. The old navigating the new. Whether you are after old or new, articles from Gary Cooper and photo essays from Dylan Don will surely make any discerning reader satisfied and entertained.
