The Independents……… PORT Magazine

This is our second magazine for today because I didn’t think it should be left out.


It’s a magazine with so much potential, we feel like we’re waiting for it. They have great cover subjects (i.e. Daniel Day Lewis and Philip Seymour Hoffman,) very nice editorials, and it’s nicely written. But like a sugary treat, it leaves you wanting more.


But also like a sugary treat, I’ll keep coming back because it’s enjoyable.  If you do have a chance to pick it up, make sure you read this great article called “Do it Like a Dude,” by our friend Angelo Flaccavento.  He talks about Gianni Agnelli’s style individuality through anarchy, with a couple of references about his “life of hi-class mischief and five-star luxe.”

The Independents….. Man About Town

It only comes out twice a year, but it’s one of my favorite magazines to pick up from the newsstand.


Full disclosure: Justin wasn’t as impressed as I usually am, but I had to tell him that this issue wasn’t as strong as I’ve seen in the past.  The editorials are strong, and their choice of subject matter is always interesting. I like that they take chances (i.e. the current dog issue). To me, it’s not as fully developed a voice as Fantastic Man, but it’s the independent magazine that I’m most curious to see evolve.


You’ll notice that Man About Town is way less text heavy than the other magazines in this series.  Not saying that’s good or bad, but it’s worth noting how imagery is really powering content, and we all know how much I love good photography.

On the Street….Old Man Gianluca, Milan

To understand how cool and modern this shot is, you first have to understand how old-fashioned Gianlucas coat is!


That specific coat model is very popular in Italy, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that coat (a loden-ish, Tyrolean-ish classic) ever worn by anyone under 80 years old, let alone a super-cool, dreadlocked editor of L’Uomo Vogue.


That’s one of the reasons that Gianluca’s style (you can click his new tag for all his posts) is so cool; he’s always on the prowl for  ”the new,” but he never forgets the beauty of well established classics.

The Independents…… Inventory Magazine

If you really enjoy getting into the nitty gritty of all things Urban Woodsmen, then you’ll probably love this magazine.


Inventory has extremely in-depth coverage of the products that they believe in. Some might say to the point of minutiae. To be honest, I’m a little jealous that the Urban Woodsmen have a magazine so dedicated to their cult of lifestyle. I wish there was a magazine as beautifully executed to satisfy the Anglo-Milanese in me.


Cheat sheet: One of my favorite sections of the magazine is “Items of Interest” in the back.  It’s like the Cliff Notes of cool.

On the Street…..The Cut, Amsterdam

Someday I will have to open a The Sartorialist just for hairstyles.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a great unique hairstyle/cut is one of the best things a cash-strapped young lady or gentlemen can invest in.


You get to wear it everyday, you can wear it in several different ways, and you can accessorize in a million different ways.
