MAN ABOUT TOWN

Article excerpted from stylesalvage.blogspot.com

After months of waiting, we have well and truly hit magazine season – so much so that it is hard to keep up and make the time to sit down and actually read them. Why can’t they space publication out a little more? I
 
‘m overdosing on glossy pages right now after months of going cold turkey. Three publications have arrived all together, Fantastic Man (hallelujah), Another Man and Man About Town (they have a new website as well). My commute into the office has suddenly been made all the more brighter, so who cares if my face is mere millimetres across from the armpit of a fellow traveller – I will make room to read!
 
First out of the bag is Man About Town…

Whatever your thoughts on the Jamie Hince by Hedi Slimane cover, it is what’s inside that makes the magazine truly special. One of my favourite features is the ‘what we like’ section which looks at everything from Acne Studios office to recommendations on how to achieve the perfect shave to finding the perfect wine. Also in this issue, in the aptly named ‘Men About Town’ piece, they talked to the leading men of Paris (including Andre and Olivier Zahm), Berlin (Christopher Roth, Joerg Koch) and New York (Adam Kimmel, Sean MacPherson).

The wonderfully shot editorials showcase the very best of menswear and one of my favourites is the tribute to Yves, which is something special, and the whole magazine is strong on the styles I love.

Ever since it burst on to the scene, Man About Town has guaranteed a highly enjoyable, informative, and, dare I say, beautiful read. The latest issue is no exception as it contains a carefully acquired collection of interesting people’s ideas and experiences, providing articles which I love to read, accompanied by my kind of fashion. Thank goodness for magazines like this one and also Fantastic Man – without them the world in my opinion would be a little duller…or at the very least, my morning commute would certainly be.
