5 Style & Lifestyle Magazines to Discover Right Now

Clinically proven to reduce screen time

For the past five years or so, there’ve been lots of rumblings about the demise of print. To restate the obvious: internet. As we continue to consume content online, yes, perhaps these certain legacy publications have become less viable or relevant. If it’s the latter, however, that’s their own fault. Maybe there’s a way print can offer a different experience? One that’s elevated, immersive, and focused on quality and beauty?

There are some print publications–and rather new print publications, in some cases–that are getting it right. (At least in the realm of men’s style and lifestyle.) We’ve rounded up five of our favorites that are totally worth a read right now.

1. The Rake

If there was a magazine that spoke to timeless men’s style, The Rake is certainly the one to do so. One can’t help but feel underdressed while flipping through its pages. As much as a guide to live your life as it is a source of pleasure, I’ve learned so much about different tailoring houses and clothing from tailors far and wide. The Rake is a constant source of inspiration to me as well as something to dream about and aspire to.

2. Hodinkee

It’s been quite amazing to witness the transformation of my friend Ben Clymer’s little dorm room watch blog over the past several years–with the last two or three being quite exceptional. Hodinkee not only delivers amazing and relevant content for the casual watch enthusiast all the way up to the hardcore collector, but they’ve created some content franchises we don’t know how we ever lived without (Talking Watches, Reference Points, A Week on the Wrist, et al.) and expanded into other areas as well, including the Hodinkee Shop, podcast, and the subject of this post, Hodinkee magazine.

When we’re talking about “what looks right” in the realm of print magazines these days, Hodinkee magazine is a great example. Beautiful artwork. Exceptional stories. And, of course, watches. Where the magazine really shines, however, is that it’s not just about watches. It’s about the people and the lifestyle around those watches. It’s compelling. It’s immersive. And it actually feels like quality.

3. WM Brown

WM Brown is a magazine that has mastered the art of profound personal storytelling and striking photography. A friend of us here at HSS, Matt Hranek writes about traveling, food & drink. Reading his stories and those of his contributors, it transports me back into my early teens. The eclectic mix of narratives on the refined gentleman or rustic outdoorsman appeals to both the novice I once was and now older man I’ve become. What’s more telling is the articles never feel contrived or pretentious. With each story you read, you really get a sense the writer is speaking from their heart.

4. Departures

One of my favorite perks of my American Express Platinum card (I’ve got one for the business and personal) is not the airport lounge access or $15 monthly Uber credit, it’s the subscription to Departures magazine. It’s one of our favorite travel and lifestyle magazines around the house and we look forward to every issue. Now, more than ever, I think we’d all like to get away and escape. And Departures allows us to dream about all the interesting and beautiful places we can visit once we can get out of the house!

5. Revolution

For the watch obsessed, Revolution is a magazine that can make you realize that there are far more watch brands out there then just Rolex. Throughout this magazine you’ll likely fall in love with a timepiece that’s about $100,000 dollars more than you can afford. It’s not just a pretty picture though. Revolution does a fantastic job at writing engaging and interesting pieces that I just can’t get enough of. Whether you have a modern collection of watches or are starting a vintage one, this is the magazine to reach for if you want to nerd out on watch dials and faux lume.
