Valet, Issue 1
Valet Issue 1 started in a bar in St Petersburg about a year ago. Its founders worked for another prominent print magazine that took a subject and used it to explore the Big Themes of life. We wanted to do the same with menswear and classic style.
In this issue:
In Issue 1, you will find a veritable banquet of original content, from history, philosophy, and literary criticism, to interviews, guides to cloth, and original fiction.
In the first of two chapters, we have articles ranging from the history of the umbrella in life and literature, a guide to corduroy by Bernhard Roetzel, an ode to menswear for foul weather by Andrew Yamato of New & Lingwood, a breakdown of three suiting traditions, a conversation between a man and his valet about what best to wear in a downpour, an interview with Sean Crowley of Crowley Vintage in New York, several obscure photograph essays exploring such things as cloth in motion, the abstract notion of ‘Ruin’ coupled with extracts from the famous essayist Owen Barfield on the poetic soul of the word, stills from the film noir Une si jolie petite plage (1949), and more.
