Focusing on a broad range of subjects that interest the post-modern, post-lad, the seeds of Proper Magazine were sown as a home-grown fanzine more than five years ago. Now though, it's all grown up, just like the people who read it.
This second sojourn into magazine territory covers some of Autumn/Winter's most impressive apparel, interspersed with subjects as diverse as French cartoons, Norwegian food, London's hidden gems and rare albums you didn't realise you needed in your life.
But it's the clothing coverage that is Proper's strength. Exclusive interviews with the men behind brands like the Swedes Our Legacy, Svensson and Velour stand out, as does a fishing trip with Barbour Beacon designer Tokhito Yoshida and his Mrs.
For the old school, there's the tale of Yorkshireman Robert Wade-Smith and how his trainer emporium found itself on the axis of the casual scene in the early 1980s.
There's intrigue too, as ultra-limited moccasin men Native Craftworks lead a guided tour around their factory and give the lowdown on how they manage to make such amazing shoes. Proper have also enlisted the help of a chap called Russ Gater, one of the creative spirits behind British brand Heritage Research. he talks about his obsession with Vietnam era militaria, from rare camouflage to the personal effects of those who fought. See if you can make the link from that to the clothes he designs, because it's definitely there.
Other brands covered are Kenneth MacKenzie's 6876 and Vera Footwear. Perry Boys author Ian Hough is also onboard once again.
