The Rake has launched a particularly distinctive online shop, featuring only special editions of sartorial items crafted in limited numbers by the best artisans in each domain of men’s classical elegance.
Recently, The Rake and our friends at Marol have teamed up to conceive and design a few outstanding models to appeal to gentlemen who prefer classic garments “with a twist”.
Denim Tuxedo shirt : breaking the rules
This model is a technical tour de force as well as a bold stylistic statement. Made with exquisite denim twill by Carlo Riva, this atypical “fusion shirt” features all the fine details of a dinner shirt (pleated front, French cuffs, Mother of Pearls buttons) with the incomparable comfort and sturdiness of a denim garment.
Probably one of the most versatile and creative, yet elegant shirts on the market today.
Our own Parisian Gentleman photographer, Lyle Roblin, has propelled this particular style of shirt in the past, as an option to dress up or dress down most any ensemble. The more you wash and wear this type of shirt, the more beautiful it becomes.
Denim safari shirt : between a shirt and a jacket
This distinctive model, made with soft denim twill by Carlo Riva, is also about versatility: thick enough to be worn casually above a classic shirt as a light jacket, but also light enough to be worn alone as a refined shirt (with the option of hiding the second line of pockets when tucking-in the shirt). Brilliant!
