PORT #2

Posted: Juli 17th, 2011 | Author: dk | Filed under: Man | 20 Comments »

ISSUE #2 leads with a profile of New Yorker editor David Remnick, a story that should get it plenty of press attention and emphasises its literary roots. The piece is by author Nicholson Baker, portrait by Brigitte Lacombe. // Also in the issue: Jon Snow, Martin Amis, a debut literary outing for Hanif Kureishi’s son Carlo, a feature on Mies van der Rohe by the director of the Architectural Association Brett Steele and a chat with the woman who makes the Queen’s brassieres.

About
Harking back to the grand extended magazine interviews of the mid 60’s, the lead PORT profile offers an authentic, in-depth look at the life of a contemporary icon and the forces they feel are important – issue one features a key essay by Daniel Day-Lewis. By placing celebrities, fashion and style into a cultural context, PORT is a refreshing and influential title for the industries it reflects, while also appealing to a mainstream audience.

Edited and Art directed in London by Dan Crowe, Kuchar Swara and Matt Willey, each quarterly issue of PORT will be a collector’s item in its own right. Significant, practical editorials on the major fashion collections, styled by fashion director David St. John-James will offer a comprehensive analysis for men interested in style – but without all the hyperbole and spin. PORT is distinguished for its sense of editorial confidence and its iconic art direction. As well as investigative reports from the likes of Martin Amis and ex-Time editor Don Morrison, each issue will feature a standalone section dedicated to a powerful, original short story from a leading author.  PORT will mix the traditional and contemporary at their very best, creating a truly modern magazine. -PORT Magazine

About
A modern magazine tracing the roots of style. ’Revival is not so much about looking backwards as attempting to create a new and different future from that offered by the market, consumerism and mainstream aesthetics. It seems to me [ and I must be forgiven if I am wrong ] that few of us in retro and revival culture would wish to go back to the moral and technological straight-jacket of the mid-twentieth century. If my interpretation is shared by any of our readers they will understand when I say there has been so much that is good discarded from the Post-war period and we simply desire to correct those mistakes. In other words there never was a need for all cars to become characterless air-conditioned boxes, hermetically sealed so that a perfectly good wrench [ that helped take man to the moon ] will no longer even remove the engine cover. Or for clothing to be made so that it falls to pieces after a few weeks or for that matter for grown men to style themselves as a cross between an urban surfer and a boy-band front man just to please their girlfriends [ there I go airing my pet hates again! ].

Quality is subjective and hearing a non re-mastered Gene Vincent of [ for our French readers ] Jacques Brel coming directly from vinyl, even through a Dansette, hits all the right notes and feels somehow, more real or [ dare I say ] authentic than coming through an i-Pod, as clever as they are. I can’t say why, it just feels more like being there – whatever that means. — Sydney Schaffer, Editor-in-Chief

About
Manzine: a publication about the male phenomenon, And by the way, let’s drop any further reference to masculinity, media studies, feminism and what have you right there.

It’s a fanzine, not a sociology lecture. Furthermore, Manzine isn’t driven by focus groups, demography and people who say things like „going forward“. It doesn’t have ologies or isms, provides no information to assist in the acquisition of upgrades or the location of G-spots, and doesen’t patronise you with lists of things you need to do before you die.

As for the rest of it, it is about what its contributors do, think and are into. They’re all men so it should be a reflection of this whole new type of man called a „Man“. That’s it. Enjoy it. – The Manzine Staff
