Men's magazines: The Rake and Men's Ex

Currently, my favorite men's magazines are Men's Ex (published in Japanese and available at Kinokuniya and Mitsuwa) and The Rake (published in English). Below are are a couple of sample shots from the September 2008 issue of Men's Ex. They illustrate nicely the difference between soft and structured shoulders and variations between.

The Rake is a newly launched magazine whose inaugural issue was the December 2008 / January 2009. The Rake website recently went live and features a selection of articles from the print versions.

My apologies, I don't have a good recommendation for you as I have not rented a tuxedo recently (or distantly for that matter).

But for rented kit I'm sure a local formalwear shop wherever you live should fill in decently (all things considered). Before you get creative with your rental tux, please check my post on creative black tie:
