Issue No. 8


Man of the World's June Issue is a love letter to down time and the outdoor pursuits that make summer our favorite season. It has three separate covers: Garrett Hedlund, breakout star of Lullaby; an exclusive Bruce Weber fashion cover; and a limited-edition hand-drawn collector’s cover by artist Tom Sachs.

Inside No. 8, we dive deep into the archives of M.Nii, the tiny Hawaiian tailor shop that invented modern surf wear, raise a glass with English novelist Martin Amis, break bread with Charlie Rose, the last serious man in TV news, and visit George Nakashima's mid century masterpiece in the Pennsylvania sticks. We also hang with Boardwalk Empire actor Brian Geraghty, spotlight the six essential nautical watches of summer, and showcase Simon Davidson's stunning photographs of the Australian muscle car scene. Elsewhere, we hit the gym with Boo George, take a tour of the modern Man Cave with Bruce Weber, and get a closer look at the latest pieces from Sachs's epic "Space Program" series.

This issue also marks the redesign of the Man of the World Journal, the companion newspaper that comes with every issue. It's packed with even more stories and new and vintage items from our shop you won't find anywhere else. From the untold history of "Ari's Bar"—Aristotle Onassis's private saloon aboard the Christina O.—to Filson's latest collaboration, the new Journal goes deep.
