MONOCLE 09/07

Thanks to Ifzan and Ant, I finally got myself a copy of Monocle Magazine while browsing the magazine aisle at my neighborhood bookstore. It was a bit pricy though but totally worth it for Php 1,275.00(around $ 27.00).

I don't like the fact that they're charging full price for an old issue! So unfair. A new issue costs half over here. Anyway. I'm glad you enjoyed the magazine!

Why don't you try the subscription? It comes with a limited edition Monocle tote!

Actually went back and complained about pricing etc haha. Back issues retailed for P250, current issue P1275..I got a refund haha

re subscription - I find it a bit expensive, P15,000 for a year...but again, I can just charge it haha

So where did you end up getting this copy of Monocle? Funny, I got a monocle back-issue at Dover Street Market at a price higher than the current. Maybe because it was a shopping issue?

BTW Carlo of Paul Smith told me he found my blog through yours. It was funny, what a small world.
