It has been almost a year since I bought my first copy of Monocle and hey, I don’t regret paying Php 1250.00 for a copy monthly – that’s roughly USD 28.00.
Just last weekend, I found out from my friend Anton that Monocle just collaborated with J. Crew, an American clothing and accessories retailer based in New York for this year’s spring collection.
They might seem like an unlikely pair to team up based on price point differences and an extra whiff of snobbery but I don’t really mind.
24 copies later, it is my first time to really see photos of the guys behind the London-based magazine and yes, I’m pretty impressed! (Who wouldn't?)
