At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The surge in independent publishing continues this week with the launch of At Large Magazine, a new triennial menswear magazine that offers a “first-class seat on an irreverent ride through form and content, fact and fiction, investigation and conversation, aesthetics and adventure.” And a splashy début it is, with four covers—including rising stars Jack O’Connell from Unbroken and Luke Grimes from American Sniper, both shot by Randall Mesdon—and a party to celebrate at Art Basel Miami Beach this Friday with Aaron Young, the Webster, and A$AP Rocky.

Bruce Weber contributes an original portfolio to this first issue, to go along with photo-collages by Jack Pierson and limited-edition bandanas by Young. A third cover features pro surfer Ben Skinner, photographed here by Ben Weller with styling by Julie Ragolia, with an accompanying candid seaside story within. The fourth cover, with artist/model David Alexander Flinn is shot by Mark Abrahams, styled by Deborah Watson. The long-haired Travis Smith takes center stage in another fashion feature, photographed by Matthew Brookes and dressed by Bill Mullen in the season’s sharpest, cleanest sportswear pieces. Take a look at these stories in an exclusive preview of the promising new start below and get the special At Large/J.Crew collaboration t-shirt right here.

Classic Luxury

June 6th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Since its launch in 2012, upscale menswear magazine Man of the World has built a reputation for classic imagery and an eye for restrained luxury. The latest issue, with rising star Garrett Hedlund on the cover (by John Balsom, styled by their fashion director Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) keeps it all in line with a gorgeous portfolio of portraits by Randall Mesdon, seen here first on models.com. The rich black-and-white photography captures a selection of some of the modeling world’s brightest faces, with up-and-comers like Clark Bockelman and John Todd alongside established names like RJ Rogenski, all dressed by Deborah Watson (Walter Schupfer Management) in the season’s coolest sportswear. The iconic images capture a pensive mood, offering up a quiet study of a handful of engaging faces with nothing to hide.

The One

October 1st, 2010 |Posted by Betty

The passage of time is not so kind for many but Sean O’Pry is seemingly impervious to this fate. His editorials this month for 7TH Man Magazine (with a fantastic cover and editorial by Randall Mesdon, styled by Julie Ragolia) and shoots for Details/British GQ/Vogue Nippon prove that there’s never a moment when that extraordinary face is not in demand.

(Issue 2 of 7th Man available to order info@7thmanmagazine.com)
