WHAT IS A RAKE?
By Oxford English definition, “a fashionable or wealthy man of immoral or promiscuous habits.” A mid-17th century abbreviation of the archaic 'rakehell.'
Promiscuous? Immoral? So three hundred years ago.
Meet the contemporary Rake. Wealthy? Possibly. A man? No, not necessarily. Fashionable? Most definitely. But - on the Rake's Own Terms.
The Rake has a Take: on Style, Love, Friendship, Confidence, Success. Unembarrassed, unabashed. Negotiable, but only just ... They are never afraid to tell you what they think, or show you how it's done.
- THE RAKE'S TAKES -
Rakes put-into-practice epitome of his or her own well-won experience: individualistic in outlook, and encyclopaedic in taste.
Culled, observed and collected from some of Modern Times' most indubitable, estimable, and acknowledged Rakes are a template for a new 'Rake's Progress': the Rake's Takes.
