Launching in Manchester, in conjunction with a photography exhibition from The People's City by The British Culture Archive, the newest Issue of proper gives us content to die for*.
"We tend not to purposely theme any of our issues but this particular one appears to have a strong British pop culture vibe going on. Purely by accident.
So brace yourselves for an interview with the brains behind the British Culture Archive, an in-depth chat with Manc author Lee Rourke, some incredible photos of musicians from top snapper Richard Kelly, a chat with Seb from the Warehouse Project, as well as a sneak peek at the amazing new Flowered Up book.
Not forgetting a very handy A to Z of The Orielles, that sheds a great deal of light on how they’ve achieved those funky cross pennine sounds on their phenomenal new album Disco Volador.
Ticking the outerwear box we’ve also been out shooting the latest British Millerain collection from The North Face as well as taking the new Sprayway Torridon out on a bracing ramble around Black Moss reservoir (we got lost btw).
You’ll also find some truly amazing jackets from Tretorn and Mammut on show as well as a plethora of vintage hiking boots from adidas and a look around the brand new Yards store in Manchester. Oh and there'ssome awe-inspiring artwork from our friends in Venice who are using their wealth of talent to help turn back the tide on a local studio, which we urge you to get involved with."
*My grandma who always made me drag her round Kwik Save in a wheelchair so she could buy their cheap gin used to say that things were 'to die for'. Felt it was an appropriate description for this issue.
