What is Valet?
Valet is an independent, print-only publication dedicated to classic menswear and timeless style. We champion long-form essays that take unexpected and esoteric approaches to menswear, tailoring, and style—and, in the spirit of whimsy, publish articles tangentially or not at all related to clothing, just because we like them—in order to inspire men to dress entirely and unapologetically as themselves.
The conception of Valet
The man who values eternal style over ephemeral fashion has until recently had no refuge in today’s landscape, but the world is renewing; the plot is thickening; and the sartorial game is afoot.
A new cohort of men has appeared. We are of different ages and political sensibilities, live in far-flung countries, and lead very different lives. United by our passion for quality clothing, we needed a quality publication that reflects our lives.
So we created Valet.
What you’re in for
Every issue of Valet is intended to be a beautiful object to be kept and collected, as uncompromising about its appearance as it is about the elements of style that it describes and the language it employs.
We celebrate timeless style through our passion for written and visual expression, and our editorial objective is to publish content that shuns the ephemeral and focuses on the eternal.
Articles are detailed historical, sociological, theological, literary, and poetic works. We have no truck with news or gossip. Valet does not age or expire.
It is in shape and matter what it is in purpose: truly timeless, as is any real sophistication or style.
‘The thing I respect about you is that you do things the treacherous way—refusing to purchase bogus followers to “prove” that you’re popular, and putting in the time to turn out quality content, while earning one devotee at a time.’
‘You guys truly show a passion and expertise regarding your topics and I really love the historical references. It’s as if Evelyn Waugh and Graham Greene were doing the writing.’
‘Thank you for Valet! It’s beautiful. The editor’s letter is perfection.’
‘I was curious to read your publication, but now I am absolutely desperate to. I love this sort of detail.’
‘We are reading this first issue of Valet now. The whole team is impressed by your work and that of your team!’
