What is Valet?

Valet is an independent, long-form, print-only publication dedicated to classic menswear and timeless style.

We champion film photography and 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 and think entirely and unapologetically for themselves.

Valet’s conception

The man who values eternal style over ephemeral fashion has little 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 need 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.
