The Magazine: Issue Three

Discounted domestic shipping + 15% off in the GP store for subscribers.

Three issues in, our bid remains the same: to deliver a rich, cinematic treatise chock full of people, product and places — stories we hope will inspire you to take journeys of your own.

In this issue, we take you on a 190-mile dog sled adventure across the desolate Arctic Circle, share a thoughtful commentary from an American tourist venturing into the confounding and vibrant culture of Cuba, and survive a private session on the world’s most notorious track, the Nürburgring, behind the wheel of what might just be Porsche’s greatest car. Elsewhere, we dispatched teams to Los Angeles and New York’s Hudson Valley for a fresh perspective from the designers, makers and creators advancing their crafts.


In L.A., we sat down for a chat with the much sought-after graphic designer Geoff McFetridge and interviewed the city’s newest vanguards of men’s style. Back east, deep within the Catskills, we followed three guides for a rare glimpse of what fly-fishermen do in their off-hours (naturally, they fish); prepared our bounty with Zakary Pelaccio, the James Beard Award-winning chef of Fish & Game in his sprawling backyard escape (he also shared his rustic recipe with us); and met with the creatives helping redefine the region’s relationship to the Big Apple, and to the world.

A rich, cinematic treatise chock full of people, product and places — stories we hope will inspire you to take journeys of your own.

We also have three fascinating special reports for you. Associate Editor Chris Wright takes us down south to Georgia’s Ossabaw Island for a look inside the quiet battle raging over America’s miracle pig (yes, that’s right, a miracle pig); Deputy Managing Editor Matthew Ankeny follows a cadre of elite female cyclists who embody the ideal of “for the love of sport”; and lastly, in the wake of the FTC’s legislative hammer-drop on those egregiously using the term “Made in America,” we survey the new crop of American-made timepieces. The results may surprise you.

If it’s gear you’re after, we have you kitted out for the cold months ahead with winter boots, German beer, the ultimate café racer kit, a drive in the badass Mercedes-Benz 4×4, five perfect examples of why your next watch should be thin and rose gold, and an alluring look at this season’s best new shirts captured by photographer Neave Bozorgi.

We somehow found a way to cram all this (and much more) into just 320 pages. Our hope is you’ll find the time to tuck into this issue over a few sessions. It’s been a year since we began our journey into print and it’s still every bit as thrilling (and exhausting!). If you have thoughts, opinions or ideas, don’t hesitate to write to me — I’m always down for coffee and tall tales. – Eric Yang, Editor-in-Chief
