Tyler Brule [imagine several accent marks on last name], the editor of Monocle magazine, that bedrock of ""lifestyle sensuality and gaywad uptightness," is well known for being "cool," in the sense of "not cool." I mean really he is very accomplished and all but in some ways the worst. The point is: he does not tweet.
Tyler Brule is the publisher of high-fashion design magazine Wallpaper and of Monocle, that beacon of "lifestyle sensuality and gaywad uptightness" that could be viewed as either the world's most pretentious or (incorrectly) most inspiring magazine. It sure is something. Though not a lifestyle magazine.
Monocle, the worldly Tyler Brule-helmed lifestyle magazine for young, stylish, business-oriented jetsetters who receive free subscriptions, is sending out the following note to editors: "Monocle magazine offers a briefing on global affairs, business, culture and design. It is not a lifestyle magazine." Hmm. Monocle has formerly been described on Gawker as a "travel-culture magazine" and a repository of "lifestyle sensuality and gaywad uptightness." Close enough.

Magazines. They just don't satisfy, somehow, all niched up and specific and all about one thing to make advertisers happy. Why can't magazines address the multiple people that we are? Why can't they reach, and stretch, and maybe purr a little? So finally we've designed our dream magazine. We seek investors who believe in the power of print!
Perhaps merely subscribing to Tyler Brûlé's newish travel-culture magazine Monocle was not enough? Perhaps you are interested in, figuratively, riding Tyler Brûlé. Now you can, with this Monocle-branded Skeppshult bicycle, which can be yours for a mere £600 (almost exactly $1200). Impress your literary friends on your town's new bicycle!
