the raw issue

LET’S GET THE OBVIOUS OUT OF THE WAY: WHY THE RAW ISSUE? Because we’ve taken it upon ourselves to curate socially relevant ideas that affect men’s lives. And, since we’ve never been shy as a magazine, we feel the need to stick our necks out every once in a while. The Raw Issue was born of the idea that the world needs another dash of bold, fresh thinking, and the faith—or misconception, depending on how you’re skewed—that we are, perhaps, the best equipped medium to handle that. Also, our previous issue’s cover with the sensational Deepika Padukone, who topped the 2017 Hot 100, was so well-received that we wanted to surprise you again. This issue is dedicated in content and spirit to the idea that simplicity isn’t related to tuning out all…

GILLES BENSIMON One of the world’s best-known celebrity photographers, Gilles has worked with many leading actors, singers and models. His style captures the subject and the environment with a sensual precision. Based in New York, he is a close collaborator of our U.S. cousins. ASHISH CHAWLA He picked up the electric guitar at 17 to form a rock band called Zephyr, but after completing a BFA and dabbling with easels, sculptures and installations, he found his calling in an image eternally frozen in a moment. Sixteen years later, he is yet to encounter something that’s more expressive, communicative or enchanting than a well-taken photograph. TARAS TARAPORVALA He’s primarily known for his fashion portraiture, but Taras is also a keen travel photographer. His work can be best described as clean and personal. He recently completed a…

late summer libations

AUGUST IS A STRANGE DRINKING MONTH. Summer is winding down, the rains are intermittent and the nippy looms. You’re over rosé and can’t do another Tom Collins, but it’s not quite brandy season and whisky doesn’t seem right in the stifling heat. In other words, it’s the month to experiment. Maxim asked some of the best bartenders for their go-to August cocktails, and they didn’t disappoint. So drink up—summer’s not over yet. Perfect Daiquiri The Perfect Daiquiri is the perfect balance of sour, sweet, and spirit. The perfect combo of texture, brightness, and depth. It never outstays its welcome and is a great cocktail to enjoy all summer long and as you head slowly into the winter. 30 ml lime juice 15 ml rich cane syrup 75 ml rum mix (30 ml white rum, 15…
