All the Proper Nouns in the Style Section's Tyler Brûlé Profile

New, 6 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

There's no Critical Shopper in today's New York Times style section, but there is a three-page long profile of Monocle magazine editor and lifestyle impresario Tyler Brûlé. Hipster stores all over Manhattan carry Monocle as a sort of badge of good taste, and the brand even has its own tiny but supremely classy West Village boutique.

Since Brûle really seems to live the globe-trotting, ambassador-schmoozing life his magazine promotes, today's profile can best be absorbed as a collection of proper nouns. Leaving out the obvious ones (like, um, "Monocle"), we came up with 75 of them, organized below for your edification.
