Based on the fundamental elements of luxury (high quality & craftsmanship, rarity, and the creation of fantasy) Sky Blue - Gentleman's Review, takes its readers by the hand and walks them into an elevated, kinetic universe of contemporary sartorialist. Published internationally once per year, and Paris based, it introduces the modern man to an urbane daydream by way of classic tailoring and high-end fashion in a seductive spirit. Sky Blue makes a mark as having a unique visual presence in the current sphere of printed press. Sky Blue also celebrates the written word by publishing the oeuvres of numerous different authors contributing essays and fictional works relevant to the publication. Alluding to reality, whilst retaining a certain amount of reverie, timeless style and attitude designed to build an intrigue and evoke an impact on the reader, Sky Blue is a distinctively different brand of menswear at the newstand today.
Sky Blue - Gentleman’s Review prides itself on retaining a coveted presence in the marketplace. It is sold as a hard-bound fabric covered book inside of a box. Printed on quality, demi-mat paper, with a large-scale format (25 cm x 30 cm), it exists in the ever-popular ‘Coffee Table Book’ literary sphere. At roughly 250 pages per issue, with a limited number of copies printed per release, it continues to be distributed internationally by KD Presse Paris, a worldwide manager of the printed word, in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Milan, Paris, and London.
In 2019, Sky Blue took flight, thanks to the vision of James V. Thomas. He sought to defy the norm of mainstream magazines, which primarily focused on sportswear or other commercially-driven topics. Instead, James was determined to bring to life a publication that not only dazzled with its aesthetics, but also enticed readers with its engaging content. Hailing from the outskirts of Philadelphia, James ventured to Paris at a youthful age of 18 to study fashion, and it was there that he found his calling. Today, he journeys across the globe in pursuit of alluring nostalgia, captivating beauty, unrivaled excellence, and of course, a fine cocktail. Sky Blue proudly features a host of James' like-minded friends and acquaintances, each with their own unique view on life. Together, they curate a unique and thought-provoking publication that captivates readers and inspires them to explore their own passions and interests.
