It’s always good to know who you’re dealing with, so let us introduce ourselves. We’re MEL, a new kind of men’s publication—with a new kind of man and a new kind of aspiration in mind.
MEL is for men who measure themselves by something other than (or at the very least, in addition to) their interests in sports cars, barrel-aged Scotch and designer socks. We’re particularly fascinated by people who take the road less traveled (and hope to inspire those of you who long to do so). They’re not interested in being conventional anyway, and neither are we. Instead, we want to learn from them, and to pass on their wisdom to others.
In the meantime, we hope you’re intrigued by this first taste of what we’re all about.
