Having a sense of personal style is not limited to clothing or bags, the right shoes or a nice watch.  Ask most people what makes a man attractive, interesting, polished or simply worth being around and you’ll hear words like “personality,” “intelligence,” “taste” or “intellectual curiosity.”

Cultivating a good reading list is, in our perspective, vital.  You don’t have to read every day or pick up every issue, but you should make a point of keeping informed about the world.  Several of the publications below produce both online and paper editions.

As fans of well crafted periodicals, we encourage you to pick up a physical issue every now and then; nothing quite matches the pleasure of flipping through a well laid-out magazine.  Tablet computers, the iPad being our hands-down choice, allows for easy digestion of all manner of interesting media as well (and allows you to quickly hop onto OTC and see what’s new.)

This list regularly evolves, so feel free to let us know about your favorites.  Just stroll over to the Contact OTC page and drop us a line.
