Lightning Magazine Vol. 309Thirdmark Library
Lightning Clutch is a monthly men's lifestyle magazine published in Japan. Featuring epically photographed men's apparel, classic cars, motorcycles and just about every daily-use item you could ever imagine. Lightning takes its inspiration from mid-20th century Americana, and holds the likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando as undisputed style gods. While it's focus is on high end denim and repro Americana apparel, you're just as likely to find articles on film, music, 1960's decor, and vintage American toys.
The majority of Lightning magazine is written in Japanese, but its masterfully photographed clothing and lifestyle pieces and meticulously arranged collages will keep you coming back to turn the pages over and over.
