It's Coming: The Rig Out from Oi Polloi, #3.

Way back when, I brought you the very first issue of The Rig Out, Oi Polloi's zine. Well, their latest effort, issue #3, is set to touch down at Secret Forts in the coming days. The new issue promises to be all that you've come to love from The Rig Out but, better. According the boys behind it across the pond, "This issue sees The Rig-Out documenting the Norwegian wilderness, with record-breaking cyclist, James Bowthorpe strutting (or should we say cycling) his stuff in some of the smartest garments money can buy.
Elsewhere in the issue there's a heavy Italian influence, with the the Paninari' of Milano '84 setting the precedent style-wise and Oi Polloi filling in the blanks, bringing things up to date in their own unique way.
The format's been improved - more pages, better binding, nicer paper stock. The 'interweb' may well be embedded into our daily routines - but isn't it nice to have The Rig-Out stick an inky finger in your virtual day-to-day?
As aforementioned, issues one and two of The Rig Out talked the talk, but in this third issue they walk the walk. Apart from James, he rides his bike..."
Stay tuned for more info on how to get your hands on one. This time around, it's not exclusive to Secret Forts, so if you're up in the Thirties, stop by the newly opened Nepenthes store for one(well worth the visit). Or, there's another spot on the world wide web you may know that will also be offering it.
Here's some images to wet your whistle.
