Gear Patrol Magazine – Issue 07
Gear Patrol is an award-winning digital, social and print publication that reaches nearly two million young, affluent men seeking inspiration for a life well lived.
WELCOME TO ISSUE SEVEN
Issue Seven is our celebration of style and design. Inside its 200+ pages, we analyzed what it takes to turn an office chair into a thing of beauty, an accidental invention into a culinary essential and a 1970s French automobile into one of the most evocative cars of the last century, and so much more.
In this issue:
