Proper Magazine Issue 20 - Cover 1
Proper Magazine Issue 20
Proper began life as a fanzine more than a decade ago, and has evolved from cult status into a collectible menswear title printed four times a year and distributed all over the world.
Proper works with well-respected brands such as adidas, Levi’s Vintage, Clarks Originals, Barbour, Edwin and Baracuta, as well as a variety of smaller independent labels. In late 2015, Proper wrote the words for the adidas Spezial book.
Founding editors Neil Summers and Mark Smith continue at the helm to this day, now working on Proper full time from their Manchester base. Neil’s background is working in television, as well as various side projects for Levi’s, Timberland and adidas.
Mark began writing for fanzines as a teenager, eventually founding his own football publication, being was one of the founding editors of Stand Fanzine. He first started work at one of the UK's leading independents Oi Polloi, creating their unique and irreverent style and working on both digital and print projects. He also oversaw their social media presence. He has since worked for brands such as Reebok Classics UK, Klattermusen, adidas Originals and more than a dozen others.
With a solid Manchester base, Proper has continued to make its mark in 2016, working on high profile projects for well-known brands while building on the magazine's development.
