The rakish fellow you met last night with the suave dance moves, smoothly rehearsed lines, and your number listed as “Goddess #14” in his phone is fine for a flirt, but probably isn’t meet-the-parents material.
Used as an adjective to describe a dashing ladies’ man or a streamlined ship, rakish comes from the fusing of rake + -ish. He is stylishly handsome and prone to saucy, fast behavior. Synonyms include charming, flashy, and immoral.

Today I'm Wearing
The last Bank Holiday of the Spring is over, and so I have return to work, post Bank Holiday blues. Today I'm wearing a navy suit from Burton Menswear, with a white shirt and navy tie and pocket square, which are both from Reiss.
