Town House from vintage PlayBoy article featured in Issue 16

WELCOME TO MANTIQUEXPLORER - an online portal to all things 'manly'...


Hosted by the same enthusiastic team that produce VE magazine – the in print, and online publication for those with a passion for well-made vintage items with heritage, charm and individuality. Interestingly, at least half of the VE subscribers are men – with an age range from 25 to 65 - which is why there’s a Mantiques section in each and every issue.

For this site, we have trawled through our Mantiques archives and pulled out a carefully selected range of informative articles, on motoring, clothing, furniture and collectables, and placed them in your very own virtual Man-cave for your pure reading pleasure - and the good news is - they're FREE!

After enjoying your free selection, check out what else we have on offer from the VE archives, and go treat yourself to a back issue or two of the magazine – it won’t disappoint. However, be warned: it’s likely that your partner will enjoy the magazine as much as you!

You can subscribe to VE magazine easily online here or buy back issues to complete your collection here.
