Monocle boasts press bureaux in six cities, its own creative agency, a 24-hour online radio station, a formidable book-publishing partner in Gestalten, cafés in London and Tokyo, and brick-and-mortar stores around the globe.
The voice at the heart of Monocle is gentle, but authoritative. Reading its print magazine, or listening to one of its radio bulletins, is like listening to a friend — perhaps one a little bit older and wiser — as they narrate their adventures around the world in search of the best in life. It speaks confidently on a number of topics: business, politics, urban architecture, the state of modern journalism, the pleasures of fine cooking, or the mechanics of a beautiful watch. They’re attentive to the physical and mental pleasures of life. It’s an approach that makes ears prick up.
We were honoured to be the first to represent Monocle in Amsterdam through our precious store at De Clercqstraat, Amsterdam. We share a deep appreciation not just for life, but for a life lived well. Misc Store is the primary home of Monocle in the Netherlands, stocking a range of Monocle books, notebooks, writing tools and accessories. We’re excited to see what our partnership will bring to the Dutch stationery scene. For our international customers looking to buy Monocle online – nice to meet you. We ship internationally, after all.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
