The weekend Financial Times just isn’t what it used to be. While we truly enjoy Chrystia Freeland‘s The A-Train column, we miss the column hers replaces—namely, her fellow Canadian Tyler Brûlé’s Fast Lane column. A mishmash of product recommendations, travel advice, urban planning prescriptions, and narratives of one jet-set life, his column was informative and irritating both. While we enjoyed eating up his urban planning suggestions, we found the details of his dietary regimen tiring. Tyler’s final column can be found here, a more visual version of The Economist and Der Spiegel.

Monocle will retail for £5 in the UK.
