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.

LCM - Day Three Highlights
The last day of London Collections Men had the big guns out
Luxe sportswear as streetwear with metallic and see through detailing.
Sharp, tailored office attire. Love the detail on the blazers.
One of the best collections of the week. Sporty and athletic, wearable and modern, the techno, digital prints are some of the best around and look even better with the see through panels. The only worry would be making sure you had a pair of abs good enough to wear this superb collection.
A superb collection that evoked 1960s schoolboys. The whole show had a feel of ease and simplicity, achieved with the offbeat David Hockney bright colours. Elegant, wearable and creative, this was my highlight of the season. Who would not want to be a school boy dressed like this? Wonderful bags too.
Another strong season for E. Tautz. Highlights included the shiny, silky prints and the luxury evening wear.
If there is one man that epitomises the rakish gent it it Mr Ford. This season he continued in his show of over the top, tailored blazers, for the first time paired with a T shirt. In a show season full of printed blazers, the one shown here was by far the best.
