The Grand Master of mens magazines. Launching in New York in 1931, GQ has gone on to become the leading light in mens lifestyle editorials. With its own stand alone magazines in countries such as UK, Australia, Germany, Japan and Italy.
The publication focuses on fashion, style, and culture for men, though articles on food, movies, fitness, sex, music, travel, sports, technology, and books are also featured
Oh and watch out for TenT making an appearance in the June edition of British GQ.
The go to for the fitness conscious man. Mens Health is the world's largest men's magazine brand, with 35 editions in 59 countries.
Although originally started as a men's health magazine, it currently covers various men's lifestyle topics such as fitness, nutrition, fashion, and sexuality.
Another stalwart in the mens magazine world. Esquire has been around since 1933, a magazine for the decreeing man. Focusing on culture coverage, political developments, celebrity interviews, mens fashion & grooming, plus food & drink advice.
Men's Journal is a monthly men's lifestyle magazine focused on outdoor recreation and comprising editorials on the outdoors, environmental issues, health and fitness, style and fashion and gear.
Interesting until very recently you could not view the Mens Journal website outside of the US (well certainly not in the UK). Luckily they have now lifted that and the rest of the world can now enjoy their content - and it's good stuff.
Australian's largest independent website for men. Delivering news and advice on style, health, business, travel & food.
D'marge is a go to for a perhaps a cooler differing view on life from the classic publications.
