POPEYE Issue 803
What is POPEYE magazine?
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
POPEYE magazine Founded: 1976 Type: Monthly (on sale from the 10th of every month) Readership: ages 25 to 35 – and anyone who thinks of himself as a city boy Topics: fashion, food, outdoor activities, travel and life in our favorite cities New York, Paris, London and Tokyo
This Is Where And What City Boys Live For.
I always wish to be in my favorite room with my favorite things around. Good taste is alright, but the good sprit of enthusiasm is better when it comes to how you arrange a room. Many of my collections are trivial to some people but they are a fortune to me. The goal is not to complete, but it is to have fun gathering bits and pieces as I feel like it. In this edition of “This Is Where And What City Boys Live For.”, we studied the city boys’ rooms from all around the world. The room filled with owner’s personality speaks more than himself. Don’t you agree?
