POPEYE Issue 799
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.

How To Be A Man
A boy will grow up no matter what. However, this is not what we are trying to find out in this edition of “How To Be A Man.” What is the definition of a man? Someone independent and responsible? You may already be a modest man when thought to be one. Discussing about it may not be a manly thing to do but Popeye editors still spent hours and hours concluding it to the lists of 100 man-like manners. Let’s start it simply with how to dress like a gentleman. You may say, never mind that! Well you are still a baby and gave a long way to be a man.
