POPEYE Issue 808
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
2 years since the renewal of Popeye magazine. Everything seemed fuzzy back then because we are overwhelmed by the drastic but great changes. Trying to define a city boy is still a hard thing but we can surely tell you that a city boy does not call himself by the clothes he wears or where he lives. More importantly, he’s always a kind gentleman. He’s a kind of guy who’s happy to offer a seat on the train to the elderly. He has a principle and endless curiosities. Above all, he’s eager to go out to the world for a great adventure. This edition of “Go Adventure!” consists of all sorts of adventures for city boys – road trip across the land of america, the Siberian train, or even a quest for the heart of gold. Adventure is what a city boy needs.
