POPEYE Issue 824
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
The Ways To Be A Man
There’s no denying you are becoming a man. It’s tough and it’s confusing. But when you’re struggling how to be a man, this book should come in handy, “Otoko No Saho” (translates into “man’s manners”) by our city man and a great author, Shotaro Ikenami. The author had lived through the progressive age of Showa (1926-89) and written a breadth of knowledge about personal maintenances, houses, food and women. Although it was 35 years ago (Ikenami-sensei was 58 then), many of what’s in this book are still true to us today. If he was here today, I wonder what he’d have written. In this edition of “The Ways To Be A Man” you can read Popeye’s version of “Otoko No Saho”. What’s more, many more related features by us will point you to the right direction of becoming a man. You’ll be surprised how much you can change.
