Men's Vogue was a monthly men's magazine that covered fashion, design, art, culture, sports and technology. On October 30, 2008 Condé Nast announced that they intended to fold the magazine into Vogue proper as a bi-annual subscriber's supplement. However, the magazine has ceased to be published since its original folding date.

Cover stories[edit]

The magazine featured a profile of George Clooney[1] in its inaugural issue. Since then, athletes like Roger Federer[2] and Tiger Woods,[3] actors like Denzel Washington[4] and Viggo Mortensen,[5] and political figures like Tony Blair[6] and Barack Obama[7] have been featured on the cover. The magazine received praise[8] for its December 2007 issue, with Will Smith[9] on the cover, for celebrating African-American men.

Content[edit]

The magazine featured celebrities, athletes, powerbrokers, and lesser known men of style. Areas covered included art and architecture, travel and food, politics and finance, books and sports, custom tailoring and fine watches, and other topics. The magazine added a tag line below its logo in November 2008 (its final issue), "Style is how you live."

Regular features[edit]

The magazine presented a yearly list of its chosen American visionaries.[10] Recipients of the 2007 recognition included Ralph Lauren,[11] actor Owen Wilson and director Wes Anderson.[12] It also featured profiles in each issue of everyday stylish and successful men in its Life Studies section.[13]
