ShortList is a free weekly magazine published in the United Kingdom, which launched on 20 September 2007.[3] The magazine has the biggest circulation of any men's lifestyle magazine in Britain[2] with Martin Robinson as its editor. Mike Soutar, former editorial director of IPC Media, editor of FHM in the UK and US Maxim, is the CEO.[4]

ShortList Media launched Stylist, a similar magazine for women, in 2009.


The magazine is targeted at an audience of professional males.[5] It is given away in London, Manchester and other major cities, and is available to pick up at other locations such as shops and gyms.[6]


The magazine was launched with the slogan "For men with more than one thing on their minds", to differentiate it from "lads' mags" such as FHM and Loaded.

Content includes brief product reviews, pub and bar reviews (Pints and Pistachios), recipes, fashion pages, interviews and a weekly column by Danny Wallace.


According to figures for the second half of 2013, ShortList had an audited circulation of 534,692, and its bi-annual sister publication, Shortlist Mode, had a circulation of 260,615.[2]

ShortList is published by Shortlist Media Ltd, which also publishes Stylist.
