Esquire's evolution: no more bullfighting


“There’s no cigar smoke wafting through the pages,and the obligatory three B’s are gone, too — brown liquor, boxing and bullfighting.“ 

Esquire editor in chief Jay Fielden (pictured) in a New York Times piece on the magazine’s evolution. The article has a lot of interesting history on the Esquire brand and how Fielden, who previously worked at the New Yorker, Men’s Vogue, and Town & Country, intends to change it to better fit the zeitgeist. As the broad tides of publishing seem to be favoring online, bite-sized media vs print, here’s hoping Fielden and his staff can keep the classic title relevant.
