A sartorial dictionary if there ever was one. For the first time since 2014, Popeye returns with the 'City Boy's ABC' — a comprehensive (and alphabetical) guide to the best of Fall/Winter fashion, from Shetland sweaters to Gore-tex. Start with A for 'American Trad' and make your way over to Y for the 'Yellow Pages', a list of 100 shops to visit for all your City Boy needs.
And worry not, City Girls! There's plenty in here for you too.
According to the editors:
‘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.’
