'Magazine for City Boys'
For December 2023, Popeye hits the road with their golden-brown 'Good packing guide for a short travel' edition. Full of packing tips, essentials and route suggestions, if you're seeking a winter escape — aren't we all? — this is the magazine for you. (Particularly helpful if you're also fluent in Japanese, of course).
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.’
