Cover Battle: Town & Country or Time Out New York

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle, where each Thursday we throw two magazines in a pit of fire and see which lasts the longest. Sort of.

This week we have Town & Country versus Time Out New York. T&C went with a photograph of Lauren Hutton from 1968. There’s also a headline that reads “Hawaii’s Sexiest Secret: Bikini Island.” This confuses us, because isn’t a bikini considered standard clothing there? Maybe it’s a sexy secret because even dudes wear bikinis? And dogs! You’ll have to read the article to find out.


TONY
went with a giant gold hamburger for its cover. The only thing missing is some silver fries and a bronze milkshake. Oh, and ruby dipping sauce.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
