Details To Break Away From GQ‘s ‘Style’

In a recent interview, Details man Dan Peres said part of the magazine’s online strategy was to break away from the current “destination” site model of men.style.com, the hub it shares with GQ. Peres says the split will happen next year.

For years, people have referred to Details as a magazine for gay men. How do you respond to that?

I think it’s something that lives in the press, the media. It’s not something our readers dwell on. My job is to create a great magazine that appeals to our audience — straight men, gay men, everybody. Like I said, I’m editing a magazine for men like me, with my interests. To be honest, I don’t think about it much, except when the media — like you — asks.
