“It’s been tough the last few months,” Conde Nast president Bob Sauerberg said in an interview. “Consumers love the magazine. It’s not fair or right.”Details boasts a circulation of about 560,000 readers. It was founded in 1982 then acquired by Condé Nast in 1988. In a bid to retain the fashion designers who currently advertise in Details, Condé Nast plans to increase the frequency of it’s twice-a-year GQ Style publication.
This truly is an end of an era. During my twenties, I had a subscription to the publication. Loved it back then.
To step into the niche left by Details, GQ Style, which has been a supplement to its parent magazine, will become a quarterly and will also have a beefed-up digital presence, according to the email. However, it doesn't sound like Details EIC Dan Peres and publisher Drew Schutte will be staying on to help with it — the email confirmed that the two will leave the company.
