Man About Town – 10th Anniversary Issue
This is Man About Town’s 10th Anniversary Issue. Within its pages is a decade’s worth of living, loving, fighting and working to make the magazine what it is now. It’s a great ship, and we couldn’t be prouder of it, or the hundreds of exceptional talents that have crossed its course. From the briefest of flings to the longest of relationships, each of those people has helped to steer the boat to where we are today.
Over the past decade, the magazine has been responsible for the debut cover shoots of Brooklyn Beckham and “hot felon” Jeremy Meeks, guest edits by Hedi Slimane and has featured industry’s most sought after talent in the fashion and creative fields including David Beckham, Jack O’Connell and James Franco.
In celebration of the magazine’s 10th anniversary year, Man About Town is pleased to announce an incredibly special 188 page portfolio by Mario Testino, who has photographed the two covers for this issue, working alongside a selection of esteemed stylists; Lucinda Chambers, James Valeri, George Cortina, Paul Cavaco and David Bradshaw.
Within the portfolio, multi-faceted cover star Jared Leto sits down with Eve Barlow to talk about the evolution of his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars and the Hollywood film industry. Alongside him is Brazilian football superstar Neymar Jr. who offers an insight into his life, on and off the pitch. Either side of the features are six contrasting fashion stories, captured by Mario’s renowned lens — it’s a great honour to have him part of this landmark issue.
It seems strange,10 years in, to talk now about a new beginning. But that is what this is. We want this magazine to be for all men: gay, straight, young, old, curious or just stumbling through. There should be room for all, within.
That is where we are headed. This is just where we start.
