Details is an American monthly men's magazine published by Condé Nast Publications, founded in 1982 by Annie Flanders.[2] Though primarily a magazine devoted to fashion and lifestyle, Details also features reports on relevant social and political issues.[3][4]

History[edit]

Alan Patricof bought the magazine in 1987. Condé Nast bought the magazine a year later for $2 million. Its current format stems from an October 2000, relaunch of the title, following a transfer of the magazine from Condé Nast to sibling division Fairchild Publications.[5]

Between its last issue at Condé Nast and first at Fairchild, publication of Details was temporarily suspended. This allowed for extensive redesign and strategic repositioning of the magazine.

Staff and contributors[edit]

Frequent contributors include Augusten Burroughs and Michael Chabon.

Its current editor is Dan Peres, the husband of Australian actress Sarah Wynter.

Previous contributors have included Beauregard Houston-Montgomery.[6]
