For a short six year period back in the 1950′s, Gentry Magazine kept an eye on the modern man’s lifestyle as a “cultural bible” of sorts. Covering everything from home, cars, sport, and drink, Gentry influenced their readers and now continues to share its insight through the new book, The Gentry Man: A Guide for the Civilized Male.
The book collects the very best from 22 issues of the magazine. InStyle fashion director, Hal Rubenstein authored the book which gives a glimpse into a man’s world during the 1950′s. Out today on the Harper Collins imprint. Available from Amazon.
More than fifty years after it ceased publication, Gentry magazine is still one of the most influential men’s magazines ever created.
