Indy Men's Magazine


Indy Men's Magazine, also known as Independent Men's Magazine, was a lifestyle publication in the United States. It catered to men and covered topics such as fashion, style, health, fitness, and entertainment.


Indy Men was founded in 1999 by Mark A. Zappa in Tampa, Florida. It was initially launched as a regional magazine focused on the Tampa Bay area, but later expanded to cover a broader audience.

Over the years, Indy Men showcased exclusive interviews from prominent figures, including actors, musicians, and other celebrities. The magazine also covered local events, reviews on latest gadgets, and sports activities.

In 2009, due to the decline of print media and the effects of the Great Recession, Indy Men ceased publication.


Indy Men Magazine was targeted at the modern man who was looking for an independent and resourceful outlook towards life. The publication featured profiles of successful businessmen and entrepreneurs, along with articles on cars, technology, and travel.

Indy Men also featured interviews with musicians, athletes, actors, and other prominent figures. The magazine had numerous columns, including "The Rules," which offered tips on fashion and style, and "Man Cave," which covered the latest in gear and gadgets.

Audience and Reception

Indy Men had a relatively small readership but was respected for its focus on men's lifestyle topics. The magazine's distinctive voice and unique content helped it stand out in a crowded market.

However, Indy Men faced challenges competing with larger, more established men's publications like Maxim and GQ. The magazine's decline and eventual closure were one of many casualties of the print media industry's upheaval in the 2000s and 2010s.


Indy Men magazine was a unique and independent voice in the men's publishing world. Its focus on lifestyle topics and interviews with prominent figures set it apart from its competitors.

Today, Indy Men is remembered as a publication that challenged traditional notions of masculinity and provided a fresh perspective on what it meant to be a modern man in the twenty-first century.{{Categories}}
