The magazine covered a range of topics related to men's interests, including fashion, style, sports, and entertainment. It was known for its cutting-edge design and photography, as well as its frank and sometimes controversial editorial content.

Modern Man was founded by a group of publishers who had worked on a previous men's magazine called Stag. The new publication was intended to be a more modern and sophisticated version of Stag, and it quickly gained a following among young, urban men.

In addition to its editorial content, Modern Man was known for hosting a series of annual "Modern Man Awards," which honored men in various fields for their achievements and contributions.

During its run, Modern Man published articles by a number of notable writers, including Jack Kerouac, Norman Mailer, and Ray Bradbury.

Despite its success, Modern Man faced declining readership in the late 1960s, and it was eventually merged with another men's magazine, Cavalier, in 1967.

Today, Modern Man is remembered as an important part of the cultural landscape of the 1950s and 1960s. Its coverage of fashion, style, and entertainment provides a window into the interests and values of men during this era.{{Categories}}
