POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”.

(JAPANESE LANGUAGE ONLY)

The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.  

Popeye – Issue 914: Records & Watches

"Why do you bother to do that?"
There are many things in the world today. A smartphone would suffice.
Records and watches are just like that. But for these two
There is certainly a special excitement that can be obtained only by "doing it out of the way".
While this special feature tastes the charm of classic and retro things,
Skillfully moving away from the preconceived notions of “good old things,”
A book for discovering new and unique discoveries from records and watches.
