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 923: Cool rooms around the world and their secrets

What kind of room should a city boy aim for?
It's definitely a cool room.
I would never say I'm going to have valuable and expensive furniture.
In the cool rooms around the world that Popeye visited this time,
A chair from somewhere in Asia that I found at a thrift shop,
A plate given to me by a neighbor, Sori Yanagi's kettle, stones I picked up at the sea,
There was a shelf of Dieter Rams that I had been looking for for a long time.
Come to think of it, there was also a senior student who used a car cloth to clean the floor.
By carefully observing each piece of furniture and lifestyle,
The secret of being “cool” will be revealed (mystery style).
