'Nylon Guys' Is Going Out of Print

'Nylon Guys' Is Going Out of Print:

Nylon Guys, the bimonthly, male-targeted companion to Nylon, is going out of print after 11 years. A spokesperson confirmed to Fashionista Wednesday that the April/May issue will be the magazine's last as it shifts more resources to its women's title and to the web.

The good news is that no one will be laid off in the process, as no one person was dedicated solely to the print product, the spokesperson said.

Nylon Guys was introduced in 2004 as a supplement to Nylon's September and March issues before it was spun into its own regularly published magazine. Though its circulation remained modest, its readership was young for a print title, with 38 percent of readers between the ages of 18 and 24, according to the publication's media kit. Currently, it has a web audience of approximately 1.5 million readers per month.

Both Nylon and Nylon Guys were acquired by Diversis Capital in May 2014, and have seen a number of staffing changes since, including a new CEO and editor in chief for Nylon.
