Details Editor Addresses Closure Rumors

A solid non-answer answer.

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 11.24.16 AMDetails editor in chief Dan Peres has some thoughts on all the rumors that the magazine will soon fold into GQ or disappear completely. Unfortunately, those thoughts don’t amount to much.

In an interview with WWD, Peres addressed the talk without actually saying anything definitive:

I can say this: for 15 years, I have heard these rumors, and I am sitting here talking to you today as we put out a 15th anniversary issue, and I am still in this office. The magazine is still here. That should say enough. Literally, for 15 years, I have heard this. And so, if I packed my boxes and got a résumé together every time I’d heard these rumors, I would be on an episode of ‘Hoarders’ right now — we’d be surrounded by boxes and stacks of résumés. It is something that I believe exists in an echo chamber, and to date, has not proven true.

In other words, Details has existed, it exists now, but it might not later. Which is exactly what the rumor suggests.
