While it has been rumored that Details would shutter in recent years, The Wall Street Journal confirms that the magazine’s last issue will be it’s December/January issue. Details was founded in 1982 and acquired by Condé Nast in 1988. Attributed to declining advertising pages, the focus on Details will be shifted to GQ Style, which will transition from a biannual to a quarterly.

Eventually, Details.com will redirect to GQStyle.com. Condé Nast president Bob Sauerberg shares, “It’s been tough the last few months. Consumers love the magazine. It’s not fair or right.” Sauerberg suggests that about twenty percent of Details staffers will continue to work at other Condé Nast publications.
