About GQ

Each issue of GQ features the freshest fashion of the season, delves into the lives of notable men of taste, and takes your knowledge of cars, watches, and world travel to the next level. Published since 1931, GQ has become known for offering an advanced course in how to live a more stylish life.

2018 ADWEEK Hottest Men’s Magazine
"GQ’s style coverage just got a redo under Will Welch, who became creative director of GQ and will soon be taking on an even bigger role as editor in chief. Welch, also editor of GQ Style, replaces Jim Nelson, who has been at the helm for more than 15 years and, this year, oversaw features on high-profile figures ranging from Colin Kaepernick to Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott. The magazine’s journalism earned the industry’s highest honor: Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah won the Pulitzer Prize for reporting for her piece “A Most American Terrorist: The Making of Dylann Roof,” published last September. As Condé Nast further invests in video, GQ is among those titles that will lead the way when it releases its OTT channel."
