Meet the Esquire Team

Style, Storytelling, Culture, Attitude. Est. 1933.

Text, Font, Graphics,

Esquire is a remarkable brand with a remarkable history. When Arnold Gingrich debuted the first issue eighty-nine years ago, he said he wanted it to be all things to all men. "This is difficult to accomplish, all at a crack," he admitted in his first Letter from the Editor, but in time Esquire established itself as an American fashion force and a home of legendary, culture-defining acts of storytelling. A tonic to the woes of the world, as he would later describe the publication, in the February 1942 edition, just months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Over nine decades, Esquire has built on this heritage, as then-Edior-in-Chief Terry McDonell wrote in 1993, "with the understanding that although there is a lot more to a man than what he wears, dressing well and looking good can make a significant difference in his life." That remains true to this day.
