During his tenure, DETAILS editor-in-chief Daniel Peres has recruited such columnists as Michael Chabon, Augusten Burroughs, Anderson Cooper, Bruce Wagner, and Rick Moody to the magazine, along with top-tier photographers such as Steven Klein, Terry Richardson, Michael Thompson, Tom Munro, and Mary Ellen Mark. DETAILS demands the finest writing and photography in the industry, and its contributors are reflections of the magazine’s dedication to providing the highest-quality content to its readership.

3.0 out of 5 stars Give Me the Details March 15, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Details is a mildly interesting magazine that is geared toward men of various ages and lifestyles. The main group that Details aims to capture is the 17 to 35 year- old male but there are articles in each magazine that could be appealing to men of many different ages, mostly in the middle to upper income groups.

Some things about Details quickly set it apart from other magazines. One difference is the "departments". Most magazines have departments, but instead of talking about the same things each month, these departments vary in their content (the only exceptions being "Know- Tell" and the "The Details"). Each one contains similar stories from one month to the next, but with different subtitles, helping to make each issue a little fresher than it would otherwise be.

As far as the writing goes, Details offers a great deal of diversity for a magazine. Yes, it is generally focused on things of interest to men, but it covers a very broad range of interests. You can find articles in this magazine on such diverse topics as the death penalty, raising kids, buying a new coat, setting up an internet business, breaking up with a girlfriend, or purchasing the best vodka. There are articles geared toward single men and married men, as well as younger men and middle- aged men.

I like some of the articles found here but there is one problem I have with the writing in Details. It is common to find eye- catching headlines on the cover of Details that tempt you to find out more. This is nothing new and most every magazine does this. But the problem is that many of these eye- popping stories fail to keep you amazed when you read them. Take for example an article in a recent issue. On the front, it reads "Is Your Wife a Bad Mom"? It sound like an engaging, intellectual read.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you like ads, you'll like Details February 25, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
In the first 60 pages of the most recent issue I received, there is a letter from the editor, two pages which serve as a table of contents, and fifty-seven pages of advertising. The remainder of the magazine doesn't get much better. I don't have the time to search for articles among a maze of ads.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Wanted August 29, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I bought a subscription to this magazine because it was a bargain and the covers always are eye-appealing and intriguing. However, I am disappointed with the magazine itself, now that I have been receiving it for about six months. As some of the other reviewers have noted, a huge portion of the magazine is taken up with glossy advertising, most of which is for clothing that only investment bankers or movie stars are likely to purchase. I like clothes, but it would be nice to see clothing lines other than couture advertised. More disturbingly, the magazine seems to have a split personality in its approach to masculinity. Many articles are written from the viewpoint of the stereotypical uber-masculine American male, with lots of references to heterosexual relationships, and other "guy stuff." Yet other articles come off as attempting to be from a gay-friendly viewpoint. I prefer the latter, but I don't see the point in having gay-friendly material when the rest of the magazine is trying to be a go-to guide for red-blooded males. I guess I don't fully "get" the editorial viewpoint that Details (purports to be) espousing. Consequently, I won't be ordering another subscription.

1.0 out of 5 stars next to no content, but plenty of ads... September 3, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
When I was in high school Details was a pretty cool magazine, lots of cutting edge stuff was featured and for some one who was a dork gave some interesting style tips.
I recently resubscribed and gotta tell ya that I wasted [money amount]. The articles are almost never more than 500 words long, and usually "think" pieces that seem tossed off while the author was in a cab on the way to the editorial meeting.
A lot of pretty ads though...

4.0 out of 5 stars A wanna-be serious magazine for folks with ADHD August 27, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Jeff Goldblum's character in "The Big Chill" said that he couldn't write an article longer than the average person could read during a, er, "trip to the library" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, know what I mean?). The writers at Details seems to have the same marching orders. In these hectic times, maybe that's not so bad. The articles I have read are well researched and nicely bite-sized. I actually finished the entire magazine between PM mail delivery and breakfast the next day. The topics they covered in my first issue ranged from fashion to health concerns. And, again, they cover the topics in very few, well-written pages. I do think the models look like under-fed children but at my age, that could be tunnel-vision (grey hair, I remember Filmore East, you get the picture?). My suggestion, take a look. It's a magazine with an interesting voice and it may be for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars LOTS of ads, nice pictures, not much substance September 12, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I got this subscription free as part of an Amazon promotion, and now realize I would not subscribe to Details if I had to pay for it. BUT, if you're looking for a lot of nicely-photographed ads, some nice (airbrushed and Photoshopped) pics of celebrities and models, and quick-to-read articles that lack any real depth, this is your mag! But why would you pay for it? You can see all of this online at dozens of websites for free. While I still love holding and reading a great magazine with terrific photography, in this case I vote for "Save a Tree."
