So long, Men’s Knuckle!
As adults, we tend to forget about the little things we loved as kids and teenagers, since our tastes and interests change as the times progress. Take the magazine Men’s Knuckle, for example. Famous for its snapshots of fashionable young men in street clothes accompanied by cheesy and borderline weird captions like “My destination? Ask the sun,” and “How much is the student discount to ‘Adult Station’?”, this magazine was well-loved by people who grew up in the mid to late 2000s. These days fewer people are turning to magazines for fashion inspiration, though, so it’s fallen by the wayside.
Unfortunately, that means the quirky magazine is disappearing. After 18 years of monthly publication, publisher Taiyo Tosho has decided to end the magazine, leaving many who read it as youths feeling sad and nostalgic.
