Here is A critque of Esquire from the New York Times:
The ‘Esquire Man’ Is Dead. Long Live the ‘Esquire Man.’
Esquire magazine, long the man’s bible, looks to chart a new course in an era of transgender bathrooms and pink hats.

To that pocket-square-wearing, sidecar-sipping human known as the “Esquire man,” this was life as it was intended to be: a roomful of wags in natty suits throwing back cocktails and trading banter in one of Manhattan’s hottest restaurants, as willowy models and square-jawed movie stars circled the room.
At Esquire magazine’s“Mavericks of Style” dinner, held at Le Coucouon a rainy night this past November, spirits were so high, and consumed so freely, that it might as well have been 1966 — doubly so, since Gay Talese, Esquire’s living monument to the New Journalism of the 1960s, was holding court, dry gin martini in hand, a few yards away from Jay Fielden, Esquire’s new editor in chief.
“There was a period of time when Esquire had a real literary charisma, and there was a culture that responded to it,” said Mr. Fielden, 48, sounding nostalgic as he reclined in a banquette, wearing a steel-bluel Ferragamo suit and sporting what may be the best head of male hair in the magazine industry, a cascade of artfully coifed curls that calls to mind both the belletrist whimsy of Oscar Wilde and the gunslinger gusto of Wild Bill Hickok. “How do you make that urgent to a younger generation?”

The New Esquire Man
At Esquire’s Helm
Esquire was founded in 1933 with a mission “to be the common denominator of masculine interests.” Thirteen editors have tried to define what that means.
Not to alarm anyone unnecessarily, but the following things are going on right now, at this very moment, around the world: India and Pakistan are shooting at each other's airplanes but have not yet decided to drop nuclear bombs on each other. A summit aimed at defusing tensions on the Korean peninsula collapsed before lunch in Hanoi. There is an Ebola outbreak in the Congo to which Doctors Without Borders has had to stop responding because there's also a civil war in the Congo. And the foreign policy of the United States is not far removed from the days in which it was being run by crazy people. Read More
There is no bottom, and no end to what this grotesque creature embodying all the worst instincts of the American psyche might do. Donald Trump has corrupted his office, ransacked the operating norms that allow a healthy democracy to function, and convinced his allies in Congress to abandon their role as a co-equal branch of government. He has even subverted the Constitution, declaring a national emergency when there is no national emergency to seize funds that Congress did not allocate with its power of the purse. There is nothing he won't do. Now that staying out of jail might mean staying in office, we're probably about to find out just what that entails. Read More
The Washington Post would like you to know that the new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has degenerated into open gang warfare, and that they'll be very lucky if they all come out of all this success alive. Just read this account of the "explosion" of bloody mayhem. We all should be accustomed by now to the Dems In Disarray template. (Note the perpetual binary by which the caucus is divided into "liberals" and "moderates." Conservative Democrats apparently do not exist.) But the apocalyptic prose here has been dialed up to 11.
