Esquire Editor Jay Fielden Steps Down After 3 Years

After three years as Esquire’s top editor, Jay Fielden on Thursday announced that he would be leaving leave the venerable men’s magazine.

“Today — after a lot of long and careful thinking — I have decided it is time to depart as Esquire’s editor in chief, three and a half years after I arrived,” Fielden said in a lengthy Instagram statement. “For me, the time has simply come to press on in a new direction, perhaps more than one, before I get struck by male pattern baldness.”

Fielden said the latest edition of Esquire, which dropped earlier this week, would be his last. Before serving as editor-in-chief, Fielden led Hearst’s Town & Country after joining the company in 2011. He still remains on the masthead as an editorial director of that publication — a title he will also lose, the New York Times reported.
