Man about Town started as a trade magazine for men's clothes before being revamped into one of the first sophisticated monthly magazines for men. The 1961 feature spread; Leaders of the Tory Party (March 1961) is such an incredibly striking opener that I always remember this publication. I also particularly like the ever changing contents page. I would love to own some copies of this magazine as I think there is something quite special about it.
