GQ (originally called Gentlemen's Quarterly) is a monthly men's magazine that focuses on men's fashion, style, and culture. It also features articles on food, movies, fitness, sex, music, travel, sports, technology, and books. It is generally perceived as more upscale and sophisticated than lad mags, such as Maxim or FHM.

Gentlemen's Quarterly was launched in 1931 as Apparel Arts, a fashion quarterly for men which was published for many years in association with Esquire. The name was changed in 1957, and the magazine moved from quarterly to monthly publication in the 1970s, still concentrating on only fashion and style.

In 1983 Conde Nast Publications took over the publication and editor Art Cooper changed the course of the magazine, introducing articles beyond fashion and establishing GQ as a general men's magazine in competition with Esquire.

Jim Nelson was named editor-in-chief of GQ in February 2003. During Nelson’s tenure at the magazine, he has worked as both a writer and an editor of several National Magazine Award-nominated pieces.

In April of 2007, GQ caused a stir among Smith College students by including Smith College on a list of "Where not to find her", alongside "the family reunion" and "the Supreme Court". Smithies took umbrage, since the rest of the article, entitled "Where To Find Her 2007", described "the best spots on the planet to meet [smart and beautiful women]."
