The Almanac Mag

The Kentucky Gent with Jamon Deaver from The Almanac Mag.

Fellow Kentucky native and  entrepreneur Jamon Deaver alongside the owners of Fig Media launched The Almanac Mag last October as a lifestyle website for today’s dynamic man featuring male focused, original video and editorial content in the areas of; food, drink, style, art, and culture.

Similarly to my site The Almanac Mag is catered towards the average joe. “I thought everyday men like myself deserved a place to express themselves, learn, grow and be entertained,” says Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Jamon Deaver. “For a city of Chicago’s size, there is a real lack of men centric media outlets – blogs, websites, magazines, events – and an overall male social scene…”

The men of Almanac mag are not perfect, closed minded, foodies, fashionistas, or trend chasers. They are however style advisors who have a vested interest in looking good, are respectful of all people and lifestyles, whom value great food and well-crafted cocktails, and last but not least believe that being educated, open minded and well rounded is an attractive trait. The Almanac Mag is a platform to showcase inspiring individuals, and above all a place to have fun, try new things, fail, succeed, and everything in between. To keep up to date on all things from The Almanac Mag team follow them on Twitter and Instagram at @TheAlmanacMag and on Facebook at The Almanac Mag.
