Moore will be succeeded by GQ Style editor-in-chief Will Welch, effective January 2018.
“I don’t know any one person who’s had more effect on the way men dress in America,” GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson told Business of Fashion. “Jim’s is an almost mythic influence. When we threw an anniversary party several years back where Kanye West performed live on stage, even Kanye rapped about the talent and legend of Jim Moore.”
“I’m sure when you get slightly pushed out of the nest, it’s a wobbly feeling — especially for me, it’s been my life for four decades,” Moore told Business of Fashion. “I’m really excited about staying connected to this but looking out there for other projects.”
