After a season full of media layoffs and shutdowns, including the closure of Details just last month, it looks like we've lost another good one: The menswear site Four Pins, which is said to be winding down its operations at the start of next year. News that the Complex-owned site would be shuttering first broke on Wednesday, half-buried in a New York Times Critical Shopper column by Jon Caramanica, who interviewed Four Pins founder Lawrence Schlossman — who left his post as editor-in-chief of the site just a month ago — for the article.
A rep for Complex provided the following statement on Friday afternoon:
"After a considerable number of meetings and an arduous process of deliberation, and given the current climate of digital media #menswear, we have decided that, after four years of pummeling the internet with the most fire 'fits, biggest ethers, skin-melting roasts, and having yanked the souls of the fuccbois out of their lifeless bodies, the future of the the best menswear site ever conceived in the long and sordid history of the internet is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
And here's what the site's team had to say about the matter on Twitter.
