In the Navy

Bally Spring Collection

Blue is probably one of the most favored colors on us Gents. It’s safe, it can change via a shade up or down. It can be true light or midnight dark. It’s linked to a sapphire, a royal gem, and it is nostalgic. Blue represents the sky, the sea, the waterhole, the Johnny Walker whiskey. It’s the color of your lover’s eyes. It’s the the Mont Blanc pen that you write from. Blue is how you feel when you’re alone. Blue is the color of your son’s PJ’s.

MenStylePower loves Blue. And here are some tips to bringing it into your life. Easily.

Bally (above)

Bally was founded in 1851 in Switzerland by Mr Bally. He had returned from Paris with a pair of silk slippers for his wife, and came up with an idea to produce beautiful shoes for people. History! By 1917 Bally had made over 3.9Million pairs of shoes.

Us gents will know the Bally brand by the dual stripped bag handles that are on the overnight bags, totes, reporter, satchels and men’s shaving bags. These are distinct and unique to the brand which is highly respected today by consumers and competitors alike.

You thought they only did cars, didn’t ya.

BMW Cruise Bike.

The BMW Cruise Bike has instant appeal. Its unique aluminum frame owes its distinctive, unexpected design to hydroforming technology. All seams are smooth-welded and perfectly joined, adding to this bike’s contemporary appearance. Emphasising the BMW Cruise Bike’s laid back character, the cables for the brakes and gear system are hardly visible – in part, they even run inside the frame, which is available in White, Green/Black and White/Blue. The stem with its integrated BMW logo can be individually adjusted to perfectly match the height of the rider. Choice components like the telescopic fork, cantilever brake and Shimano Alivio 24-speed derailleur system complement the extraordinary design and underscore just how much riding pleasure this bike provides.

Only $37,000!

Rolex

Everybody knows that Rolex is a watchmaker that creates luxurious timepieces. All of their watches are considered as luxury and all of them come with a very expensive price making it hard for most watch collectors to collect just like this Rolex Yacht Master II.

This timepiece is made of a yellow gold material that composes the case and the bracelet of this watch while the bezel is highlighted in blue holding the tachymeter scale in yellow. The Rolex has a white dial accented with blue, red, and gold from the sub dials and hour markers. It is equipped with a regatta countdown timer from 0 to 10 minutes.

This Rolex Yacht Master II is definitely not the watch you would want to miss – if you can part with a mere $37,000.

Travel in Style.

Globetrotter Luggage (Cruise Line Collection)

The perfect luggage whether you’re chartering a yacht with pals, or have opted to book a stateroom and cruise around the Med. Globe-Trotter have been handcrafting luxury suitcases since 1897 and HRH Queen Elizabeth is perhaps the brand’s most famous fan, having chosen a collection of their cases for her honeymoon luggage. Other famous Globe-Trotter devotees include Sir Winston Churchill and Sir Edmund Hilary.

The suitcases are made from Vulcan Fibre, a mysterious fibre invented in Britain in the 1850s which is ultra-light as well as very hard-wearing. The fibre is patented and its composition remains Globe-Trotter’s most closely guarded secret.

The cruise collection suitcases are an attractive royal blue with navy leather accents on the corners and straps. Lined in fresh blue and white striped cotton, the cases were inspired by yacht races on the Isle of Wight. For an extra touch of luxury you can have your initials hand-painted onto the case. And you aren’t someone who knows how to travel light, never fear! The suitcases are available in no less than nine sizes, so you could purchase a selection to ensure that you have space for all of those essential items. A word of warning: they’re so groovy that you may not want to unpack!

Nothing like zipping out a Mont Blanc to sign your credit card receipt…

Montblanc

…unveiled their new limited edition called the Gaius Maecenas Limited Edition Pen, in honor of the father of all Patrons of the Art and one of the greatest supporters of young artists, Gaius Maecenas.

Targeting especially collectors, the pen has an elegant design, influenced by antique and roman ornaments and elements. The lacquered barrel is shaped like a marble roman column, the clip reminds one of an old sword and the first verse of the poem from Virgil – an homage to Gaius Maecenas – decorates the cap. This beautiful pen is embellished with an 18 carat gold nib, rhodium plated with special engraving while the barrel is decorated with engraved 925 Sterling silver rings. Stunning.

Limited to 4 810 pieces, the price of this pen is set at 2 000 €.
