Art Appreciation, Cubism and Enrico Coveri

Dudes, how much do you know about art? Some say that art is man’s loftiest endeavor — a mortal attempt to be like God, to create something where there was nothing, to move the spirit and touch the soul. Others say that art is a load of sheep dip. Most of us fall somewhere in […]

Winter is Coming; Jon Snow

The biggest attraction to The Game Of Thrones, is that the people who are trying to do good, keep getting killed off. This doesn’t make sense! We want the HERO! We want the happy ending, the righteous one. We want justice and to kick that painful Lannister King off his arrogant high throne in a […]

The Tie: Still Hanging Around

  The tie has been hanging around for many centuries. It all began when Croat soldiers from the Military in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian words for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the […]

LUSH Men’s Grooming Products Event

Sydney, Australia: Last week, MenStylePower were happily invited to the launch of the new Men’s Grooming products at Lush, and we were pleasantly surprised that it was aimed at Gents like us; not too metro or retro but sit right in the middle of these two extremes. We get our hands dirty, we like to […]

You Are What You Wear – Dolce & Gabbana/ Elton John

Have you ever thought of how wearing a brand can identify you with their values, mission statements and wrong doings? Fashion brands create statement pieces to be recognised without having to look for the logo. It could be the textile print, the fabric, the cut or the colour. Brands also create single image logos so […]

The Devil is in the Detail

As an unbiased team of gents when it comes to fashion, our blog site has remained over the last four years one of observation and inspiration. The MSP team knows that many of us cannot afford the luxury goods that are heavily marketed to us, although we love to look and we love to get […]

Menswear Key Fashion Colours

Our primal instincts are so important when it comes to selecting colors. Colors are visual and a lot is said when, well, you don’t say anything at all. Like a red flag to a bull, we can mistakenly give out the right and wrong signals when we wear certain colors. What are goths saying silently […]

Michael Zavros – A Brilliant Horseman

It always astounds me, when walking through private homes or galleries, how we are awed by art that looks nothing more than a 6 year old’s Sunday lunch scribble. No offense, I’m a lover of fine and delicious things, and I understand the training and natural talent needed to be an artist, yet if it’s […]

A Mark of Dignity!

Every now and then I get a little obsessive about searching for a significant item that will define not only those style lovers who want to break out of the saturated retail market, but also for those unique individuals who aren’t lured into the greed that is consumerism. That very ‘thing’ that I have pondered […]

That Effortless Cool in Men’s Styling

You don’t need to be born in Europe to have effortless ‘Style’. Many dudes we’ve knocked into have this je ne sais quoi – which in French means, ‘I don’t know what’. And as we’d say in the USA, ‘I don’t know what it is, but…’ – It’s a state of mind, an attitude. It […]
