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 [...]

Zegna: You’re NOT Wearing That Are You?

When you go to Italy, the very first word you should learn is Ermenegildo Zegna. Pronounce it like this, Er-Men-e-Gil-Do. Zen-ya. With an Italian mafia accent of course. Imagine you’re in a scene from The GodFather. Chest out. Curl the sides of your mouth down, pout. Now try it again. Bellissimo! Founded in 1910, the [...]

DENIM NATION – Fifty Five Jeans Project

This brand is just darn cool. It reminds us of the Nordic power crossing the English Channel. It reminds us of Conan the Barbarian. It’s masculine, off-putting, muscular and extremely gladiator-like. Just how denim should be for men. Ready to handle anything. Argentinean denim label Fifty Five taps model Caspar Peteus to front its spring/summer [...]

The Best 5 Warrior Movie Characters for Men

The archetypes of men is a seriously valid, and sometimes sadly familiar topic. We say this initially with a peppering of lowliness, as on average man today is experiencing a major identity crisis due to the erosion of our societal structures, shifts in gender roles and the disappearance of strong role models. Archetypes have traditionally [...]

Into the Blue – Menswear Spring Edit September 2014.

How is the weather at the moment? Awesome! A little conversation. I use to work for a guy who each morning, would roll out the weather report and his experience at a 6am swim every morning to his staff. Sounds intriguing? Ahem, well 3 years on it’s predictable and boring. Alas, there were some terrific [...]

Finding Purpose – Part II

01. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So [...]

#Finding Purpose #1 – Stig of Style says…

Finding purpose is one of biggest challenges for us all. In today’s erratic world, distraction, pain, the chase of fame, achievement and judgement sway us from staying on the path. When we started MenStylePower almost 6 years ago, the journey has not always been easy. There were plenty of sleepless nights mixed with glowing success, [...]

Moschino Menswear 2014/5

Jeremy Scott. Man, you’ve done it again. Surprised us, made us cringe, made us look again and glorified the biggest small business in the world. I mean, who does that?! We’re bringing this collection to you because Gents, there’s always that outspoken and comical personality in us that wants a voice. Usually that’s when we’ve [...]

Zegna: Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It came as a surprise to hear Pilati insisting that his transformation of Zegna is happening in gentle increments, because on the evidence, he’s already come a long way in shifting the shape of the brand. Jackets are long, but they buttoned quite high, so the bottom flared a bit over full, slightly pegged pants. [...]
