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 [...]

Four Stylist Players of The 2014 NFL Season

The FIFA World Cup spoiled us in the skill and drama department and its ending has left a massive void in our lives and on our screens. Thankfully the NFL kicked off this week, offering a new batch of sportsmen to get pumped over.  Blokes all over the continent and their kids will be elated, deflated, [...]

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. [...]

Robin Williams: Depression, The Secret Assassin

We see a lot of stars with substance-abuse issues. Why? I think celebrity itself is a drug. There’s withdrawal, because it comes in waves. You’ll be hot, and then you’re not, and then back again. Even now, with an Academy Award, it’s still, “Mork!” Billy Crystal says stand-up is how you process the painful. Do [...]

Top 10 Executive Headphones 2014

  Headphone technology pretty much rocks across the board these days. Look beyond the basic buds and you move into a realm of enhanced dual drivers, individual tweeters, noise-cancellation, indestructible cables and custom molded fitting systems. It all comes at a price. A decent pair of “fashion headsets” these days can easily go for more [...]

Are You Sartorially Challenged?

We men have garnered the reputation of being careless clothes-hangers, perhaps deservedly so. Except for our homosexual brethren, who reputedly wear slacks that actually match their shirts and shoes, men seem to dress by a method best described as “grab the first three least-smelly objects from the wardrobe.” “Wardrobe” is of course a variable term [...]

A Jealous Woman Can Do Better Research than the FBI! Men can always spot a fellow dude who is trouble. The Player, The Loser, The Mental Case, The Dumpster and The Wanker. But can they spot the women who are trouble? Yup, guys can be fooled, too, and miss the signs of danger. However, as [...]
