G_Cant say I love you
30 JULY 2011

Can’t say ‘I love you’?…Read on.

As I sit here listening to Dave Matthews Band, I reminisce on the stories of first love that I’ve heard over the years. During my travels, I tend to eavesdrop. And no, I’m no perve, but I love listening in on people’s conversations and sensing where they’re at, or where they’re not at. Nothing saddens [...]

Top Hunter | Protector Movie Characters for Men

The Hunter and Protector archetype is wonderfully characterized in the following films. Whether it be a father extending himself against incredible odds, or protecting his family against the dangers surrounding them in an often brutal world. The one common theme here is men loving and treasuring something outside themselves ~ regardless of the cost. Of [...]

Paris Fashion Week says ‘Loosen up man’!

Time and time again while covering the men’s components of Milan and Paris fashion weeks we touched on it: that dominant, relaxed aesthetic that men who are tired of the crotch hugging, thigh squishing feel of the overt skinny cut have to look forwards to amongst autumn / fall 2011 fashions. And beyond. Men’s fashion [...]

Italy’s MSGM Milan Fashion Week Edition

The history of MSGM begins with the following imperative: never look back. The future is here, ahead of us. Fashion, as a consequence, is today. Maybe tomorrow. Surely not yesterday. Fashion has to be found between the invisible lines of the Internet, in the looks of the new generations on Facebook, in the thousands of [...]

To Sock, or not to Sock.

In my hunt for the perfect shoe, I came across this article written by Chas Underwood the Third, and thought it hilarious. It’s not often that you’ll see us write something like this, but Chas has done an interesting job and it’s on a subject where there is a mighty debate about the MSP office. [...]

Men Are Useless; really?

The one thing that I really dig about the British is that they are clever. Okay they’re arrogant at times, and forget to wear their sunscreen when they hit the beaches in the ‘no-o-zone’ southern hemisphere and end up looking like lobsters, but one thing is for sure – they can definitely use their brains.

The girls go ga-ga,the guys start planning their next purchase and Stig and Style get busy writing articles. Men’s fashion is at the forefront as Arthur Galan AG continues to [...]

Saint Augustine Academy

I have to say that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of my cousins favourite movies. Why? Heck I don’t know. But I do know that it’s influenced many a hippy males dress sense. I had a teacher in high school once who loved his hawaiian hibiscus short sleeved shirts, and all the [...]

Zaharoff: Sophisticated Suiting

When it comes to men’s suiting many of us shy away from any or all decisions around the purchase apart from whether it needs to be a three piece, a two piece and needs a friendly price tag. But, if you appreciate your suit like you do a European sports car, then you would add [...]

Zara’s opening shadows Burberry

Indeed it is true. The anticipation of the Spanish retail giant’s opening, shadowed Burberry’s flagship store launch last week. Almost a decade ago you just couldn’t write about it. A mid-market player pulling focus from a luxury brand that’s been established for over 150 years and highly respected throughout the world, lost in translation as [...]

Would you approach this woman in a bar?

Of course you would! She’s perfectly featured, elegant, seductive and attractive. But would you ever forgive yourself if you knew it was actually a man dressed as a woman. We are seeing a new trend emerging which was taken as a delightful and intriguing gimmick on the Milan and Paris runways, yet is now having [...]

The MenStylePower Romantic Lead of the Year.

It is not for nothing that women often swoon at the mere mention of this man. When the strapping actor walks into the room he is  a picture of elegance. He has height, he is bright and radiates some sort of silent welcome when you meet him. In addition to his extraordinary list of movies, [...]

I Am Alex Petty(4)

When you say his name it sounds like a French delicacy. When you see his face, you want to rough it up because it’s a bit too pretty. Yet, what is it about this British actor/model that makes you know, categorically, that he’s the next hot thing to watch? Last month, I was asked along [...]
