Mind the GAP!

GAP is here! For years we have been starved of great value and great design, not to mention cool & heart felt charities powered by retailers due to red tape that has protected the turf of Australian fashion businesses. But now, with changes made, Melbourne will finally see GAP officially opening the doors to its [...]

Supreme Luggage

This British designed luggage is the very definition of hand-made luxury. I would know. For many years peeps said the grandest of luggage to travel with was Louis Vuitton, but I tell you fellas, Hackett London is giving the monogram that LV is, a run for its sterling. A modern day classic, the Globe-Trotter case [...]

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 name [...]

The Quintessential Englishman; Paul Smith

I must say I love Paul Smith. From the logo to the colours, to the designs of his ranges – he is the quintessential Englishman. The typography of his written name (which by the way is everywhere on his product), is involving and present. The ‘less is more’ feel to his casual wear suddenly is [...]

Flauntin’ the Chest Patch

There are certain choices in life no man should be deprived of, like which car to salivate over, what warrior stories to tell at the pub, who to vote for, and other stuff that doesn’t involve a ball. I was listening to some of my friend-girls talk about their men today and there was a [...]

Stig of Style Says…

Stig is tired. He’s in bed, day-dreaming of the dinner party he’s going to tomorrow night where the chef is an African Goddess! But Stig can’t sleep. (First person) So as I’ve been casually strolling through the billion or so pages on the internet I halted my wandering as I came across another ‘mens’ site’ [...]

Icarus Store

There’s a massive stirring in the city of Sydney. Pitt Street Mall is full of construction & noise, day in, day out. You would imagine this to be off-putting for the local Sydney-Sider but the opposite seems to be happening. Instead of foot traffic slowing and stores reporting decreased sales, we’re seeing the general public’s [...]

London Fashion Week shows Rooms Men

If it’s on the catwalks in Paris, and is being called a London design initiative, then we are absolutely convinced that in the near future the focus and importance in recognizing Men’s Fashion and Styling will be equal to that of the over-saturated female market. We recognised a gap in the market a year ago [...]

Given the massive focus on active sports wear due to the recent focus on the World Cup & Wimbledon – MSP is looking into semi-casual sportswear for blokes, which is proving itself to be more sophisticated than ever before. Active Sportswear also covers sports that aren’t so commercial such as fly-fishing, hunting, sailing, aviation and [...]

Belstaff: Legend. Icon. Craftmanship.

It’s not often one gets to witness an icon brand released into the rugged atmosphere of the far south so the MSP crew was faint with excitement when we heard that this authentic and unique international player was hitting our shores. Belstaff. The brand that clothed Ewan Macgregor on his 15.000 miles long ‘Long Way [...]

Stig of Style Says… the ‘M’ word

Just recently, I walked into my girlfriend’s house to find her seated around the open fire in the den with a couple of her gal pals, and they seemed to be whispering in breathy, quiet voices. Like four octaves lower than my own deep rumble. The girls obviously liked what they  were talking about. Me [...]

Stop the Sag! (breaking news)

NEW YORK: A state senator in New York has launched a campaign against a crack epidemic of the low-pants kind – telling young people: ”When you raise your pants, you raise how you feel about yourself.” Brooklyn residents awoke to the sight of two ”Stop the Sag” billboards showing two men in jeans low enough [...]
