Salvatore Ferragamo or Zegna….dig! [...]

Don’t EVER wash your Jeans: Levi Strauss

Yesterday marked the 141st birthday of Levi’s 501 jeans. A pretty amazing achievement in the ever-changing platform of retail. And if you’re the vintage of Stylemeister and myself, then you would have definitely owned a pair of 501′s. The perfect cut, the right weight of denim, they aged like an expensive bottle of Penfold’s Grange [...]

Ditto 3D Tech: Changing the Face of Eyewear for Men

The perfect face shape is constantly on one’s mind when choosing the right pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. Especially if you’re a long sighted person who needs glasses to see close up. You need to take them off right, to put on the frames to see if they suit you. Yet, as the frames are [...]

Aoud Jewelry for Men from Italy

Here at Menstylepower, we’ve found that color is a scary concept for Gents who are just starting out reworking their personal style. Color to them represents a sense of femininity, which they want to avoid at all costs, so they tend to stay in the hues of blues, greys and blacks. Maybe a little latte [...]

Marc Jacobs’ Resort for Men 2014 – YES PLEASE!

DAMN RIGHT. We’re really enjoying the written word on the sweaters, which of course was started in the 70′s exposing political dislike among the public. Today, it’s just a given that some of the most powerful designers are going to keep some core items in their collections, saying ‘sumthin sumthin;’ AKA MAXWELL! (Big shout out). [...]

EkoCycle Menswear by will.i.am

  Now if will.i.am isn’t a style icon, then I’m not a Ducati riding dude. And you all know I am. I have no idea why we didn’t come across this exception, innovative, sustainable, forward thinking brand earlier, because if we had, we’d have ordered our allotment of shirts earlier. Awesome! To date, 1.5 Million [...]

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 [...]

The Company Behind Jay-Z’s Leather Jacket: Schott

The company behind the leather jacket sported by rock icons from James Dean to Bruce Springsteen all started out of a basement in New York City in 1913. A century ago, Irving and Jack Schott began selling raincoats made on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Today, Schott N.Y.C. has grown into a globally recognized outerwear brand [...]

The Dirty Gucci Man…Comes Clean

The notoriously Dirty Gucci Man, (not to be confused with Dirty Gucci Mane; rapper) is a term used for that elegantly dress man with a five o’clock shadow and that JBF hairstyle, who quite frankly darlin’… couldn’t give a damn. The girls love him, the gents want to be him, and he’s been around for [...]

Father Bob sings for a Million Campaign #songs4bob

Many of you may not of heard of Father Bob. By complete mistake, he became a media-personality Catholic Priest, adored by Australians because of his no bollocks approach to faith and people. Father Bob (Maguire) has launched a crowd-funding campaign via Pozible to help raise funds over Easter to feed the homeless with ‘Father Bob [...]

Jay-Z Dripping in GOLD

Cologne is SUPER important to men. From that first meet, your boss, your lover or your mates will see your ‘perfected look’, and nostalgically recognise your fragrance. Call it primal, but if you look good and smell like a can of fly spray, then you’ve completely sent the wrong message. And they will remember it. [...]

The Gentleman is the New Bad Boy

The more women MenStylePower talk to, the more we realize that the Gentleman is a rare breed. We here at MSP cater for the army of marginalised Gents who aren’t metro, or retro yet they’re somewhere in the middle. But what we do know, is our readers are gentlemen. We’ve been saying for a long [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Bluebeards Revenge – Winner Best Grooming Product

Men’s grooming products are high on the agenda as Gents start to realise….they actually work! A couple of years ago, men’s grooming products were growing at a record rate. Not only were they growing in terms of the number of male-specific products introduced, but men were also increasingly choosing and buying their own personal care [...]
