The Holster Belt – Ride em’ UrbanBoy

I’ve always been fascinated by Cowboys & Indian characters. The saddle work, the elaborate head-dresses, the lifestyle, spirituality, the courage, wisdom and commitment. These, as you can image are all the romantic elements of the Cowboys & Indians era. Of course there was a very bloody side to it as well, which is devastating. But [...]

MSP Thread Trend Alert – November 2012

Spring in the south, and Autumn in the north. But with global warming, I’m afraid that the seasons are somewhat out of whack. Regardless, I am assuming that most people enjoy Spring more – so bring on the budding blooms and the smell of sea salt in the air! Ducati’s, convertibles and pushbikes. Classy accessories, [...]

Movember – Get your Moustache on!

TEN years ago two blokes enjoying a beer in a Melbourne pub, joked about bringing back a cultural icon of the 70s – the moustache. Yeah you know what it is. You’ve probably even tried to grow one and couldn’t stand the time it took to do so – so gave in, whipped out the [...]

The name is Bond, James Bond

A cold, quiet day circa June 1985. I’m bored to death by the inertia of winter. There’s nothing to do so I creep into my older cousin Peter’s room to have a root around. Under his bed is a stack of magazines and a few books. One of them catches my attention. It’s vividly blue [...]

Living in ‘THE ZONE’

Samurai warriors were without a doubt some of the fiercest fighters who ever existed. The key to the samurai’s incredible fighting ability was the complete elimination of their fear of death and their complete focus on being in the present moment. They did this by entirely de-energizing their fear of death. If a person in [...]

Men’s Style at the Emmy’s 2012

Ah, the 2012 Emmy Awards: the triumphant wins and the harrowing losses. The beautiful women borrowing expensive jewelry and wearing revealing dresses. The speeches thanking people you’ve never heard of before. And, then, of course, the men wearing fantastic tailoring. This year, Jon Hamm looked as excellent as ever in his tuxedo. And maybe the [...]

KENZO Spring 2013, Into The Jungle

The term jungle is hand in hand with the term Kenzo. The original Kenzo Jungle Jap store, opened in Paris in 1970, is a brand touchstone. Going back into the wild—Leon and his partner, Carol Lim, recently made a trek into the jungles of Thailand — which was their way of bringing the brand back to itself. Now [...]

Finally, we are seeing the crooks in the investment banking and retail banking institutes pay for their misguiding and abusive ways that tear hard earned money from the hands of everyday people. Let’s [...]
