10 Must Have Man-Bags to Last a Lifetime

Us men shop differently to women. We all know that. We’re into investment pieces matching them back with our kick-abouts. We’re happy with good underwear, our favourite jeans, and t-shirts, but invest heavily into shoes, watches and bags. Alongside of this now is luxury writing instruments and whiskey!

A. Sauvage – African Art for the Suit and Tie

It’s always been a pondering artistic question regarding menswear as to the amount of interchangeable garments available with a gents suit.

The Melbourne Watch Company

In the words of Coco Chanel, Luxury is meant to be comfortable. She is of course, talking about the fit of the garments you buy for thousands of dollars. What if the comfort level was not only on the fit of a luxury item, but also on the wallet as well? Wouldn’t that be a […]

Young, Rich and Handsome; A 27 year old’s Fashion Sense

PARIS — Jocks like Victor Cruz may not seem like the obvious target market for high-end fashion designers.

GABRIELE PASINI’S OPTICAL FLOWER

The mood of the forthcoming GABRIELE PASINI SS15 collection is bodied forth in black and white, expressed through a myriad of different prints, geometries and nuances in both the outerwear and the knitwear.
