Watches of Steel

Watches and cars are two of the most highly talked about topics between men. All the advertising and association to power, masculinity and getting the girl will show the sheer force of owning a magnificent time piece or vehicle. Hey, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Take Stig for example. He loves his Ducati. You [...]

The Deathly Lure of Porn

Porn. The secret vice of  … “men like me. Not all men, but men like all of us. Men who can’t get a date as well as men who have all the dates they could want. Men who live alone and men who are married. Men who grew up in liberal homes where pornography was [...]

First Impressions Count & Girls don’t want to Interview

The Story Thus Far: Summer was a great girl with luscious, long, black locks, a quick smile and a fun, bubbly personality. When Tom first saw her he was intrigued by her sharp mind, gentleness and genuine joy. He too wasn’t a bad specimen, with a kind heart, a shy smile, great guns, and quick [...]

Herringbone – A Genteel Australian Tradition

Inspite of the hard yakka image of the Australian male icon i.e. out at pasture, driving horses or shearing wild rams in rugged denimwear and torn shirts, the Australian male style sensibility has over the years embraced the finer, more tailored aspects of menswear. This is especially evident through in the very genteel designs of [...]

Oscar G doesn’t wear skinny jeans.

Oscar G doesn’t wear skinny jeans. Oscar G is a real man. When Oscar G (a friend of the StyleMeister) posted the following status on Facebook today “ I don’t wear skinny jeans’” he didn’t expect the mad rush of responses. In just an hour, the man had 45 comments of all them giving the [...]

How to become the Quintessential Gentleman

Here at MenStylePower, we’re finding that women are moaning more and more, and it’s not in ecstasy. They’re upset with the lack of consideration and respect in their relationships with men; from the office to the home. In turn, the men we speak to are frustrated by the lack of respect they get from women, [...]

Dunhill: A proper British tradition

Mad dogs and Englishmen might go out in the midday sun, but they only did so properly dressed – the Englishmen, that is. British style has always been quintessentially proper, minimalist, understated, impeccable and extremely functional. For the war cause, they gave us the pith helmet, for the white hunter came the long-sleeved safari jacket, [...]

GIs, Aviators, Hot Rods & Style

Summer in the Mojave Desert circa 1946: under a glaringly hot sun, armies of young, yet not-so-carefree GIs, survivors of the Great war, take to the highways in hot rods and mo’bikes, cruising through the American landscape en masse, trying to recreate the camaraderie and feeling of belonging they’d discovered during their time fighting together [...]

Into The Wild (with Sruli Recht)

This Easter, The Stylemeister is headed deep into the southern highlands of my state; into a wild, untamed landscape that’s been left to evolve and flow into lush, green hills and valleys, where wildlife is free, the landscape’s barely touched and where humans remain scarce. I’ll be setting up camp under the stars, hunting, clearing [...]

Men’s Thread Trends – April 2011

It’s only after I compiled this list of April’s hottest menswear trends, that I realised that there was a theme coming through – casual and relaxed – with a lean towards denim and blues to really pull through that chilled out look.

How to Win In A Financial Crisis

Bullsource.com says it well: “In late 2008, many learned that the mainstream media and most so-called “economists” failed to see a financial collapse coming, even months after entering a recession.” The result was a major hit to the US economy, which then ballooned to envelop the rest of the world. “Trillions was lost worldwide, as [...]
