Denzel Washington – A Man Set Apart

There’s only one style icon I know of whose charisma extends beyond clothes. He’s not trendy and street a la Depp. He doesn’t have the tailored leading man panache of Clooney, nor the staggering good looks of Pitt, yet there’s not one woman (and most men) I know of who doesn’t come running when his [...]

A Thirst for Beer

One man’s drop is … another man’s drop … (and unfortunately if over indulged in … another man’s poison!). Nonetheless, as Benjamin Franklin so astutely stated ‘“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy”. (It’s summer in Oz so please North Americans and Europeans, forgive our pontificating on how warm [...]

Who’s the boss? HUGO BOSS!

As if they didn’t already have enough of a monopoly on sleek and luxury vehicles, the Germans have definitely proved their attention to detail and methodology can filter into clothes, and not just any kind … the tailored, exceptionally well fitted world of suiting and corporate wear.

Pssst … The Glen Davis’ Secret Code of Excellence …

Sydney has a secret. One that it can’t keep bottled up much longer … For a few years now the one man’s name (and talent) has been bubbling under the surface of this cosmopolitan city, hiding amongst the theatrical wharfs of Woolloomooloo and the ‘gangsta glamour of the Cross and Darlo’ …  quietly gathering a [...]

Rewind … nah … REPLAY!

It’s not the big guns today like the House of Versace, LVMH, Prada nor Gucci, that are driving fashion trends forward, it’s the midsize brands who are blitzing the marketplace. Why? Because they’re street-wise, more nimble, leaner, meaner fighting machines which allows them to be more responsive to market needs. So while the big designer [...]

Billy Reid’s Timeless Southern Refinement

Lousiana’s two biggest events of 2010—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the Superbowl victory of the New Orleans Saints—were the starting points for Billy Reid’s Spring 2011 collection. “We were thinking a lot about southern Louisiana,” he said of his birthplace, “and it was while we were planning the collection that everything happened.” Reid, who [...]

A Magical Journey with Louis Vuitton

Journey – the physical act and course of travel from one place to another, in a romantic sense, embodies more than just moving from point A to point B. For Louis Vuitton who started out making suitcases that accompany men on their spiritual and physical metamorphosis, ‘journey’ is a hefty word laden with experience, meaning [...]

Rugger Buggers!

For a while now I’ve had my eye on what I find to be, the peculiar offshoot brand of Ralph Lauren ‘Rugby’. Why peculiar? Well … Ralph Lauren is quintessentially an American household name, born and bred in the land of the brave and the free. And rugby? Ah, that’s an entrenched British tradition, in [...]

Boot leggin’

Men’s boot design is, in 2010, a conflagration of sci fi inspired style – the improbable made possible – from the color palettes to the textures and materials. Ferragamo channels “X Men”, Versace takes a futuristic approach with “Matrix” stylin’, Dolce & Gabbana channels a rugged “Mad Max”, Alexander McQueen lapses back in time with [...]

How To: Taste Whisky, Write a Book in a Month, Hang a Flatscreen & Be an Expert at Anything

It’s Monday, November 1, 2010 and here at MSP HQ we’re feeling a little under the weather after a big weekend. Not a partying one though, rather … working. We’re aiming for the 2015 Forbes List. As a result of all this hard work and labour, we’re bushed. Too bushed to write up anything too [...]
