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.

Framing your MANscape

A mate said to me once in 1993, “I’ve just bought a pair of $500 Versace sunglasses. Is that too much?” And at the time I thought, “hell yes” but then I saw him wear them last week and they still looked brilliant. So would you say paying the price for quality and design pays [...]

Men’s Street Style: New York, April 2013

  Today, Street Styling has become just as important as what is shown on the runways.

Tim Coppens: NY Fashion Week

Coppens’ star is unquestionably on the rise. Since launching on the New York runways three seasons ago, he’s been scooped up by Barneys, Isetan, and Dover Street Market.

Stubble Trouble? Shave Smartly with RazWar.

In fact, while the grungy, unkempt look has its own adherents, clean-cut and savvy is still society’s favorite look. So, party season’s here again and Movember [...]

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.

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.
