Men’s Street Style – May 2012

Gents, can you believe that it’s May already? How fast have we blitzed thru 2012? My head’s reeling at the crazy pace of life. It’s all good though, MenStylePower has grown in leaps and bounds and we’re looking forward to the next six months where we’ll be announcing some kick*** news about the next phase [...]

Prada Menswear SS 2012 – Sportingly Superb!

Prada has always been a luxury label that I have enjoyed watching expand on its empire ever so cautiously. With the husband and wife team behind the helium tank, this incredible company has always peppered its cutting edge tailoring with modern essence to give its loyal followers exceptional collections year upon year. Almost 100 years [...]

D.L & CO – Let There Be Light

MSP have always suggested that style is individual, and it is to permeate through all parts of your life. Don’t just think it’s to do with the shirt on your back. Style is the way you tilt your head, or which pen you pull out of your pocket, or how you decline back into your [...]

The Colourful Duo – DSquared2

Colour can be a dangerous thing. I like to compare it to your mood. Of course, when you’re feeling gleeful, or pumped, or psyched – you’re going to ‘up’ your colours in your wardrobe. On go those sunburnt orange Nikes, or the Nixon watch that has the colourful face. Yet, if you’re feeling flat, then [...]

M.J. Bale: Sushi, Sake & Samurai Suiting

Buying a suit can make you panic at the best of times. The price, the cut, the right fit, the hanging of one’s thousand dollar suit in your own wardrobe. Some of this requires basic common sense, and some; damn good advice from an expert in the trade. MenStylePower had the privilege of downing some [...]

The New Subculture: SteamPunk

We all want to find those style items that say something significant about us. The MSP crew tend to buy items that have a connection with the individual; be it a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry or a watch. Something inside of us says “YES! That’s me”, and alas, the wallet opens with [...]

Father’s Day Gifts: MSP EDIT

Oh yes. That happy day when all the women in your family give you boxer shorts. And the young men, give you grief. Father’s Day; when you wonder if you’ve done a good job, and maybe even pat yourself on the back because you know you have. And it’s the day when you wish someone [...]

Audi, Henri Lloyd and Yacht Racing

Now if you’re anything like me, you’d like to keep your feet on dry land. Where there are some who enjoy a good ol’ dip in the salty masses; but for me, I signed a contract with the sharks a long time ago. I stay out of their waters, and they stay out of my [...]

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 [...]

To Sock, or not to Sock.

In my hunt for the perfect shoe, I came across this article written by Chas Underwood the Third, and thought it hilarious. It’s not often that you’ll see us write something like this, but Chas has done an interesting job and it’s on a subject where there is a mighty debate about the MSP office. [...]

Men Are Useless; really?

The one thing that I really dig about the British is that they are clever. Okay they’re arrogant at times, and forget to wear their sunscreen when they hit the beaches in the ‘no-o-zone’ southern hemisphere and end up looking like lobsters, but one thing is for sure – they can definitely use their brains. [...]

Zara’s opening shadows Burberry

Indeed it is true. The anticipation of the Spanish retail giant’s opening, shadowed Burberry’s flagship store launch last week. Almost a decade ago you just couldn’t write about it. A mid-market player pulling focus from a luxury brand that’s been established for over 150 years and highly respected throughout the world, lost in translation as [...]

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. When we could all easily let the daily struggle to survive get to [...]

Nautica Men’s Fall 2011 Collection: Official Fashion Looks by MenStylePower

In early February this year, we got an email from Nautica asking us to get involved, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2011, to identify some of our favorite pieces from their latest Men’s Fall 2011 Collection. Gents, we simply couldn’t say no! I mean, we dig Nautica so to turn our backs on this great [...]

Men’s Thread Trends – March 2011

In March 2011, style is all about the delineation between Mr Nice Guy and Mr Bad Boy. Why do we say that? Well, style trends today are neither one or the other; a dude can now walk out of his pad on Monday in a dark hoodie and torn jeans – reminiscent of the street [...]
