The top 2 rules for men’s style on a budget

RULE NO 1: Inspite of the GFC, spend good money on jackets, belts & shoes. Jackets: Own at least one awesome jacket for each season – a light one for summer and heavy wool or gaberdine jacket or trench coat for winter. If you don’t have much money then probably the one item to make [...]

Outed: Diesel’s Street Closet

Oh real, oh gee? Go Diesel. We love your urban street mirror with touch screen tech & a webcam where passersby, street urchins and the local ne’er can do “choose” clothes (from a selection of digital pics, we s’pose) and try them on the screen through Augmented Reality. If anything is should be educational (what [...]

Watch this space!

What is it about the watch? The time piece, the arm jewelry? Is it the weight that locks around your wrist? The ability to snap your wrist out to view the time when a lady asks politely for it? Is it a statement to other men in the office that your selection of watch represents [...]

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda … Volta Shoes

It’s only once in a fashion fad lifetime that a new brand ‘sneaks’ out infront of the pack and captures the imagination of the style set. In 2010, a brand with uber appeal has emerged from the mysterious self described multidisciplinary Italian design community of TwentyFourSeven. It’s a shoe concept like no other. And it’s [...]

Supreme Luggage

This British designed luggage is the very definition of hand-made luxury. I would know. For many years peeps said the grandest of luggage to travel with was Louis Vuitton, but I tell you fellas, Hackett London is giving the monogram that LV is, a run for its sterling. A modern day classic, the Globe-Trotter case [...]

The Tie: Still hanging around.

The tie has been hanging around for many centuries. It all began when Croat soldiers from the Military in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian words for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name [...]

The Quintessential Englishman; Paul Smith

I must say I love Paul Smith. From the logo to the colours, to the designs of his ranges – he is the quintessential Englishman. The typography of his written name (which by the way is everywhere on his product), is involving and present. The ‘less is more’ feel to his casual wear suddenly is [...]

Kickin’ it with Gucci!

This a quick one – we love the new Gucci Men’s 2010 sneaks and slip-on range. Each piece of exquisite leather footwear is a creation with some serious ‘tude! … and we’re all for encouraging our MSP fans to shine in them. There’s something about the range’s neutral colours and clean lines that just scream [...]

Gaspard Yurkievich who?

Gents watch out for the Fall Winter 10/11 Paris men’s fashion collection from Gaspard Yurkievich Homme. Masculine suiting with just a little peppering of true artistic designer-wear, where the shapes are curved like the bonnet of a Ferrari. We are loving the journey from traditional suits, to new artistic shapes to the shop floor for [...]

The Westwood Homeless

Right so this must be the new way designers are showing off their ranges, because if you put all this stuff together for your daily outfit, you’d be looked upon as some homeless duff. Right? So, in viewing these pictures, you can see that the consumer would more than likely say, “Ok, I love the [...]

Brace Yourself!

Nothing is amusing or frivolous when it comes to Style. Fashion on the other hand, being a very different concept, allows the ‘fashionistas’ to frolic and dance through materials, designs, carrot top jeans, fluros and more (while I’m somewhat snickering on my sleeve over being told by a trend setter that carrot top jeans were [...]
