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 [...]

Best Hair Styles for Men 2011 – MSP EDIT

Oh, the vanity in us all. Coming for a family that was primarily dominated by some fire sign (i.e. Leo, Aries or Sag), being in the spotlight was a pre-requisite for the males in my inner circle. Plus, I hang out with Stylemeister, who I might say, has an elegant way of being seen. Immaculately [...]

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.

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 [...]

New Kids on the Block: Design Label WT02

Don’t you love brand spanking new blood and talent? I was checkin’ out Bruno Mars, B.o.B and Janelle Monae (Grammy Awards broadcast) and thinking how refreshing it to see young guys bring pure fun and fantastic talent to the mix; after all aren’t we’re tired of the dirty crumpin’, the Gaga gags and Rihanna’s way-too-much-skin [...]

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 [...]
