Dsquared2 Spring 2013 Menswear

Lately in the fashion world, we are seeing collections become more artistic than ever. Why is this? Perhaps the fierce competition, the need to express creatively, the determination to be noticed, seen, adored? But what we don’t want to see, as men, is designers creating collections that lose the archetypical masculinity that is the life [...]

Mad For Dad!

Yip. It’s Father’s Day in the Northern Hemisphere on Sunday and we are all celebrating. Many dudes will just call their Dad’s as it’s been stated to be the busiest day of the year in the USA for ‘collect calls’. True dat! But most of us will go straight into searching for a sporting, electronic or hardware [...]

The Artistic Barneys New York

With the retail world struggling under the tentacles of Europe’s financial desperation, it takes real guts and creativity to adapt a new theme into the world of fashion. At a time of year when most New York stores entice passersby with promises of deep discounts, Barneys is eschewing ‘sale’ signs in favour of resin chairs in a concrete [...]

The Elegant Pocket-Square; Mark of the Gentleman

Today we have many a man tie-less – only wearing jackets. Now, in the world of suiting, this is definitely perceived as being a little under-dressed. Do we care? Yes and No. There are a few accessories that men have the ability to go ape with, and one of them is the trusty pocket-square. A [...]

Men in Black (How to wear it, and keep it looking fly!)

  Nothing looks as elegant and as chic as black clothing. It covers a multitude of sins, makes you look slimmer, works with almost every complexion and matches almost everything. Black clothes are the basis of many a self respecting dude’s wardrobe – from Kanye to Bond, Obama to Pitt, and even the regular Joe [...]

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

Sydney is pumped with A.N.T.I.C.I.P.A.T.I.O.N, as it bumps into several locations for its bi-annual Fashion Week sponsored by Mercedes Benz. (Hmmm, gimme one of those – preferably the SL55 all sport supercharged V8 engines producing an impressive 493 horsepower). Alas, the Divas, the Preeee-Madonnas and the devoted followers of this World called Fashion will be [...]

Men’s Fashion Colours 2012

I thought I would follow up on the last article – DSquared2 – and let you fellas in on what the meaning of colors is all about. Our primal instincts are so important when it comes to selecting colors. Colors are visual and a lot is said when, well, you don’t say anything at all. [...]

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 [...]

Dress for the Opposite Sex

  Do you ever wonder when you’re looking through your wardrobe if what you wear, turns your lady friend on? It’s no secret that women generally dress for the opposite sex. Quite obviously though, the majority of ladies dress sense has gone from the Chanel style in the 50′s where skirt lengths were elegant and [...]

The Superman: Masterchef, Stylish, Athletic & anything but Metro

There was a period, around the time of Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, when, surprisingly, women swooned for big bearded brutish men, like Russell Crowe.   Crowe had “it”, – but then he started throwing mobile phones at people and generally acting a little ape like.  More recently, women were more inclined to dream wistfully of impeccably groomed and [...]

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 [...]
