Sons and their Fathers, Fathers and their Sons

A young man writes a letter to his dying father. A father who raised him alone after his wife left him. A man stricken with mild autism, lost in his obsessive hobby of coin collecting, so much so, his son felt his only parent had not been much of a father figure. A son filled [...]

10 Must Have Man-Bags to Last a Lifetime

Us men shop differently to women. We all know that. We’re into investment pieces matching them back with our kick-abouts. We’re happy with good underwear, our favourite jeans, and t-shirts, but invest heavily into shoes, watches and bags. Alongside of this now is luxury writing instruments and whiskey! Yep, as Euromonitors predict. With the change [...]

Into the Blue – Menswear Spring Edit September 2014.

How is the weather at the moment? Awesome! A little conversation. I use to work for a guy who each morning, would roll out the weather report and his experience at a 6am swim every morning to his staff. Sounds intriguing? Ahem, well 3 years on it’s predictable and boring. Alas, there were some terrific [...]

Finding Purpose – Part II

01. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So [...]

#Finding Purpose #1 – Stig of Style says…

Finding purpose is one of biggest challenges for us all. In today’s erratic world, distraction, pain, the chase of fame, achievement and judgement sway us from staying on the path. When we started MenStylePower almost 6 years ago, the journey has not always been easy. There were plenty of sleepless nights mixed with glowing success, [...]

Moschino Menswear 2014/5

Jeremy Scott. Man, you’ve done it again. Surprised us, made us cringe, made us look again and glorified the biggest small business in the world. I mean, who does that?! We’re bringing this collection to you because Gents, there’s always that outspoken and comical personality in us that wants a voice. Usually that’s when we’ve [...]

Zegna: Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It came as a surprise to hear Pilati insisting that his transformation of Zegna is happening in gentle increments, because on the evidence, he’s already come a long way in shifting the shape of the brand. Jackets are long, but they buttoned quite high, so the bottom flared a bit over full, slightly pegged pants. [...]

A. Sauvage – African Art for the Suit and Tie

It’s always been a pondering artistic question regarding menswear as to the amount of interchangeable garments available with a gents suit. The number of designers who want to rescue the suit and present it as not-just-a-dressy-thing for today’s man keeps on growing. It is, of course, a testament to how important this menswear staple is, [...]

Robin Williams: Depression, The Secret Assassin

We see a lot of stars with substance-abuse issues. Why? I think celebrity itself is a drug. There’s withdrawal, because it comes in waves. You’ll be hot, and then you’re not, and then back again. Even now, with an Academy Award, it’s still, “Mork!” Billy Crystal says stand-up is how you process the painful. Do [...]

The Valentino Man

It seems ironical that the designers of Valentino, who pride themselves on some of the world’s most sought after suiting for men, have also designed what the world fashion market suggests is the most sought-after sneaker. It’s ironic, yet not surprising as we see the luxury high-end treating the mid-market as a vessel for uber-artistic [...]

Is Activewear the New Denim?

  Much like denim before it, activewear is increasingly being integrated into daily attire. So does activewear offer fashion brands the same kind of growth potential that designer denim did a decade ago? We think so. And does activewear look like it’s heading to become a ‘staple’ in men’s wardrobes? We think so too. Gap, [...]

Top 10 Executive Headphones 2014

  Headphone technology pretty much rocks across the board these days. Look beyond the basic buds and you move into a realm of enhanced dual drivers, individual tweeters, noise-cancellation, indestructible cables and custom molded fitting systems. It all comes at a price. A decent pair of “fashion headsets” these days can easily go for more [...]

The Melbourne Watch Company

In the words of Coco Chanel, Luxury is meant to be comfortable. She is of course, talking about the fit of the garments you buy for thousands of dollars. What if the comfort level was not only on the fit of a luxury item, but also on the wallet as well? Wouldn’t that be a [...]
