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.

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 [...]

Are You Sartorially Challenged?

We men have garnered the reputation of being careless clothes-hangers, perhaps deservedly so. Except for our homosexual brethren, who reputedly wear slacks that actually match their shirts and shoes, men seem to dress by a method best described as “grab the first three least-smelly objects from the wardrobe.” “Wardrobe” is of course a variable term [...]

John Hardy: The Conscious Jeweller

In a world where corporate companies focus on staying in control and practice self-preservation beyond the cares of the customer, it’s always refreshing to stumble across businesses, no matter how big or small, who are defiant in their consistency of transparency, sustainability and the concerns of the collective consciousness.

But when it turns up repeatedly, in almost every collection in the form of coats, shirts, pants, suits and shoes, you know it is time to take white seriously. White is incredibly [...]
