Zegna: You’re NOT Wearing That Are You?

When you go to Italy, the very first word you should learn is Ermenegildo Zegna. Pronounce it like this, Er-Men-e-Gil-Do. Zen-ya. With an Italian mafia accent of course. Imagine you’re in a scene from The GodFather. Chest out. Curl the sides of your mouth down, pout. Now try it again. Bellissimo! Founded in 1910, the [...]

DENIM NATION – Fifty Five Jeans Project

This brand is just darn cool. It reminds us of the Nordic power crossing the English Channel. It reminds us of Conan the Barbarian. It’s masculine, off-putting, muscular and extremely gladiator-like. Just how denim should be for men. Ready to handle anything. Argentinean denim label Fifty Five taps model Caspar Peteus to front its spring/summer [...]

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 [...]
