The Holster Belt – Ride em’ UrbanBoy

I’ve always been fascinated by Cowboys & Indian characters. The saddle work, the elaborate head-dresses, the lifestyle, spirituality, the courage, wisdom and commitment.

Herringbone – A Genteel Australian Tradition

Inspite of the hard yakka image of the Australian male icon i.e. out at pasture, driving horses or shearing wild rams in rugged denimwear and torn shirts, the Australian male style sensibility has over the years embraced the finer, more tailored aspects of menswear.

Dunhill: A proper British tradition

Mad dogs and Englishmen might go out in the midday sun, but they only did so properly dressed – the Englishmen, that is. British style has always been quintessentially proper, minimalist, understated, impeccable and extremely functional. For the war cause, they gave us the pith helmet, for the white hunter came the long-sleeved safari jacket, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

GIs, Aviators, Hot Rods & Style

Summer in the Mojave Desert circa 1946: under a glaringly hot sun, armies of young, yet not-so-carefree GIs, survivors of the Great war, take to the highways in hot rods and mo’bikes, cruising through the American landscape en masse, trying to recreate the camaraderie and feeling of belonging they’d discovered during their time fighting together [...]
