Billy Reid’s Timeless Southern Refinement

Lousiana’s two biggest events of 2010—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the Superbowl victory of the New Orleans Saints—were the starting points for Billy Reid’s Spring 2011 collection. “We were thinking a lot about southern Louisiana,” he said of his birthplace, “and it was while we were planning the collection that everything happened.” Reid, who [...]

Timber - doing what he does best.

Social Networking…Bringing Sexy Back.

Timber!!!!!! Calling it out across the land. This lumber-jack of Style is the signature card for all 30 year olds who want to oscillate between carefree check shirts matched back with the latest denim, to the lean mean gun-metal suit, loose enough to bust some ‘Fred Astaire ease’ moves on the dance floor without splitting [...]

Rugger Buggers!

For a while now I’ve had my eye on what I find to be, the peculiar offshoot brand of Ralph Lauren ‘Rugby’. Why peculiar? Well … Ralph Lauren is quintessentially an American household name, born and bred in the land of the brave and the free. And rugby? Ah, that’s an entrenched British tradition, in [...]

ZARA – fashion invader extraordinaire.

Zara is synonymous with exciting, edgy, hi street design, eco fabrics like organic cotton and trends that move so fast they leave consumers reeling (but secretly happy they have that one-off season Zara garment). This aggressive Spanish retailer has taken over the world of hi street fashion, becoming the rage all over Europe and then [...]

Hi-Street Cool avec Urban Behavior

In 1989, a dude called Arif Noor opened the first Urban Behavior store in Toronto with one simple goal: to design, produce and sell high-quality and cutting-edge fashion. Has the man accomplished his mission? With 45 stores across Canada, 18 in the United States, and 12 in the Middle East, I’d say so. Priding itself [...]

The top 2 rules for men’s style on a budget

RULE NO 1: Inspite of the GFC, spend good money on jackets, belts & shoes. Jackets: Own at least one awesome jacket for each season – a light one for summer and heavy wool or gaberdine jacket or trench coat for winter. If you don’t have much money then probably the one item to make [...]

Outed: Diesel’s Street Closet

Oh real, oh gee? Go Diesel. We love your urban street mirror with touch screen tech & a webcam where passersby, street urchins and the local ne’er can do “choose” clothes (from a selection of digital pics, we s’pose) and try them on the screen through Augmented Reality. If anything is should be educational (what [...]

Mind the GAP!

GAP is here! For years we have been starved of great value and great design, not to mention cool & heart felt charities powered by retailers due to red tape that has protected the turf of Australian fashion businesses. But now, with changes made, Melbourne will finally see GAP officially opening the doors to its [...]

The Tie: Still hanging around.

The tie has been hanging around for many centuries. It all began when Croat soldiers from the Military in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian words for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name [...]

The Quintessential Englishman; Paul Smith

I must say I love Paul Smith. From the logo to the colours, to the designs of his ranges – he is the quintessential Englishman. The typography of his written name (which by the way is everywhere on his product), is involving and present. The ‘less is more’ feel to his casual wear suddenly is [...]

Flauntin’ the Chest Patch

There are certain choices in life no man should be deprived of, like which car to salivate over, what warrior stories to tell at the pub, who to vote for, and other stuff that doesn’t involve a ball. I was listening to some of my friend-girls talk about their men today and there was a [...]

Icarus Store

There’s a massive stirring in the city of Sydney. Pitt Street Mall is full of construction & noise, day in, day out. You would imagine this to be off-putting for the local Sydney-Sider but the opposite seems to be happening. Instead of foot traffic slowing and stores reporting decreased sales, we’re seeing the general public’s [...]
