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 [...]

Chillax dude … be casual about your stylin’

You like kicking back, you don’t like fussin’ too much with your gear, you couldn’t care less if the world’s haute couture designers and their creations were banned from the face of the planet (except that all those gorgeous models would also disappear from the catwalks …), you pull on whatever looks good and is [...]

World Cup Soccer Style

The World Cup enthralls more people around the globe than any other event, sports or otherwise. Every four years, in pubs and corporate boardrooms, thatched huts and flophouses, fans of “the Beautiful Game” gather around televisions and transistor radios—and now, for the deep of pocket, iPhones and 3-D flat screens—to cheer for their heroes. They [...]

I’m a Pant’s Man – fit em’ well please!

There is soooo much out there on the www, that it’s a given you’re going to miss something. So the Stylemeisters beat their chests when they come across such a find. Bonobos is fashion ‘man-speak’ at its best, and if you know your world animals (and not just think you’re one in the bedroom) you’ll [...]
