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 […]

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, […]

Young, Rich and Handsome; A 27 year old’s Fashion Sense

PARIS — Jocks like Victor Cruz may not seem like the obvious target market for high-end fashion designers. Yet the wide receiver, who last year signed an estimated $46 million contract extension with the Giants, is a banner example of where exactly we find ourselves in the ongoing evolution of men’s wear. Mr. Cruz loves […]

2014 TREND: Taking WHITE Seriously in Menswear

White Noise Saying white will be trendy is a bit of a misnomer because in fashion, white is as classic as it gets. 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 […]

From Brawlers to Barristers; Joe Black Menswear

The thing we dig about Joe Black, is this Macky Clan sailed form Scotland before New Zealand had electricity or proper sewers! Much like our beloved StigofStyle, we’ve got a chap here who had a definite purpose in life, and used his talents well. In a frontier settlement both raw and refined, Joe tailored a […]

Don’t EVER wash your Jeans: Levi Strauss

Yesterday marked the 141st birthday of Levi’s 501 jeans. A pretty amazing achievement in the ever-changing platform of retail. And if you’re the vintage of Stylemeister and myself, then you would have definitely owned a pair of 501’s. The perfect cut, the right weight of denim, they aged like an expensive bottle of Penfold’s Grange […]

Ditto 3D Tech: Changing the Face of Eyewear for Men

The perfect face shape is constantly on one’s mind when choosing the right pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. Especially if you’re a long sighted person who needs glasses to see close up. You need to take them off right, to put on the frames to see if they suit you. Yet, as the frames are […]

Aoud Jewelry for Men from Italy

Here at Menstylepower, we’ve found that color is a scary concept for Gents who are just starting out reworking their personal style. Color to them represents a sense of femininity, which they want to avoid at all costs, so they tend to stay in the hues of blues, greys and blacks. Maybe a little latte […]

Marc Jacobs’ Resort for Men 2014 – YES PLEASE!

DAMN RIGHT. We’re really enjoying the written word on the sweaters, which of course was started in the 70’s exposing political dislike among the public. Today, it’s just a given that some of the most powerful designers are going to keep some core items in their collections, saying ‘sumthin sumthin;’ AKA MAXWELL! (Big shout out). […]

The Dirty Gucci Man…Comes Clean

The notoriously Dirty Gucci Man, (not to be confused with Dirty Gucci Mane; rapper) is a term used for that elegantly dress man with a five o’clock shadow and that JBF hairstyle, who quite frankly darlin’… couldn’t give a damn. The girls love him, the gents want to be him, and he’s been around for […]

The Gentleman is the New Bad Boy

The more women MenStylePower talk to, the more we realize that the Gentleman is a rare breed. We here at MSP cater for the army of marginalised Gents who aren’t metro, or retro yet they’re somewhere in the middle. But what we do know, is our readers are gentlemen. We’ve been saying for a long […]

That Effortless Cool in Men’s Styling

You don’t need to be born in Europe to have effortless ‘Style’. Many dudes we’ve knocked into have this je ne sais quoi – which in French means, ‘I don’t know what’. And as we’d say in the USA, ‘I don’t know what it is, but…’ – It’s a state of mind, an attitude. It […]
