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 [...]

Now he’s starred in a video taken at Britain’s Silverstone race track where he is shown driving the latest Range Rover Sport and F-Type [...]

#ShanghaiTang Menswear 2014 Collection

2014 is the Year of the Horse. I am sure for you, as it is for us here at Menstylepower that conjures up a lot of images. The Knight in shining armour, the cowboy, the man from snowy river and of course…hi-ho silver. For me personally, it is a cultural mystical image. The Horse, as [...]

#TomFord 2014 Menswear Collection

Fashion is fast and furious. Style is everlasting. So how does one balance what is appealing to him in fashion and what is going to fade away next season? Firstly, we would say the integrity of the designer. Quality, quality and more quality. Classic styles and use of fabrics and technology. (Ahem, and also keeping [...]

Menswear at the #BAFTA Film Awards

One of the most important transactions for a designer is to see his/her creations translate into the every day Gentleman’s world. This is effectively done by enticing celebrities and stars into an Ambassadorship with the Designer. Here at the BAFTA film awards, it is, in its own way, a Global Runway for Designers and a [...]

Scent of a Wild Man: Best Colognes for Men

She leans in for a kiss. Suddenly she rears her head back, her nostrils flare and her eyes are filled with delicious incredulity. She sighs and takes in a deep breath before opening her sweet mouth to huskily ask … ‘WHAT are you wearing!?!” She’s not talking about your BOSS leather jacket nor your G-Star [...]
