#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 [...]

#JFK The Life, The Loves, The Style

Unless you live in a cave, I’m sure you’ve heard that today is the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of JFK. His death in such a violent, horrific, shocking, and PUBLIC way and the endless speculation about it all is likely the biggest story involving any president of the United States, ever.

Paul Smith #LFW

Bloomin’ Sir Paul Smith’s middle name should be Lord Trouser! This man’s signature piece is definitely trousers galore. In fact, he’s known for his ‘classic pieces with a twist’ and that he’s looking to attract a particular client. Are you that client? Someone who is individual and not looking for label identification. If that’s you, [...]

What to wear when playing: GOLF

  Having met some exceptional sportsmen in my time, I know that the performance gear on the field, is sometimes filtered through to the everyday wear. The last thing you want to do is wear your training gear on the weekend, but when you’re fully immersed in your craft, and you’re perfecting it – sometimes [...]

Page and Cooper : Fine Things for Fine People

Things for the Wealthy. Times are a changing when it comes to the way us Gents buy. Studies throughout the USA and Europe are showing that we are more concerned about buying a piece of luxury that fits our DNA, than to buy the same expected luxury item to impress peers. If the item is [...]

Balmain Spring 2013 – The Lion’s Den

Is it possible that the house of Balmain is rebelling against the very origins they built their empire on? JEANS. “It’s out from the jeans now.” Fighting words. Olivier Rousteing inherited a house built on denim. Over the course of a few seasons at the helm, he’s worked to steer it in a new direction. [...]

Vivienne Westwood 2013; Black & Blue!

Putting it lightly, Westwood’s long heritage with fashion; from punk, to aligning her work with the homeless and destitute stirs controversy. To say the least.

Alexander McQueen’s Gangster Style #LCM

Alexander McQueen marked its return to London’s fashion calendar with a creepily compelling autumn/winter 2013 menswear collection. We guess with the latest craze on the 1920′s films to be debuted this year, inspiration has come from an era of chivalry, danger, masculinity and gangster style.

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.
