The New Subculture: SteamPunk

We all want to find those style items that say something significant about us. The MSP crew tend to buy items that have a connection with the individual; be it a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry or a watch. Something inside of us says “YES! That’s me”, and alas, the wallet opens with [...]

Wolsey, Fit for a King.

  The British heritage brand Wolsey (perhaps the only line that targets street-wear enthusiasts and supplies hosiery and knitwear to the Queen) has commenced showcasing its collection with a more fashion-forward spin-off called 1755 — a modern brand curiously named after the year the company was founded. In a world where competition is fierce and [...]

Audi, Henri Lloyd and Yacht Racing

Now if you’re anything like me, you’d like to keep your feet on dry land. Where there are some who enjoy a good ol’ dip in the salty masses; but for me, I signed a contract with the sharks a long time ago. I stay out of their waters, and they stay out of my [...]

GIs, Aviators, Hot Rods & Style

Summer in the Mojave Desert circa 1946: under a glaringly hot sun, armies of young, yet not-so-carefree GIs, survivors of the Great war, take to the highways in hot rods and mo’bikes, cruising through the American landscape en masse, trying to recreate the camaraderie and feeling of belonging they’d discovered during their time fighting together [...]

Paris Fashion Week says ‘Loosen up man’!

Time and time again while covering the men’s components of Milan and Paris fashion weeks we touched on it: that dominant, relaxed aesthetic that men who are tired of the crotch hugging, thigh squishing feel of the overt skinny cut have to look forwards to amongst autumn / fall 2011 fashions. And beyond. Men’s fashion [...]

Zaharoff: Sophisticated Suiting

When it comes to men’s suiting many of us shy away from any or all decisions around the purchase apart from whether it needs to be a three piece, a two piece and needs a friendly price tag. But, if you appreciate your suit like you do a European sports car, then you would add [...]

Into The Wild (with Sruli Recht)

This Easter, The Stylemeister is headed deep into the southern highlands of my state; into a wild, untamed landscape that’s been left to evolve and flow into lush, green hills and valleys, where wildlife is free, the landscape’s barely touched and where humans remain scarce. I’ll be setting up camp under the stars, hunting, clearing [...]

Men’s Thread Trends – April 2011

It’s only after I compiled this list of April’s hottest menswear trends, that I realised that there was a theme coming through – casual and relaxed – with a lean towards denim and blues to really pull through that chilled out look.

Art Appreciation, Cubism and Enrico Coveri

Dudes, how much do you know about art? Some say that art is man’s loftiest endeavor — a mortal attempt to be like God, to create something where there was nothing, to move the spirit and touch the soul. Others say that art is a load of sheep dip. Most of us fall somewhere in [...]

Men’s Thread Trends – March 2011

In March 2011, style is all about the delineation between Mr Nice Guy and Mr Bad Boy. Why do we say that? Well, style trends today are neither one or the other; a dude can now walk out of his pad on Monday in a dark hoodie and torn jeans – reminiscent of the street [...]
