10 Must Have Man-Bags to Last a Lifetime

Us men shop differently to women. We all know that. We’re into investment pieces matching them back with our kick-abouts. We’re happy with good underwear, our favourite jeans, and t-shirts, but invest heavily into shoes, watches and bags. Alongside of this now is luxury writing instruments and whiskey! Yep, as Euromonitors predict. With the change [...]

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 [...]

Moschino Menswear 2014/5

Jeremy Scott. Man, you’ve done it again. Surprised us, made us cringe, made us look again and glorified the biggest small business in the world. I mean, who does that?! We’re bringing this collection to you because Gents, there’s always that outspoken and comical personality in us that wants a voice. Usually that’s when we’ve [...]

Zegna: Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It came as a surprise to hear Pilati insisting that his transformation of Zegna is happening in gentle increments, because on the evidence, he’s already come a long way in shifting the shape of the brand. Jackets are long, but they buttoned quite high, so the bottom flared a bit over full, slightly pegged pants. [...]

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, [...]

The Valentino Man

It seems ironical that the designers of Valentino, who pride themselves on some of the world’s most sought after suiting for men, have also designed what the world fashion market suggests is the most sought-after sneaker. It’s ironic, yet not surprising as we see the luxury high-end treating the mid-market as a vessel for uber-artistic [...]

Is Activewear the New Denim?

  Much like denim before it, activewear is increasingly being integrated into daily attire. So does activewear offer fashion brands the same kind of growth potential that designer denim did a decade ago? We think so. And does activewear look like it’s heading to become a ‘staple’ in men’s wardrobes? We think so too. Gap, [...]

Top 10 Executive Headphones 2014

  Headphone technology pretty much rocks across the board these days. Look beyond the basic buds and you move into a realm of enhanced dual drivers, individual tweeters, noise-cancellation, indestructible cables and custom molded fitting systems. It all comes at a price. A decent pair of “fashion headsets” these days can easily go for more [...]

The Melbourne Watch Company

In the words of Coco Chanel, Luxury is meant to be comfortable. She is of course, talking about the fit of the garments you buy for thousands of dollars. What if the comfort level was not only on the fit of a luxury item, but also on the wallet as well? Wouldn’t that be a [...]

John Hardy: The Conscious Jeweller

In a world where corporate companies focus on staying in control and practice self-preservation beyond the cares of the customer, it’s always refreshing to stumble across businesses, no matter how big or small, who are defiant in their consistency of transparency, sustainability and the concerns of the collective consciousness. Retail is detail. Detail in production, [...]

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 [...]
