Menswear trends according to Pitti Uomo

“With Pitti Uomo begins a month-long cycle that tends to leave even the most dedicated follower of fashion feeling as glutted as a foie gras goose on corporate design agendas.” Pitti Uomo? Who? It’s neither the name of an Italian count gone rogue nor a notoriously expensive entree at a ridiculously exclusive Michelin establishment, although [...]

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 [...]

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). [...]

EkoCycle Menswear by will.i.am

  Now if will.i.am isn’t a style icon, then I’m not a Ducati riding dude. And you all know I am. I have no idea why we didn’t come across this exception, innovative, sustainable, forward thinking brand earlier, because if we had, we’d have ordered our allotment of shirts earlier. Awesome!

#Balmain FW Menswear Collection: On Safari

Last season’s menswear collection for Balmain, created by Rousteing we entitled “The Lion’s Den’….The colours were safari driven, tonal, latte almost alchemist-esque. This season, Rousteing has again worked a safari theme. Yet this collection arrives in tones of olive green, khaki, and camel, and a more-than-fair amount of exotic animal prints from leopard to zebra. [...]

The girls love him, the gents want to be him, and he’s been around for [...]

Louis Vuitton vs. H & M

The world of fashion is changing. Fast. Once upon a time, fashion was only accessible to the rich, now-a-days – with commercialism, capitalism and other economic and egotistical factors, fashion (now expected to be fast fashion) is touched by all. We, as a modern, metro and entitled people, want our products without delayed gratification. And [...]
