G_Cant say I love you
30 JULY 2011

Can’t say ‘I love you’?…Read on.

As I sit here listening to Dave Matthews Band, I reminisce on the stories of first love that I’ve heard over the years. During my travels, I tend to eavesdrop. And no, I’m no perve, but I love listening in on people’s conversations and sensing where they’re at, or where they’re not at. Nothing saddens […]

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 […]

Zara’s opening shadows Burberry

Indeed it is true. The anticipation of the Spanish retail giant’s opening, shadowed Burberry’s flagship store launch last week. Almost a decade ago you just couldn’t write about it. A mid-market player pulling focus from a luxury brand that’s been established for over 150 years and highly respected throughout the world, lost in translation as […]

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. When we could all easily let the daily struggle to survive get to […]

Dimitri Chris (for Modasuite) reinvents the ‘Classic White Shirt’

Gents, remember our 2011 style trend prediction that designers (and humanity in general) will be yearning for and looking to past inspiration in order to move forward? Well, Modasuite – the quirky retail brand and innovative fashion movement – have certainly taken a few steps back to propel your wardrobe ahead of the game, by […]

Nautica Men’s Fall 2011 Collection: Official Fashion Looks by MenStylePower

In early February this year, we got an email from Nautica asking us to get involved, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2011, to identify some of our favorite pieces from their latest Men’s Fall 2011 Collection. Gents, we simply couldn’t say no! I mean, we dig Nautica so to turn our backs on this great […]

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 […]

I Am Alex Petty(4)

When you say his name it sounds like a French delicacy. When you see his face, you want to rough it up because it’s a bit too pretty. Yet, what is it about this British actor/model that makes you know, categorically, that he’s the next hot thing to watch? Last month, I was asked along […]

Dolce & Gabanna’s 80’s Anthem

Not sure if I’m all up in the grill or that enthused about D&G’s Fall collection. I’m a big fan of the brand, however because our MenStylePower aesthetic leans towards the elegance of Sean Connery rather than the shock value of Andy Warhol, I’m in 2 minds about how wearable pop culture is for the […]

A Taste of MenStylePower

You’ve asked. You’ve begged. You’ve pleaded. We’ve held off.  We’ve deliberated. We’ve asked ourselves a lot of hard questions. Finally we’ve come up with a visual presentation that we believe delivers the brand essence of MenStylePower. We won’t try wax lyrical about ourselves. Watch our distilled short film – and judge for yourself. Drop us […]

New Kids on the Block: Design Label WT02

Don’t you love brand spanking new blood and talent? I was checkin’ out Bruno Mars, B.o.B and Janelle Monae (Grammy Awards broadcast) and thinking how refreshing it to see young guys bring pure fun and fantastic talent to the mix; after all aren’t we’re tired of the dirty crumpin’, the Gaga gags and Rihanna’s way-too-much-skin […]
