Sydney is pumped with A.N.T.I.C.I.P.A.T.I.O.N, as it bumps into several locations for its bi-annual Fashion Week sponsored by Mercedes Benz.

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 […]
