The Elegant Pocket-Square; Mark of the Gentleman

Today we have many a man tie-less – only wearing jackets. Now, in the world of suiting, this is definitely perceived as being a little under-dressed. Do we care? Yes and No. There are a few accessories that men have the ability to go ape with, and one of them is the trusty pocket-square. A [...]

Men in Black (How to wear it, and keep it looking fly!)

  Nothing looks as elegant and as chic as black clothing. It covers a multitude of sins, makes you look slimmer, works with almost every complexion and matches almost everything. Black clothes are the basis of many a self respecting dude’s wardrobe – from Kanye to Bond, Obama to Pitt, and even the regular Joe [...]

Dress for the Opposite Sex

  Do you ever wonder when you’re looking through your wardrobe if what you wear, turns your lady friend on? It’s no secret that women generally dress for the opposite sex. Quite obviously though, the majority of ladies dress sense has gone from the Chanel style in the 50′s where skirt lengths were elegant and [...]

M.J. Bale: Sushi, Sake & Samurai Suiting

Buying a suit can make you panic at the best of times. The price, the cut, the right fit, the hanging of one’s thousand dollar suit in your own wardrobe. Some of this requires basic common sense, and some; damn good advice from an expert in the trade. MenStylePower had the privilege of downing some [...]

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 [...]

What does the oracle of fashion, Miuccia Prada have in store for us throughout the seasons?

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 [...]

The history of MSGM begins with the following imperative: never look back. The future is here, ahead of us. Fashion, as a consequence, is today. Maybe tomorrow. Surely not yesterday. Fashion has to be found between the invisible lines of the Internet, in the looks of the new generations on Facebook, in the thousands of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The latest from Zara Man

Ah Zara. How well you understand your market – your impatient,indecisive, impractical, short attention span Gen X & Y market, whose moods and clothing preferences change just as often as they brush their teeth. However Zara just doesn’t appeal to the “fast and fabulous” fashionisto, thank God. Their well priced approach to tailoring means that [...]

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 [...]
