Michael Zavros – A Brilliant Horseman

It always astounds me, when walking through private homes or galleries, how we are awed by art that looks nothing more than a 6 year old’s Sunday lunch scribble. No offense, I’m a lover of fine and delicious things, and I understand the training and natural talent needed to be an artist, yet if it’s [...]

The Best 5 Warrior Movie Characters for Men

The archetypes of men is a seriously valid, and sometimes sadly familiar topic. We say this initially with a peppering of lowliness, as on average man today is experiencing a major identity crisis due to the erosion of our societal structures, shifts in gender roles and the disappearance of strong role models. Archetypes have traditionally [...]

What Makes A Man … A Man?

MenStylePower is in serious mode today. We’re thinking deeply. We’re tossing out (temporarily) our fashion related style notes and delving into the male psyche. We’re putting aside fluff and pulling off the gloves. We’re toughening up and we’re asking the big question: What makes a man … a man? It all started after a long [...]

A Mark of Dignity!

Every now and then I get a little obsessive about searching for a significant item that will define not only those style lovers who want to break out of the saturated retail market, but also for those unique individuals who aren’t lured into the greed that is consumerism.

That Effortless Cool in Men’s Styling

You don’t need to be born in Europe to have effortless ‘Style’. Many dudes we’ve knocked into have this je ne sais quoi – which in French means, ‘I don’t know what’. And as we’d say in the USA, ‘I don’t know what it is, but…’ – It’s a state of mind, an attitude. It [...]

A Most Dangerous Race: Dakar!

“The brave man is not he who feels no fear, for that were stupid and irrational; but he, whose noble soul its fear subdues, and bravely dares what nature shrinks from.” Are men designed and created to be dangerous?
