The Extra Ordinary Man vs. The Extraordinary Man

Essence dot com’s Steven James Dixon gives you the 411 of being an amazing, respected, loved & extra – ordinary guy! “The Extra Ordinary Man vs. The Extraordinary Man” is a concept I developed that saved my marriage.

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 very ‘thing’ that I have pondered [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

To Be Or Not To Be Macho?

Masculinity, attraction and the future of manly men. (We’ve been tweeting alot lately about manhood and masculinity, and the response so far has been favourable so much so that we’ve decided to write up an article about the state of modern masculinity. Here goes):     Sometime within the past year, nearly 4,800 women participated [...]

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? This is a question that keeps popping up time and again at the MenStylePower pow wows. [...]

In Love, It’s A Question of Integrity…

The following caught our eye here at MenStylePower and is excerpted from CNN: A recent Facebook status update: “Maybe it’s just me, but I am extremely uncomfortable with any married man calling me “just to say hi.” Not good! Respect your wife! Comments flew in … The biggest complaint from most women was that lately [...]

Cue the Mood Lighting

Beyond lighting your fireplace as the cool of winter approaches, mood lighting is completely under-used. Many of us, due to our busy lifestyles and the little personal time we allocate ourselves, tend to work huge hours, and on return to the abode, fall into bed. Perhaps you’re working on the weekend with your halogen lights [...]

Sexiness has nothing to do with Sex

We’re never ready for that electable feeling of manliness that can creep into our groins when traipsing home from the boxing ring in sweaty Lonsdale’s and smelling not far from an abattoir. But you’re feeling good. Damn Good. And we’re never expecting the moment when you’ve fully serviced yourself in the shower, sung few tunes [...]
