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 […]

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.

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!

A Guy’s Guide to being a Man’s Man

“Oh, Godfather, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do…” (SLAP!) “You can act like a MAN!” That classic line from ‘The Godfather’, circa 1972, seems like a far cry to our modern times; which are a surely changing.

‘Spiritual Mentor’ Archetype Movies for Men

Once upon a time, a Father was the major image-maker looked up to by his sons. Even an Uncle was an image of wisdom, safety and refuge for younger men and boys to which they could confide in. Throughout the last century, we have seen a lack of time, money, and most importantly, a lack […]

Becoming a Real Bad Boy!!

The reason many women today feel that something is missing in their men is because IT IS. In spite of what women they want from the men in their lives, and regardless of what society tells us to want, on some deep primal level women want men who exhibit the traits of an uncorrupted and […]

Porn. The secret vice of  … “men like me. Not all men, but men like all of us. Men who can’t get a date as well as men who have all the dates they could want. Men who live alone and men who are married. Men who grew up in liberal homes where pornography was […]

How to become the Quintessential Gentleman

Here at MenStylePower, we’re finding that women are moaning more and more, and it’s not in ecstasy. They’re upset with the lack of consideration and respect in their relationships with men; from the office to the home. In turn, the men we speak to are frustrated by the lack of respect they get from women, […]

The Hunter and Protector archetype is wonderfully characterized in the following films. Whether it be a father extending himself against incredible odds, or protecting his family against the dangers surrounding them in an often brutal world.

How to Win In A Financial Crisis

Bullsource.com says it well: “In late 2008, many learned that the mainstream media and most so-called “economists” failed to see a financial collapse coming, even months after entering a recession.” The result was a major hit to the US economy, which then ballooned to envelop the rest of the world. “Trillions was lost worldwide, as […]
