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 [...]

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

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. (Hmmm, gimme one of those – preferably the SL55 all sport supercharged V8 engines producing an impressive 493 horsepower). Alas, the Divas, the Preeee-Madonnas and the devoted followers of this World called Fashion will be [...]

The New Subculture: SteamPunk

We all want to find those style items that say something significant about us. The MSP crew tend to buy items that have a connection with the individual; be it a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry or a watch. Something inside of us says “YES! That’s me”, and alas, the wallet opens with [...]

Saint Augustine Academy

I have to say that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of my cousins favourite movies. Why? Heck I don’t know. But I do know that it’s influenced many a hippy males dress sense. I had a teacher in high school once who loved his hawaiian hibiscus short sleeved shirts, and all the [...]

Dolce & Gabanna’s 80′s Anthem

Not sure if I’m all up in the grill or that enthused about D&G’s Fall collection. I’m a big fan of the brand, however because our MenStylePower aesthetic leans towards the elegance of Sean Connery rather than the shock value of Andy Warhol, I’m in 2 minds about how wearable pop culture is for the [...]

Bro-mance….ah, mate.

Holla Holla! There is a social phenomenon happening all over the world. And we dig discussions that break down the barriers of society’s much enforced ‘jail of expectation’. Gleefully, one of these subjects is categorically second in line to the confronting documentary, My Penis and Everyone Else’s; which as we’d all agree is potentially the [...]

A man and his horse…

Stop horsing around I hear you say? Polo is only for Royalty. It’s just for yuppies & celebrities and upper class snobbery. ….I don’t want to be involved with that mob… We have heard this statement quite a bit. Polo is a sport the public already knows and has association with class, wealth and privilege.  [...]

The Tie: Still hanging around.

The tie has been hanging around for many centuries. It all began when Croat soldiers from the Military in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian words for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name [...]

London Fashion Week shows Rooms Men

If it’s on the catwalks in Paris, and is being called a London design initiative, then we are absolutely convinced that in the near future the focus and importance in recognizing Men’s Fashion and Styling will be equal to that of the over-saturated female market. We recognised a gap in the market a year ago [...]
