A. Sauvage – African Art for the Suit and Tie

It’s always been a pondering artistic question regarding menswear as to the amount of interchangeable garments available with a gents suit. The number of designers who want to rescue the suit and present it as not-just-a-dressy-thing for today’s man keeps on growing. It is, of course, a testament to how important this menswear staple is, [...]

Aoud Jewelry for Men from Italy

Here at Menstylepower, we’ve found that color is a scary concept for Gents who are just starting out reworking their personal style.

Marc Jacobs’ Resort for Men 2014 – YES PLEASE!

DAMN RIGHT. We’re really enjoying the written word on the sweaters, which of course was started in the 70′s exposing political dislike among the public. Today, it’s just a given that some of the most powerful designers are going to keep some core items in their collections, saying ‘sumthin sumthin;’ AKA MAXWELL! (Big shout out). [...]

The Dirty Gucci Man…Comes Clean

The notoriously Dirty Gucci Man, (not to be confused with Dirty Gucci Mane; rapper) is a term used for that elegantly dress man with a five o’clock shadow and that JBF hairstyle, who quite frankly darlin’… couldn’t give a damn. The girls love him, the gents want to be him, and he’s been around for [...]

Must-have looks for Men Winter 2014: Old-school Style

The attraction of Yester-year is certainly a trend moving from last season into the now. Is it the renaissance of the Gentleman? Is it the adaptation of vintage to modern?

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.

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 [...]
