Cue the Mood Lighting, It’s Christmas

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 […]

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 […]

A New Era in Eco-Friendly Fashion

Have you ever ceased buying a product because you know it’s associated with child labor? Or found out that the charity you have been supporting has actually been abusing children not rescuing them? If so, then personal ethics are high on your value system. MenStylePower have come across a superb label based in Belgium that […]

Men’s Style at the Emmy’s 2012

Ah, the 2012 Emmy Awards: the triumphant wins and the harrowing losses. The beautiful women borrowing expensive jewelry and wearing revealing dresses. The speeches thanking people you’ve never heard of before. And, then, of course, the men wearing fantastic tailoring. This year, Jon Hamm looked as excellent as ever in his tuxedo. And maybe the […]

Alexander Skarsgård unapologetically masculine

It seems our beloved Calvin Klein has again received full marks by consumers with the latest edition of male (vampire) hunks being recruited into the fashion houses’ den.  The latest news is TV vampire Alexander Skarsgård is about to sink his teeth into an encounter with Calvin Klein. First there was Kellan Lutz from the […]

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 […]

Wolsey, Fit for a King.

  The British heritage brand Wolsey (perhaps the only line that targets street-wear enthusiasts and supplies hosiery and knitwear to the Queen) has commenced showcasing its collection with a more fashion-forward spin-off called 1755 — a modern brand curiously named after the year the company was founded. In a world where competition is fierce and […]

Zara’s opening shadows Burberry

Indeed it is true. The anticipation of the Spanish retail giant’s opening, shadowed Burberry’s flagship store launch last week. Almost a decade ago you just couldn’t write about it. A mid-market player pulling focus from a luxury brand that’s been established for over 150 years and highly respected throughout the world, lost in translation as […]

Dolce and Gabbana’s SS11 Collection

Why is it that when we see a fashion show be it Paris, Milan or New York, the male designers will always walk out at the end wearing one of the following three co-ordinations; A suit or, jeans, vest and jacket or, jeans t-shirt and blazer. Even the most creative of them i.e Dolce and […]

The Bald and the Beautiful

Bald is bold. Bald is BAAAAD. Boys, bald is back. While you shudder in the bathroom at your tresses clogging up the sink, when you whimper at the sight of your mane clinging to your girl’s nails when she drags them through your scalp, when you begin wearing caps and fedoras at jaunty angles to hide […]

The Westwood Homeless

Right so this must be the new way designers are showing off their ranges, because if you put all this stuff together for your daily outfit, you’d be looked upon as some homeless duff. Right? So, in viewing these pictures, you can see that the consumer would more than likely say, “Ok, I love the […]

Vampires and their Hair

Quite unknown and obviously youthful, Kristen and Robert have exposed their real-life relationship which obviously has developed from their silver screen tension. Clearly Robert Pattinson is the heart-throb of nearly every teenage girl on the planet. And included in this group are Gen X and Baby-boomers who are happy to reminisce on such days when […]

Brace Yourself!

Nothing is amusing or frivolous when it comes to Style. Fashion on the other hand, being a very different concept, allows the ‘fashionistas’ to frolic and dance through materials, designs, carrot top jeans, fluros and more (while I’m somewhat snickering on my sleeve over being told by a trend setter that carrot top jeans were […]

I’m a Pant’s Man – fit em’ well please!

There is soooo much out there on the www, that it’s a given you’re going to miss something. So the Stylemeisters beat their chests when they come across such a find. Bonobos is fashion ‘man-speak’ at its best, and if you know your world animals (and not just think you’re one in the bedroom) you’ll […]

Sport & Fashion Combo…

It’s not often you come across a ‘sportswear’ label that has successfully infiltrated the men’s ‘fashion’ world. When we say that, we mean they have dominated two categories in the garment business. You’d sit and ponder wouldn’t you, to whom it it would be to achieve this. The German’s – with their attention to detail […]

Loose fitting clothes – art or deception?

There are reasons why men wear what they wear. And at Style Power we have looked into the psyche of why we do such a thing. Men will usually wear what they are use to or have seen. But they also wear clothes to purposely look good or bad. (I see you’re perplexed) In this […]
