Into The Wild (with Sruli Recht)

This Easter, The Stylemeister is headed deep into the southern highlands of my state; into a wild, untamed landscape that’s been left to evolve and flow into lush, green hills and valleys, where wildlife is free, the landscape’s barely touched and where humans remain scarce. I’ll be setting up camp under the stars, hunting, clearing […]

Gents, we simply couldn’t say no! I mean, we dig Nautica so to turn our backs on this great […]

Art Appreciation, Cubism and Enrico Coveri

Dudes, how much do you know about art? Some say that art is man’s loftiest endeavor — a mortal attempt to be like God, to create something where there was nothing, to move the spirit and touch the soul. Others say that art is a load of sheep dip. Most of us fall somewhere in […]

The latest from Zara Man

Ah Zara. How well you understand your market – your impatient,indecisive, impractical, short attention span Gen X & Y market, whose moods and clothing preferences change just as often as they brush their teeth. However Zara just doesn’t appeal to the “fast and fabulous” fashionisto, thank God. Their well priced approach to tailoring means that […]

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 […]

New Kids on the Block: Design Label WT02

Don’t you love brand spanking new blood and talent? I was checkin’ out Bruno Mars, B.o.B and Janelle Monae (Grammy Awards broadcast) and thinking how refreshing it to see young guys bring pure fun and fantastic talent to the mix; after all aren’t we’re tired of the dirty crumpin’, the Gaga gags and Rihanna’s way-too-much-skin […]

Men’s Style at the GRAMMYS 2011

The red carpet must be quite a daunting journey to traverse. Although just taking up a few metres – not even two hundred in some cases – the baying calls of the paparazzi and the blood thirsty journos vying for your attention must make a journey through the far reaches of the Amazon seem like […]

A Romantic Interlude: Massimo Dutti’s New Campaign

Romantic, airy and oh-so-breezy was the campaign look and feel for Massimo Dutti’s spring 2011 campaign photographed by Paola Kudacki and modeled by David Gandy. This laid back and quixotic collection features linens and casual knits alike made for a spring and summer relaxed sophistication. Another example of Spain’s rising fashion notoriety, the label’s sense […]

Bottega Veneta Fall 2011 – Velvet Underground

Viva La Velvet-olution! The evolution and revival of velvet comes to full maturity in 2011, at least according to Bottega Veneta. By dragging (and updating) that so-could-be-70s shaggy pile and velvet carpet cliche into 2011, Bottega are expressing some major confidence; encouraging assertive elegance and rebel flair in men. At the runway show, you couldn’t […]
