Into the Blue – Menswear Spring Edit September 2014.

How is the weather at the moment? Awesome! A little conversation. I use to work for a guy who each morning, would roll out the weather report and his experience at a 6am swim every morning to his staff. Sounds intriguing? Ahem, well 3 years on it’s predictable and boring. Alas, there were some terrific [...]

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, [...]

What Makes A Man … A Man?

MenStylePower is in serious mode today. We’re thinking deeply. We’re tossing out (temporarily) our fashion related style notes and delving into the male psyche. We’re putting aside fluff and pulling off the gloves. We’re toughening up and we’re asking the big question: What makes a man … a man? It all started after a long [...]

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. Color to them represents a sense of femininity, which they want to avoid at all costs, so they tend to stay in the hues of blues, greys and blacks. Maybe a little latte [...]

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). [...]

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 [...]

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?

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. [...]

Seven Don’ts of Men’s Styling

We all make fashion errors now and again, but some fashion mistakes made by men are never forgotten. Back in the late 18th century to make a mistake in fashion was almost unforgivable, and those who witnessed your mistake did not want to be seen with you, and they would not invite you out with [...]

Ombré Olay!

Who said ombré was just for the ladies? Some fashion designers proposed ombré menswear to be very much on trend last year. Fashion forward thinkers such as Ann Demeulemeester, Raf Simons, Phillip Lim 3:1 and Jonathan Saunders Fall/Winter 2013 all highlighted the latest gradient prints.I am not surprised that Z Zegna creative director Paul Surridge proposed ombré [...]
