Balmain Spring 2013 – The Lion’s Den

Is it possible that the house of Balmain is rebelling against the very origins they built their empire on? JEANS. “It’s out from the jeans now.” Fighting words. Olivier Rousteing inherited a house built on denim. Over the course of a few seasons at the helm, he’s worked to steer it in a new direction. [...]

Stubble Trouble? Shave Smartly with RazWar.

With the prevalence of cheap, disposable razors, shaving is not quite as efficient or long-lasting.  The days of the classic shave, when men took their sons to barber shop, are not over. In fact, while the grungy, unkempt look has its own adherents, clean-cut and savvy is still society’s favorite look. So, party season’s here again and Movember [...]

The Holster Belt – Ride em’ UrbanBoy

I’ve always been fascinated by Cowboys & Indian characters. The saddle work, the elaborate head-dresses, the lifestyle, spirituality, the courage, wisdom and commitment. These, as you can image are all the romantic elements of the Cowboys & Indians era. Of course there was a very bloody side to it as well, which is devastating. But [...]

MSP Thread Trend Alert – November 2012

Spring in the south, and Autumn in the north. But with global warming, I’m afraid that the seasons are somewhat out of whack. Regardless, I am assuming that most people enjoy Spring more – so bring on the budding blooms and the smell of sea salt in the air! Ducati’s, convertibles and pushbikes. Classy accessories, [...]

Movember – Get your Moustache on!

TEN years ago two blokes enjoying a beer in a Melbourne pub, joked about bringing back a cultural icon of the 70s – the moustache. Yeah you know what it is. You’ve probably even tried to grow one and couldn’t stand the time it took to do so – so gave in, whipped out the [...]

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 [...]

Men in Black (How to wear it, and keep it looking fly!)

  Nothing looks as elegant and as chic as black clothing. It covers a multitude of sins, makes you look slimmer, works with almost every complexion and matches almost everything. Black clothes are the basis of many a self respecting dude’s wardrobe – from Kanye to Bond, Obama to Pitt, and even the regular Joe [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
