On Meeting Paul Smith and being Busy

October 24, 2012

0

This blog has been slightly (understatement) overlooked and I apologise. The truth is dear fellow Monsieurs, is I’ve been busy working on another project. I’ve taken an appointment as Group Editor for a men’s luxury magazine- The Rake. You might read about it in Monocle or perhaps chanced upon a copy while getting a suit […]

Menswear 2013: Ovadia & Sons Spring Summer Collection

September 22, 2012

0

I’ve been pretty psyched. While work gets underway over at The Rake In Brief and an up coming revamp of the online edition, I managed to get contact with the press manager for Ariel and Shimon Ovadia- indeed the erstwhile designer brothers of the beautiful (and immensely affordable) collection of classic men’s looks, as it […]

Menswear 2012: Hackett London Autumn Winter

September 3, 2012

It’s hard to believe how Hackett London began from a small store on King’s Road, London Chelsea to the now nascent quintessentially british brand right next to Burberry. From once selling used sorry, vintage clothing to now, a sartorial atelier in it’s own right, Hackett London is in my opinion, the British off the rack answer […]

A Style Adventure: Bally Men’s Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

August 23, 2012

So I’m back in the swing of things, somewhat settled in Singapore and still trying to settle in at The Rake and Revolution where I’m tasked with revamping both portals. Right out the gate, I was tasked to attend Bally Men’s Autumn Winter 2012 presentation. The 2012 Men’s collection for Bally Autumn Winter is one […]

The Monsieur’s Guide to Men’s Smart Casual: Courtesy of Mango HE SS2012

Dress: smart casual. No three words have caused as much consternation as those found on countless invite cards. Also called business casual or dressed down, the death of the regular Mad Men 9-to-5 suit has left many sartorially clueless at what to wear for work and play- This Monsieur’s guide to Men’s Smart Casual would […]

The Monsieur’s Guide to Preppy Dress Style- Featuring Gant Rugger

June 6, 2012

1

Some might consider preppy dress style a departure for a classic gentleman but if you think about it, most monsieurs (author included) spent their formative years in catholic schools; decked out in green blazers and green & white striped ties. That scholarly upbringing with an emphasis on culture has created a breed of men best […]

Menswear 2012: Burberry Black Label

May 13, 2012

In this US-Euro-Anglo-centric world, I’m often pretty surprised when brands like Burberry save the good stuff for Asia. Burberry Black Label’s Spring Summer 2012 collection for men is a combination of fashion forward cuts combined with classic looks- all in all, making this season’s offering one of the sharpest (because of the slim cutting) this […]

Bespoke Wardrobe: Caught Up in Corter Leather Bags

May 10, 2012

Handcrafted goods- some consider it as unnecessary expense; I consider it a luxe investment. Truth is, with anything bespoke, what you are paying for is the quality that not only lasts but exudes classic elegance. Fact is, you could spend thousands trying to stay ahead of the fashion curve, but a real Monsieur realizes the […]

Travel in Style: How to Travel Light yet Heavy on Style

April 8, 2012

2

I’m making a list of what to pack for my 2 week trip back to Singapore and I thought it might be worth a write up to clear up some travel misconceptions. It’s a common misunderstanding that travel involves comfortable clothing sans elegance and expression. This couldn’t be further away from the truth; fact is, […]

Menswear 2012: Alexander McQueen Fall Collection

January 18, 2012

The man may have passed but his legacy lives on in Sarah Burton, if ever there was proof that women can sometimes make better menswear designers than men, this is it. Working with Savile Row luminary Huntsman, Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 collection  harkens back to an age of classically elegant gent and gentry; a world […]
