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

June 8, 2012


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


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


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, […]

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 […]

Menswear 2012: Definitely Not Run of the Mill

December 8, 2011


I’m ashamed to admit, I’m a little late to the party. Run Of the Mill stopped taking orders for their shoes on 26 November, but yet here I am with a small write up because I do believe theirs is a shop that is definitely not run of the mill. Beautiful, well crafted and coming […]

Crazy.Awesome.Suits: How to Dress Like Ryan Gosling

November 23, 2011


So… Confession: It’s not often that one Monsieur develops a man crush on another. Then you get a prime specimen smartly suited, effortlessly snarky, spectacularly sculpted in the form of Ryan Gosling in his latest film- Crazy.Stupid.Love. Yes, the movie is a departure from brooding independent flick Drive (check out his beautiful Patek Philippe)but steering from […]

Menswear 2011: HE by Mango Fall Winter Campaign

November 14, 2011


Apologies for the 2 week hiatus, work beckoned and as always, it’s nice to be gorgeously interrupted. Featuring Noah Mills and Brad Koenig, HE by Mango Fall Winter 2011 collection must be a definite reprieve for North America and alas, late for Australian climes. That said, HE by Mango has often held a siren call […]
