Whimsical accessories: Monsieur Fox cufflinks and pocket squares

September 2, 2013

2

When I was first deciding on a name for my menswear blog, “Monsieur” was an easy option, conjuring up imagery of a dapper Parisian gentleman. Monsieur Fox  on the other hand, paints the image of dashing rogue-gent, well dressed and ready for mischief. Stylishly Whimsical: Monsieur Fox cufflinks and pocket squares Not to be confused with Merchant […]

Tailored to Suit: Luigi Bianchi Mantova

September 1, 2013

2

In 1898, a 16 year old man would live his township of San Michele in Bosco and make his way to Turin in order to continue a long family tradition of Bianchi men (Paride, his father and Giuliano, his grandfather) entering the tailoring trade. I’m talking about Luigi Bianchi who like his sons aEdgardo and […]

Sartorially Italian: Gucci x Lapo Elkann Style Collaboration

August 9, 2013

Apologies, I’ve been busy with yet another stylish magazine; This print + web publication called The Millenary aims to put the world of haute horlogerie in context, that is- luxury watch collecting with all the other sartorial accessories that go with it. That said, my mind never strayed too far away from my other passion- this […]

Handcrafted Leather: Vichithong produces beautiful iPad cases

March 8, 2013

1

I’ve owned a couple of cheap (sub $100) iPad and laptop cases over the years but one thing I’ve learnt is that when it comes to quality and craftsmanship, the $500 you pay for a well made handcrafted leather iPad cover is one you’ll profit from when 10 years later, the technology is outmoded but […]

Seen on The Rake: Rose & Born Fall Winter 2012

November 7, 2012

Rose & Born FW 2012 Beau Brummell can teach us a thing or two about how to dress. Born George Bryan Brummell, this arbiter of men’s style overturned two centuries worth of ostentatious foppery and finery and instituted a code of menswear we still follow today. That code, we call classic elegance: perfectly fitted, understated […]

Seen on The Rake: Globe-Trotter for James Bond

October 29, 2012

James Bond’s Globe-Trotter suitcase Now that James Bond: Skyfall has premiered, Bond fever is definitely in full swing and meeting a confluence of end-of-year travel dreams. I’ve often attempted to balance my freakishly anal need for matching luggage and the practicality (in terms of theft avoidance) when it comes to designer suitcases but therein lies […]

The Monsieur & Paul Stuart: A Guide to Dressing with Colour

October 26, 2012

0

Contrary to popular belief, classic elegance isn’t about dressing in monotones- it’s about understanding cuts and fits (no super slim lapels, no super short jackets) that are timeless. While it is true that gents in Downton Abbey tended to dress in funereal tones, that’s more an issue with conservatism rather than style. I’m here to […]

On Meeting Paul Smith and being Busy

October 24, 2012

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

3

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 […]
