Seen on The Rake: Rose & Born Fall Winter 2012

November 7, 2012

0

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
