Basel 2014: Not Your Usual Omega Speedmaster

April 7, 2014

2

There’s a very short list when it comes to famous chronographs: Universal’s Compax, Zenith’s El Primero, Rolex’s Daytona (also powered, previously, by El Primero) and Cosmograph, Heuer’s Carrera (before TAG acquisition) and Breitling’s Navitimer BUT head above them all, resting before on the moon itself is one chronograph- the Omega Speedmaster Professional. After exhaustive tests […]

5 Timeless Laptop Briefcases Worth Buying

November 10, 2013

2

I’ve been on a briefcase hunt lately and the requirements for luxury watch journalist are quite challenging. Obviously if money was no option, shelling out thousands for a Dunhill or Louis Vuitton briefcase is definitely a no brainer. That said, the salary of a writer isn’t exactly something that can stretch in the directions of […]

Historical Elegance: Longines Avigation Oversize Crown

October 7, 2013

2

There are few watches which can boast genuine aviation pedigree and the Longines Avigation Oversize Crown is one such sample of elegant aesthetics and aviator functionality. More than a reproduction of the original Longines model created in the 1920s, the all new timepiece with 41mm diameter and ‘flight-legible’ dial with white numerals and gold-plated lumed […]

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 […]

Sartorially Italian: Gucci x Lapo Elkann Style Collaboration

August 9, 2013

3

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 […]

The most stylish movie ever made: The Thomas Crown Affair

April 24, 2013

5

I recently caught the Pierce Brosnan remake of the 1968 original Thomas Crown Affair and I’ve found it wanting. While the 1999 incarnation has gratuitous sex (probably more a statement of a decade of Basic Instinct led cinematic titillation), I felt dirtied rather than stimulated by its tawdry. Inversely, the original affair was showcased on the precipice of […]

The classically elegant neckties of Passaggio Cravatte

April 18, 2013

3

It’s often a second thought, the necktie is normally chosen after one has decided which suit to wear. That said, ties allow us to express individual style- they can make an ensemble dressier or turn a formal look into preppy smart casual. The real tragedy is that neckties are the single most versatile dress up-dress […]

Bonobos x The Monsieur: Guide to Menswear Spring 2013

April 11, 2013

Menswear in Spring time is a high point in every sartorialist’s calendar. It’s one of the few times where the less confident among us can explore the realms of sprezzetura without an iota of self-consciousness. While surfing my usual favourite web spots, I came across a well curated collection of spring summer 2013 looks that […]

Menswear for debonair men: Check blazers and Oliver Sweeney Kilties

March 28, 2013

0

We all know that the well dressed man is back but what exactly makes him “well dressed”- is he perennially in top hat and coat tails? Obviously not. Dressing well is about projecting your personal sense of style and good taste rather than lumping a collection of blazers, shirts and trousers and calling it a look- It’s […]

Modern, Cool & Mechanical: Seven Friday

March 8, 2013

0

When Richard Mille watches first appeared on the scene- it was one of those horological wonders that I would never be afford and even if I could, never justify to the wife. I’m not comparing the Seven Friday watch to RM, far from it. It’s just that in terms of modern, cool and mechanical timepieces, […]
