Bonobos x The Monsieur: Guide to Menswear Spring 2013

April 11, 2013

1

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 […]

Douglas Fairbanks once dubbed Savile Row the “undisputed capital to men’s tailoring”, while that is true, it does not mean that suits beyond the Row are substandard. Instead, there have been many men’s suiting boutiques that have served various Royalty throughout Europe, the Habsburg Archdukes for instance, got measured up at Knize Mode Atelier in […]

Classic elegance beyond Savile Row: LOWET Blizen SS2013

March 3, 2013

There have been a couple of classically styled menswear outfitters coming up within the last 5 years- all beyond Savile Row. I see that as more a reflection of the Row’s revival and the return of the well dressed man- these two events have led to the rise of reinterpreted classic men’s suit haberdashers like […]

The Monsieur’s Guide to Pocket Square Matching

March 1, 2013

5

Pocket square matching is a minefield laden exercise to the unaccustomed- this is in part, no thanks to departmental stores like Myers and David Jones, pushing matching tie and pochette sets to mass consumers. Otherwise known as the handkerchief, this humble square of silk, cotton, linen or occasionally wool, brings panache to an otherwise simple ensemble. While […]

Lino Leluzzi is The Monsieur: See his home at Al Bazar

February 28, 2013

In case you’ve been on a secret mission sans internet in North Korea, Lino Leluzzi is one man you need to know. He defines sprezzatura. In fact, if sprezzatura was personified, it would take the form of this Italian dandy. Owner of menswear boutique Al Bazar, Lino has been photographed, tumblred and now probably pinterested […]
