Best Value Art Deco Gent’s Watch: Hamilton Flintridge Limited Edition

April 9, 2014

0

I’m not a horology snob even though my day job requires that I don the guise of one. That said, while I am saddened by the demise and subsequent acquisition of many watch brands- such is life, I am very happy whenever someone with heritage worth a damn re-issues an archive piece. In this case, […]

Ride Stylishly: Berluti and Cycles Victoire Collaboration

April 4, 2014

0

When you look at men like Aidan Shaw and the tons of other rakishly handsome cads on bicycles at Pitti Uomo, it’s easy to shrug, raise palms in defeat, sigh to the heavens and rue the day that genetics dealt you a bum hand with lousy looks. OR, you could simply ride stylishly by way […]

5 Timeless Laptop Briefcases Worth Buying

November 10, 2013

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Grenson Shoes x Foot the Coacher for Mr. Porter

August 10, 2013

Grenson Shoes was one of those brands born from absolute necessity. Literally home grown (when William Green’s father passed on and he had to help his mother produce mens’ boots at home), this English heritage brand continued as a cottage industry until Green established his own craft in 1866 as William Green & Son. Not before […]

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, 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 […]
