Stylish gadgets for: Shaving, Charging and Escaping Handcuffs

April 14, 2013

After the discussing something as serious as suit construction and the merits of floating canvasses, I figured I could use a break and decided to update the old travel dopp kit with some stylish gadgets like: 100 proof Charging PowerFlask It’s bloody annoying trying to keep track of all the damn power adapters to charge the […]

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

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 […]

The Monsieur’s Guide to Men’s Smart Casual: Courtesy of Comodo Square Korea

Men’s smart casual is a tripwire laden subject in this era of blazer and shorts ensembles. Previously, Mango HE SS12 provided good examples for smart casual dressing; but recently, I got to learn of a Korean men’s outfitter by the name of Comodo Square. There’s little information on them but when it comes to menswear, […]

Beyond Savile Row: Knize Mode Atelier in Vienna

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 […]

Menswear 2013: Rise of the Classically Dressed Gentleman

March 9, 2013

Last month, New York Times T magazine celebrated The Rise of the Well-Dressed Man and in their op-ed piece welcomed us all to the age of sartorial enlightenment. I agree with the premise but disagree with their assertion that Joe Namath was metrosexual avant la lettre. In fact if anything, his “wooly pecs” and “dense happy trail” categorically […]

Modern, Cool & Mechanical: Seven Friday

March 8, 2013

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, […]

Handcrafted Leather: Vichithong produces beautiful iPad cases

March 8, 2013

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 […]

Tool Watch not included: Functional yet stylish Gentleman’s Apron

There’s one scene that will perpetually tickle my funny bone- Derek Zoolander “fashionably mining” in the coal pits. But still, it struck a chord with me- the age of the form-obsessed metrosexual is dead, long live the alpha male. All monsieurs should possess both form AND function, there’s something to be admired about the well dressed […]

It’s true there’s been an uptick of classic English menswear coming from outside Savile Row now but we can still trust the British Isles to be home to some of the finest meccas to sartorial living and a lifestyle of elegance. This latest bastion of men’s style? The Merchant Fox. Based in South West England, […]
