Menswear 2012: Ovadia & Sons Collection

May 15, 2012


It’s only been a short 2 years but Ovadia & Sons have not only captured my attention with their tradition adhering suit collections since Spring Summer 2011 but also the acclaim from peers and media alike for their detailed, well cut, high end suiting. The Brooklyn brothers Shimon and Ariel haven’t had the marketing guile […]

How to Wear Colour: Courtesy of CAMO (Italy) Autumn Winter 2012

February 2, 2012


Colour and the wearing of it isn’t the domain of metrosexuals and gays. Nor is it for the faint of heart. While it is quite easy to carry a classic look of black, grey, navy and earth tones, it is not all that difficult to spice up your personal style with a splash of colour; […]

Men’s Style Tip: A Menswear 2012 Visual Guide to The Perfect Fit

January 24, 2012


I don’t know what is it with most men and their dress sense- perhaps it’s a historical artifact to an age where mothers dressed their little boys in large outfits because “Junior outgrows his shirts too quickly”; perhaps it’s the male penchant to disregard form (an irony) and embrace function wholeheartedly in mistaken belief that […]

Menswear 2012: Alexander McQueen Fall Collection

January 18, 2012


The man may have passed but his legacy lives on in Sarah Burton, if ever there was proof that women can sometimes make better menswear designers than men, this is it. Working with Savile Row luminary Huntsman, Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 collection  harkens back to an age of classically elegant gent and gentry; a world […]

Menswear 2012: Jil Sander Fall Collection

January 18, 2012


In the aftermath of being back from Christmas Break (tons of work and emails to clear), I must apologise that I have been remiss in keeping the blog updated. This 2012, I hope to be more consistent with my posts; the goal- 1 per day; but I digress. I guess it’s somewhat fortuitous that I’ve […]

Tinker Tailor Soldier Style: Recreating the 70s Spy

December 28, 2011


Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has a lot going for it. For one, the plot already carries enough weight to pique the interest of the most plebeian of us all- a spy story that centers on Smiley called out of retirement to hunt down a mole within MI6, lovingly referred to by Le Carre as “The Circus”; […]

The Bespoke Wardrobe: Custom Made Head to Toe

September 21, 2011


I’ve often extolled the virtues of penny wisdom- making a few crucial luxury investments, mixing it up with the affordable; in tandem, a look that makes you look dressed above your paygrade. Thus far, I’ve been sensible (the wife would disagree) but just sometimes a boy can dream (the wife will frown at the expenditure) […]

Autumn 2011: Brooks Brothers Black Fleece

August 11, 2011


It’s winter and though Melbourne winters are relatively mild; autumn winter seasons are really the best time to get your style on. Two things- fun with layers OR awesome fleece. Now I already have a flannel suit, so when I heard Thom Browne was looking to original Brooks Brothers’ hunting attires for inspiration, I was […]

Miami Nice: Canali Spring Summer 2012 Menswear Lookbook

June 24, 2011


Canali Spring Summer 2012 Menswear Collection Taking visual cues from Indian tunics, the Spring-Summer 2012 collection of fine Italian menswear from Canali  is a wardrobe of fitted suits and well cut blazers. Classically elegant garments available in dusty rose tones, orange and pink evoke for me the spirit but none of the gaudiness of Miami Vice. […]

Classic Elegance Defined: Burberry Autumn Winter 2011

June 13, 2011


  Classic Elegance Defined: Burberry Autumn Winter 2011 Since Christopher Bailey took the reigns from Burberry, the British label has just been going from strength to strength. This Autumn Winter 2011 campaign is no different, featuring British actors, models and musicians, Burberry has produced what I feel is the best of English style, the man […]
