Leather and lace and gold – oh my!

By Benjamen Judd   We love a solid success story. Especially when it comes to the creative industries where often it’s a matter of who you know (or screwed) as opposed to what talents you have.   Brisbane-based independent label, House of Cards, is one such success that resulted from honed skills, creative ingenuity, and […]

Horse rings


By Benjamen Judd If you have ever seen Karl Lagerfeld get ready you would have noticed that he is unable to leave the house without selecting a ring or three for every finger, a necklace, some bracelets, a cuff, some earrings, and several other trinkets for body-parts left unseen.   We like his style. However, […]

lonely-hearts-clube TOBY JONES


By Benjamen Judd It is not often that we come across a jewellery range that is not only visually engaging and pleasing to look at but is also completely original. So when we discovered Toby Jones and his latest collection to say we were in a small state of bliss would be an understatement. After […]

Men desperate for a full moustache are heading to Turkey to undergo facial hair transplants. The procedure is a booming industry for plastic surgeons thanks to the increase of celebrities sporting a ‘stache. The operation, called follicle hair extraction, entails doctors removing follicles of hair from other parts of the body and implanting on the […]

Secret South


By  Benjamen Judd We are fond of a cult label. Particularly those mercurial ones that are not afraid to evolve into bigger and better things. Such as Sydney-based label the-designers-formerly-known-as Secret Squirrel. Who are now the designers known as Secret South.   The move to change their name reflects the evolving style and ethos of […]

Leonard Street


By Benjamen Judd Many an intrepid Antipodean who has spent some time travelling the globe has commented on the way Melbourne resembles the European aesthetic. In particular, the grey, grey city of London. So it comes as no surprise to find that Melbourne-based designer, Amanda McCarthy, modelled and named her clothing line after a thriving […]

Runway to real life – how to wear ruffles

Whether delicate or dramatic, statement or subtle, ruffles are the key adornment this season. Seen cascading down dresses at Peter Pilotto, decorating shirts at Chloé and creating a peplum on sporty tops at Hussein Chalayan, it’s a detail that adds modern finesse. While considered a flamboyant detail, ruffles can also be elegant and easy to integrate […]

Weddig Hat Etiquette

Wedding Hat Etiquette for the Modern Man

To wear a hat, or not to wear a hat? Nowadays men don’t grow up with the same customs as their fathers and grandfathers, and formal hats are no longer commonplace. But they can make great fashion statements for forward-thinking men, as well as working brilliantly with certain themes such as country or vintage. They […]
