• Dear Metrosexuals and other Readers, It has been that season. Too many parties, too much champagne and sweets, and, of course, there was all that business of gifts and visits, phone-calls and thank-you’s. Now that the whirlwind is past, nobody can blame you for feeling a little stale. But what if you were whisked off <... >

  • Nowadays it’s not uncommon to see men doing work to maintain and improve their outward appearance. The traditional view of the unkempt, out-of-shape and uncaring male has recently been replaced by his more trim, pampered and fashion conscious brother. This new “metro-sexual” male is more desirable, more trendy, and more likely to enjoy the pampered <... >

  • My dear Metrosexuals, Metrosexual-Wannabees, and Girls scheming to metrosexualise their men-folk, Shakespeare said “what’s in a name? That which we call a rose” blah, blah, blah… Forgive my flippant way of quoting; for in spite of my disagreement with the above statement, the bard is actually very close to my heart. To give you an <... >

  • What better way to escape the Republican National Convention than a three-day retreat to Canyon Ranch spa in the heart of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains? Nestled among the trees of scenic Lenox, Massachusetts, “the Ranch,” as it is called, was a bustling haven for many New Yorkers during my brief but thoroughly relaxing time there. <... >

  • Indeed, I had a wonderful story lined up regarding the art of shaving, but unfortunately my contacts failed to follow up. But this is a blessing in disguise since I can now use this as an opportunity to vent my frustrations, as well as offer up my humble opinions, regarding fashion dos and mostly don’ts <... >

  • Photographs by John Penwarden* (*except for the product shot, which was provided graciously by John Allan’s) Answer: Head to the salon where industry experts can design a style that states success during the day, but screams show-stopping rockability by night. So when Jim Spengler, drummer for the New York-based rock band Acquiesce (www.acquiesce.com), came to <... >

  • It was love at first sight – or should I say touch. They have literally thought of anything and everything the male body could possibly need. Naturally, I’m talking about Zirh, recent winner of the Best Grooming Range award from FHM magazine’s prestigious 2003 Grooming Awards. Now there are quite a few companies getting notoriety <... >

  • Whether you like it or not, men are taking a more active role in wedding planning today. Long gone are the days when the groom’s job was just to show up at the altar. I myself am getting married this September (fanfare for me…. “thank you, thank you”), and thus far I have had a <... >

  • It seems like everyone today is obsessing over their teeth. The average consumer is literally bombarded with teeth whitening strips to bleach to “magic” whitening gum and toothpastes to that stupid commercial where the girl is smiling so blatantly in front of her friends with practically radioactive-whitish blue teeth. Even past issues of this beauty <... >
