When I met Kumar about a decade ago, he introduced me to the unique world of men's fashion. That initial arousal of my interest in this sub-discipline has grown and has been held ever since. Well, at the very least, I've been "sensitized" to it and can now spot (and smell!) a faux-pas from a mile away! And now, Kumar and myself are forming a dynamic duo (of sorts!) and together, we're endeavoring, to gently nudge and guide men, on to the path of sartorial "enlightenment."

Week Forty: Getting squeaky clean, metro-style!
Is soap really just a placebo? Whatever the case, like most people, we like our soap! Checked in at the boutique-y St-Paul Hotel this weekend during what has now become an extra feature to our trendy-restaurant-dinner-anniversary-celebration-tradition, Kumee brought his own soap from home, just in case the hotel's complimentary "shea butter" soap just wouldn't do. Soap-on-the-rope used to be that lame last minute gift given as a token gesture, well, at least up until Tom Ford launched his personal line of men's toiletries, that is. Perfumed with his own signature scent, he put as much thought into this exfoliating bar as you will have into giving this to the special sophisticated metro male in your life. Warning: has aphrodisiac properties:))))
