The Men of Men’s Health Thailand

The Men of Men’s Health Thailand

This is a good catch and this is a good batch. Men’s Health should be commended for assemblying Thailand’s most sizzling b-oysters. You choose one, and then later on you scratch your head because other candidates are deserving as well. Sometimes you even think why not make them all win. But a contest lose its attraction, if people behind the proceedings develops c0ld feet in singling out the best from a group og best-looking men. One has to be picked … no matter what. So despite this bevy of stars … somebody has to be called the WINNER! Let’s say amen to that.

Mitsubishi Grandis

Only the obscurity of the badge stands between this and a place at the top table at the seven-seat MPV party. Looks great, is terrific to drive and packs a VW diesel.

Comfort

The downside to the Grandis’s agility is a certain stiffness in the ride. There’s also a fair bit of vibration and tyre noise at speed which makes long distances harder work than they should be in something this big.

Performance
There are two engines to choose from, neither of which is a sure fire winner. Both petrol and diesel take around 11 seconds to see off 60mph, but the slightly noisy diesel at least can provide dramatically superior fuel economy.

Cool

In the inherently uncool world of the large MPV the Grandis at least looks the part. And the fact that it’s half-decent to drive gives it another edge over the usual mumsy fair out there.

Quality
Bold, swoopy interior design can’t quite hide the fact that some of the plastics are a bit cheap. The diesel engine is sourced from Volkswagen though, so that should be very strong.

Handling
You’d be forgiven for thinking we were having you on, but the Grandis actually drives really well. It sits lower than most MPVs, meaning it doesn’t roll much, and the steering is sharp and fairly communicative.

Practicality
This is what it all boils down to with MPVs, and the Grandis isn’t to be found wanting. A proper seven-seat configuration that folds and concertinas and all sorts. It’s not the biggest or easiest to use, but it’s right up there.

Running costs
If you take the Renault Grand Scenic as the mid-size MPV benchmark then the Grandis fairs well on initial purchase price. It might not hold its value like some of the more desirable cars in this segment though, so you could lose out in the long run.

Sack suits

Sack suits for man

Men’s suits are no longer just about the skinny-boy cut, and while our men’s suit article (above) offers up advice a modern, slim shilouette there are different schools of thought on men’s suiting for Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2010. Largely led by Ralph Lauren, but also spotted amongst other collections is the sack suit. A relaxed cut with classic details, you can find out more by following the previous link.

In reinterpreting the sack suit Ralph Lauren are both playing to, and bucking, current men’s suit trends. While releasing the suits in a two-buttoned tweed is on the money, the cut of a sack suit isn’t a natural fit with the modern male silhouette – the modern suit, in traditional cloths or otherwise, favours the arguably more flattering drape and Continental suit cuts.

The Ralph Lauren label isn’t, of course, the first to try to revitalise the look: Michael Kors tried the same for Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2009 on a Mad Men inspired catwalk (below). The results were varied, and the problems of the sack suit cut obvious.

What is a sack suit?
The name gives it away. A sack suit is a largely unshaped cut of suit. Though not literally like a sack, it features the same natural shoulders of the drape cut, but is devoid of any front darting. The front darting results in a suit that is hard to marry with the hourglass or V shaped cut preferred by most men. And despite being a classic, a quick check of my Mad Men DVDs reveals that the sack suit has even been abandoned by Don Draper for a drape cut come season two of the series.

Of course, in saying that it’s hard to marry the sack suit with a style preferred by the modern gent, I need to also point out that it’s not impossible given some clever tailoring. The pictures Ralph Lauren have released (top and bottom) would indicate that they may have achieved just this, but there’s nothing to say that they simply haven’t pegged the suits and sportscoats to imply a slender cut in their look book; aficionados of the Ralph Lauren labels will know that this is common in both Blue Label and Purple Label look books.

As for their explanation of the styling, for their Autumn / Fall 2010 collection Polo Ralph Lauren are keeping the undarted front but updating the overall cut from the classic:

The new sack suit “does away with darts and shoulder construction, but it’s shorter length and two buttons keep it current.”

It’s likely that, in keeping with their American styling, the suits and sportscoats in the sack cut will also feature a single vent at the rear, as opposed to the double, British style venting also found in men’s tailoring.
