as many as there are in the states.

 

there are good dressers.. and then there are fashion victims. The jacket-to-tight-with-emblazoned-emblem-eurotrash-wannabe types... and lately they has been the I-didn't-care-for-rick-owens-leather-jackets-and-skirts-until-kanye-wore-them-and-now-i-wear-them-in-90-degree-weather.

 

 

 

Still there is your share of well dressed people.

 

Even with the well dressed folks I still kind of stand out considering the fact that my style and fabric choices  are wholly American. Most Nigerians tend to channel the British.

It's crazy to think how much celebrities, ones the music infustry mainly have influence on people style in the sense that in the 90s it was all about baggy jeans and stuff but only until recently mainly in the past 5-8 years you see people accepting fashion as more widely accepted.

Re synth bag, I just meant to ask if it was as huge as it looks (ideal for travelling) or was my mind playing tricks on me (ideal for everyday)
I see no problem in having a travel bag/luggage and an everyday bag. I also dont mind having bags on bags on bags devil.gif

You do colors extremely well, btw. Love your last fit.

I don t like the extreme bagginess of those pants, bene. But maybe I m not yohji enough.

Today, not exactly original but there's a limit as to what I can get away with for work...



and to explain choice of footwear colour:



Christy's
Nigel Cabourn
Universal Works
Topman (tie)
H&M
Tricker's

Bene, that yohji suit looks really bad to me.  I think you should consider the possibility that much of the yohji stuff that is cheap on ebay is cheap for a reason...?

I want to visit Nigeria now.

 

MoK, the coat and trousers are a little too similar in tone for me there. Or maybe it's the green/grey pairing that doesn't work for me -- I feel like I'd like the coat with tan trousers and I'd like those trousers with a navy coat.

Or maybe people just have different tastes to others...?

"But taste is subjective!" is a terrible retort to my saying that something doesn't look good, regardless of whether I'm actually right or not...
