Pingback: Gentlemen Of Bacongo: The African Dandies | Selectism.com
These guys are truly men of elegance. All that funkiness in the midst of sufferation….I doff my hat to them guys. Being a Royal Dandy is a state of mind …money cannot buy it. All I’ll say is that they, keep on doing what they know best. Feeling funky.
I agreed with you Manuel ! There’s style are amazing and money cannot buy it !
Not all of it is french/belgian inspired after all africans have flair and a sense of couleur all on their own – they are simply using it in interpretation. I love their style !!! and you don’t have to mention things like having style “in the midst of war and abject poverty”….having a sense of style is not related to either of the issues and in many cases they are probably putting together used clothes etc similar to a person that would shop from a thrift store. Carry on ‘Gentlemen’ !! enjoy life and stay stylish !!
