THE BEST DRESSED (MALE)

THISDAY Style - - COVER -

A bro­cade tux can just be as ex­cit­ing as a velvet one. Ebuka looks im­pec­ca­bly sar­to­rial in this tuxedo. He never fails to bring his A game to ev­ery oc­ca­sion. To a good eye, this look is im­pec­ca­ble.

Yoruba an­gel or what? Ice­berg Slim is the per­fect African gentle­man is this newly styled white tra­di­tional Ag­bada that stops at the knee. The pants are also tapered ac­cord­ing to the style dic­tates of to­day. Matched with a pair of suede brown loafers, and the Mo­hi­can hair­style, Slim cer­tainly stands out… for good rea­son.

The deep green velvet dou­ble­breasted suit with the black satin lapel is a win­ner and with match­ing velvet shoes, a real cincher. Though he opted for a tie in­stead of a bowtie, he still looks sharp.

A blue suit may not be as ex­cit­ing as the browns or greens, but IK cer­tainly upped the ante with his bright or­ange waist­coat not to men­tion the colour­ful tie to match. What’s not to love about his rich combo of col­ors es­pe­cially when he re­mains unim­peach­ably el­e­gant.

COVER For a while now the go-to item to make a red-car­pet state­ment is a per­fectly cut velvet jacket. His white shirt and black bow tie are a per­fect mix but what is most ex­cit­ing about his at­tire is the green velvet strip on his pants. Des­mond Eliot knows this and the re­sults are spec­tac­u­lar.

Denola puts the G in gen­tle man in this flo­ral suit with the black silk lapel, black shirt and black tie which stood out on the red car­pet to land him a spot on our best dressed list. It sits so well on him, it looks like he was born in it.

Some­times, be­ing OTT brings the big­gest im­pact to an out­fit. But who can carry off this mul­ti­coloured flo­ral suit bet­ter than Uti? He wears it well. A per­fect fit to boot.

With solid fash­ion choices like this, Cobhams stands out look­ing sup­per dap­per in this velvet black tuxedo with a touch of gold. His white bowtie and black beret is a nice lit­tle twist.

Noble is amongst the rare breed of men who can pull off just about ev­ery­thing he wears and this time, it is a navy blue velvet blazer with a hat and blue round glasses to pol­ish off his look.

Al­pha male, al­pha blue? Though some men with­out IK’s swag­ger might not be able to carry off this pais­ley aqua blue tuxedo, IK looks like he just stepped out of a mag­a­zine.
