Designer brands like Taibo Bacar, Gvllvnt, Suitability, and House of Nala are redefining menswear with their visionary creations.

These brands have managed to take traditional menswear and effortlessly flip it on its head, recreating it anew in a way that reflects the vibrant energy and diversity of African culture.

Their suiting, especially their blazers, have become a canvas for their artistic expression. They are skilfully blending their classic tailoring techniques with vibrant prints, fabrics and silhouettes resulting in blazers that exude both sophistication and cultural pride.

A well-crafted men's suit is the epitome of elegance, and every style conscious man (or woman) should be well-versed in its nuances.

The key to mastering the art of wearing blazers lies in the fit. Always opt for a blazer that skims the shoulders and nips at the waist, creating a flattering silhouette that accentuates your physique. From there, choose between single-breasted and double-breasted styles, each exuding its own distinctive charm.
