Have you noticed the turn men’s fashion is taking these days? It’s wonderful the way men are starting to pay attention to their respective appearances, even if some still wear rubbish and dwell on the size of their bank accounts and other things but that’s another story entirely. Even Nigerian men (those not leaving in the “behind”), are beginning to impress me these days with their mode of dressing. I see photo’s like this and I want to run back home to find husband (not that I’m materialistic though);

Uti Nwanchwukwu in a mix of brights and contrasting blazer.

Just look at this man, not as Uti this time but as a bare man. First my attention is on the fact that he didn’t do the usual one tone pants and blazer and tie matching and he dared to use bright colors and pulled it off without looking like the joker!

The Dapper Man

While it is perfectly okay and sleek to look like this(Picture below).  Uti was spontaneous with his outfit. He decided to switch things up a bit and trust me he looks GOOD which is the reason why I am posting this in the first place.  I’ll be taking you through the world of Men’s fashion, how it has evolved and how our Nigerian men should go with the flow, although some of them are doing that already but the word needs to spread further.

Unlike women, men need to try extra hard when it comes to fashion. Men’s clothes and accessories (quality ones) are very expensive, and even so, they have to keep purchasing these apparels and things to have impressive appearances because appearance does counts a lot.  Apart from the expenses, men have to be extremely careful when choosing what to wear. It doesn’t come to most men like it does to most women how to combine different outfits and accessories.  It’s not that they cannot figure it out but most men do not just have time to be trying on clothes a hundred times before finding the right outfits and some on the other hand are egotistic or know nothing about fashion except for the good old casual jeans/Polos and formal suits.


Color is another big problem, women can be extremely experimental with colors and still look cute but men have to be so careful in order not to end up making a fool of themselves by being clown look-alikes. This lack of time or fashion knowledge is the reason why some men who can afford it hire people to pick out clothes for them. If you’re a male reader, I’m sure you’re already thinking, “Fashion is such stress, why can’t I just have multiple T’s and Jeans”. But before you close this, while multiple jeans and T’s are very awesome,  having different types of T’s and jeans, in different styles and colors with accessories to improve the look is the point, I am trying to make.

I bet most of you think it’s just the boot cut, straight and skinny jeans that exist and that only round necks, v-necks and Polos are the only T’s that exist. Well you’re wrong, but it’s okay,  that’s why I’m here and you don’t even have to pay me for all the useful fashion tutorial I’ll be giving.  🙂

I’ll be helping the  average Nigerian dude/man/guy who knows not the first thing about fashion to organise his wardrobe via my write-ups.  I will write about different male outfits, trends, spontaneity in men’s fashion and even places in Nigeria where you can get certain clothing and accessories.  If you have questions, the comment box is right there.  Before you know it you will be looking like this;

I’ll be taking you on a tour around the Men’s fashion world and you’d LOVE IT!

PS: You might have to throw some of the things you love in your closet away, and I promise it will definitely be for the best! Chat with y’all soon. :*
