What advice would you offer to aspiring male fashion influencers?
Keep at it! Beyoncé wasn’t built in a day lol. Stay committed to your craft. Be ready to go the extra mile. Be teachable and willing to learn. Don’t be discouraged when some doors are slammed in your face. Don’t be afraid of No’s because you will get a lot of those starting off. Collaborate with other influencers and exchange ideas. This has helped me get to where I am.
Describe your personal style?
I would say my style is versatile depending on the mood or occasion. One day you could see me dressed in a sharp looking suit and tie like I’m headed into a board room meeting or dressed down in ripped jeans and button down floral or animal prints shirt baring my chest. On some other days, I’m somewhere in between. I like to mix it up so you won’t be able to predicate where I’d wear next.
What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
These days I like to wear flamboyant colors to accentuate my dark skin tone and make a statement. I’m also starting to wear more and more hats because I just discovered they look great on me. Lastly my love for animal prints knows no bounds.
List 5 pieces every guy should have in their fashion collection.
Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
Master the art of color matching. This is key. You must know the colors that should and should not go together. We don’t want you out there dressed like a circus clown. Never wear oversized clothes, if they are too big, simply get them tailored to fit.
Describe the outfit that makes you feel most confident.
I am always in my A game whenever I wearing that well-tailored brightly colored suit with a nice tie and pocket square to match and wearing my shiny gold watch on one arm and my other accessories on the other. I am very big on accessories because they complete my look and they are like vitamins to fashion and as such, I throw caution to the winds when using them. I would finish off the look with a nice pair of double monks or brogues shoes depending on the look I’m going for. If you see me walk past, you would think I’m fresh off the plane haha.
Gym or Yoga?
How do you capture your content and what equipment do you use?
I use a Canon 6D DSLR camera and a 50mm f1.8 lens for all my pictures. iPhone photography won’t cut it so if you want to be taken seriously, you have to step up your game. I usually collaborate with other influencers and photographers and we create content together.
What inspired you to start blogging?
Just the need to show off my personal style and to teach men how to dress up, look nice, turn heads and make a lasting impression without breaking the bank or trading an arm or a leg for it.
What has been your most exciting moment since becoming an influencer?
Getting verified by Instagram was like a dream come true. I was literally bouncing off the walls. Also, partnering with some big brands that I have always wanted to work with is something to be grateful for.
