WASHINGTON, DC -- Street Beat...Tailored and Traditional, Kenilworth Avenue, NE



Owing to his slender physique, I love how he has gone for a more form-fitting presentation with his traditional ware (i.e., agbada) thus exposing the intricacies of the lace material and the tailoring. The agbada is usually worn with a very flowing, wide-sleeved robe that functions more for show than for ease of wear. We see here he's gone for the latter. The shoes are an added love!

Can I add, a man that's not afraid to wear floral in the daytime (or night)and still look manly gets mad respect in my book.
