Black men with style 

[pics stolen from all over the internets]




I love when grown men dress like grown men




..and it doesn’t necessarily have to include a button up or collar, necktie or suit jacket.




Y’all have it so easy-much easier than some of you make it. With a little effort, prep time and age appropriate, well-fitted clothing, you can look like a million bucks. And it should be fun and feel good! Don’t be afraid to throw in some color + texture.




Above all, confidence is key. [And it’s hot.]




“Style has little to do with clothing; it’s a way of living, of being.”




I included a lot of visuals with some variety to help dispel the influx of dresses and skirts showing up in menswear. There is no reason for a MAN to be rockin tunics or leggings either. This gender bending is not fashionable to me AT ALL and, instead, is just another means of emasculation to confuse our impressionable young boys and girls.

Men, young and old, can simply wear men’s pants and shirts, sweaters and coats in many many ways and still look like confident, trailblazing individuals with impeccable taste.

Clothing is a great tool to express yourself; dressing well is a form of good manners + it introduces you before you even say a word-projecting your level of self-love and self-respect. I see a very well dressed man and there’s an air of mystère-I wonder what he does? I wonder where he’s going? My late grandma used to always say dress your best because you never know who you’ll run into. And that’s quite true, but you should dress well for you and how you want to present yourself to the world.

Black men, I appreciate you. I’m inspired by your inherent style and admire your effortless sex appeal.

    Hi Kelly, your like button is missing. I like men with style too. It shows a certain confidence.

      Thank you, Leslie. I see that, along with the share buttons, but I haven’t changed my settings so it must be an error on wp’s part.

      As always, thank you for reading.

        I was having trouble with that too and so were a lot of other people. I think WP was making some changes and they always seem to muck things up in the process.
