Lately i have been feeling all green hence the birth of this blog post, my love for anything Ankara by now isn’t no news judging from the fact that i have almost every fashion item made in Ankara, the beauty and richness of the fabric gets my ideology of presenting a stylish African man.

It has been one h*ll of ride this past few week hence my disappearance from the blogosphere, like i always like to remind y’all that THESTYLETRAIN is always here to keep the style train moving. On a rather happy Friday i decided to dress up and show up like the African Style Star that i am, but the devil struck; have you seen a grown man driving for over two hours and crying? (story for another day) the moral of the story is that “are we broken? of course yes, “do we break? HELL NO.
Believe me when i say Kigali is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Africa, apart from the fact that my hotel had one of the most amazing views you can ever imagine overlooking the whole city (popularly called the city of many hills) every corner of the city definitely emulates beauty. As a travel blogger that i am, i decided to visit to Visit the Akagera Park which happens to be the second largest wildlife park in the whole Africa named after the Akagera River which shares borders with Tanzania.
Dressing up a tee shirt might come across as being tedious but there is really a simple trick to converting your tee shirt into a night outfit. From pairing with denim jackets, blazers, waist coat, for me I decided to pair with this Ankara print jacket I have had and there you have it the birth of this style post.
Let’s go way back to the early 90s when fashion was about big necklaces and dark round shades, from the likes of Biggie, Tupac, Puff Daddy and the rest that helped reshape the hiphop game. Oversized clothing gives me so much because that’s my style area, I am at that phase where i am trying to proof to people that vintage doesn’t mean sloppy.
March was one h*ll of a month; having to shuttle between several job deadlines, my vintage store (@VintageMenNG) having its own outdoor sales event, meetings and of course personal issues that arise daily. Hence, my little disappearance from the blogosphere but not to worry TheStyleTrain is always here.
Nothing comes to mind other than throwing my Ankara inspired look on, I have had two separate fabrics lying in my closet for some time now. My local tailor looks at me when I say please just use this part as the body and the other part sleeves and wonders this guy and his irregular way of dressing, that led to the birth of this style post by yours truly.
