• RATHER AVANT- GARDE, IF YOU ASK ME .

    The idea of today’s post was borne out of a light hearted banter with friends about a Ghanaian male making waves on the Internet spotting a “shirt”, arguably a blouse (in the Ghanaian context).
    This man’s shirt has got some uncharacteristic features such as puff sleeves and ruffles on the chest. And this is what is bringing the house down and tickling even a 1000 more.
    As with any revolutionary idea, (Oh yes, I’m going there with you) there would be many (aka all those creasing up about this look) who might not see the vision. But I do, thank you very much!
    Whether it is a fashion statement,  something along the lines of

     “If women can wear trousers, then men can wear puffs and ruffles” 

    or that he is just starting a new trend, I’m all for it.
    If anything, his confidence is very inspiring.
    But guys, don’t tell me you haven’t really seen this look before. Just squint a bit and that’s an Elizabethan Gentleman standing right infront of you. Is it a pirates shirt? or perhaps the shirt of the 18th Century gentry? After all C18th is the era of Enlightenment.(term used in this context in the loose sense of the word)
    Hopefully you get his gist.
    And as the saying goes,  there’s nothing new under the sun.
    PS. If anyone knows who this great man is ,could you kindly let me know so that I can tag him appropriately.

      I sure wouldn't wear that. As to whether It's Elizabethan… There's a reason why that era It's past now
