The Congo Dandies: living in poverty and spending a fortune to look like a million dollars

“La Sape” is a unique movement based in Congo that unites fashion-conscious men who are ready to splurge money they don’t really have on designer clothes. Dressing in stark contrast with their surroundings, these elegant ambiance-makers become true local celebrities… but this fame comes at a price. The Republic of the Congo in Central Africa can’t boast of high standards of living. Yet, there are men here who are prepared to spend a fortune on designer suits. They call themselves “sapeurs” – members of the “La Sape” movement. “La Sape” comes from French and stands for “The Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People”. For its adherents, it’s all about style and elegance, the right combination of colours and textures, brand-names and the highest quality materials. They derive true joy from showing off their attire on the streets of Brazzaville – the country’s capital and the centre of the “La Sape” movement. Walking down dusty streets lined with clay houses, they turn heads and feel like kings. And there’s no price they won’t pay for this. In fact, behind the image of success these dandies project, there are often stories of significant financial troubles caused by their extravagant hobby. To afford the price tag of their designer clothes, “sapeurs” have to save, borrow and even steal money, sometimes bringing ruin to their families. But even the grim consequences of their indulgent dressing habits often don’t stop “sapeurs” from spending money they don’t really have. They are in constant competition with each other and investing in their image is more important to them than improving their living conditions. Dressing smartly becomes a true addiction that is very hard to conquer. However, some “sapeurs” do strive to find a balance between looking chic and being reasonable with their spending. They insist that the “La Sape” movement isn’t about designer suits but rather developing impeccable taste. They make an emphasis on learning to dress well but within one’s means. This way, style and elegance will demand fewer sacrifices from their devotees and will be accessible to more sophisticated men. SUBSCRIBE TO RTD Channel to get documentaries firsthand!

Sprezzatura Explained – DOs & DON’Ts – The Art Of Looking Effortless + How To Pull It Off

Learn even more about Sprezzatura here: Get to know the sprezzatura icon, Gianni Agnelli: SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Wool Challis Tie in Turquoise with Gray, Orange, Navy and Yellow Pattern - 2. Light Blue Veronica Persica Boutonniere - 3. Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Light Grey and Light Blue - First of all, let's define what sprezzatura is. It is an Italian term and meets as much as casual elegance that looks effortless and nonchalant. Even though it's not a term that was super popular 10 or 15 years ago, it actually has quite a bit of history. In fact, it was first used in Castiglione's book of the Courtier which is a classic of Italian Renaissance literature. The goal of sprezzatura was to teach noblemen on how to cultivate an elegant lifestyle while appearing natural and unrehearsed about it. As with many things, sprezzatura has evolved over time. In the last half a century, it has mostly become an idea of imperfection. One person that's very closely connected to sprezzatura is the Italian industrialist Gianni Agnelli. He obviously broke traditional style rules, for example, he wore his wristwatch on top of the shirt cuff rather than underneath. If you go to Pitti Uomo today, you'll see the majority of men will either have a tie that is tucked in or one blade especially the back blade is longer than the front. Agnelli really finds sprezzatura in a way that he cultivated what would otherwise look as a bold style error. The Dangers of Sprezzatura 1. It has its time and place First of all, recognize that sprezzatura is meant for specific situations: you can’t wear loafers without socks when attending the Queen’s Garden Party in Buckingham Palace. The same applies when you’re in court or climbing the corporate ladder. 2. Keep it low key It’s also possible to go too far and end up looking ridiculous and contrived, so restraint is still the name of the game.  Today, sprezzatura tends to look more like the flamboyant style of Agnelli’s grandson Lapo Elkann than Agnelli himself. 3. Try to be original Lastly, sprezzatura is accomplished best when one’s nonchalance is unique, graceful and original. Following the examples you see in photos of Pitti Uomo can, therefore, become its own kind of conformity, and people will know it. That being said, it’s fair to acknowledge that it is not easy to come up with a truly original take on sprezzatura these days; our best advice is to find something that appeals to you and wear it with confidence. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Dress Up When Others Don't & How To Deal With Haters or Negativity - Gentleman's Gazette

Learn more about how to deal with haters & negativity who call you gay because of the way you dress here: SHOP THE VIDEO: 1.Light Blue Linen Pocket Square with Burgundy Contrast Embroidery - 2. Silk Tie in Jacquard Burgundy Red with White Polka Dots - 3. Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Burgundy and light grey Fil d'Ecosse Cotton - If you like classic style, then wanting to dress up when others don't happen to you all the time. Recently the viewer Amir left a comment on our video, Things I Get the Most Compliments On. "Raphael, I've been upgrading my style. I used to wear graphic tees, ripped jeans and sneakers and now I wear untucked casual button-ups, dark wash jeans or chinos, and chukka boots. However, I still don't feel satisfied with my current style. The thing is that people around here never dress up. Is there anything wrong with dressing up all the time even to the most casual of occasions? I'm really scared of this step." Now here are the 7 tips I use specifically to deal with issues that arise from dressing well in everyday situations. One, whenever you dress appropriateness is a very important consideration. For example, at a wedding, you never want to out-dress the bride and the groom because it's their day. At the same time, if you go to a funeral, a burgundy or red flannel suit will simply detract from the event and it would be inappropriate. When there's a dress code indicated such as cocktail attire you should not wear black tie because that would be obviously overdressed. Two, if there isn't a dress code consider how much flexibility there is. For example, when you're on a plane you see people wearing sweatpants or a suit so whatever you feel comfortable with works. On the other hand, if you're in a business meeting and you're not the boss the dress code can be pretty much stipulated without being written down. In that case, consider the company culture. There's nothing worse than wearing a three-piece suit in a startup company that simply wears jeans and t-shirts all the time. It makes you look odd and stand out in a weird way. Three, dress to please yourself. Think of dressing as your hobby and it's something that you enjoy. It's about you and what you like to do not about others. Four, learn how to accept a compliment graciously because otherwise, you may come off like an arrogant prick. When you dress up more compliments will be coming your way and we did a video on how to accept it like a gentleman here. Five, it's very important to have a comeback ready. If you're asked why you're dressed up, have a few answers prepared that you can give right away so you don't have to engage in lengthy conversations, shut the conversation down and simply go about your way. By having an appropriate comeback you exude confidence most other people will just leave it at that and won't bother you again. Ideally, you shouldn't go down the rabbit hole of explaining. It's the same politics if you start explaining you're losing. Aggressive or negative people want to engage you in a fight, want to drag you down to their level, and then they beat you with experience so don't do that. The best comebacks are short and sweet. "What did you dress up for today?" "It's Thursday!" Or if you want to be snarky you could say something like "Adulthood." But again that may be seen as offensive. "Why you look so fancy?" "Why not?" "Why are you so well-dressed?" "Because I know how to." "Do you think you're better than us?" "No, dressing up is just my hobby." The sooner you'll accept that judgment will always be around the easier it gets to focus on what you truly want. Six, the single biggest secret to dressing up when others don't is to not care what others think of you. Personally, I'd say it comes very naturally to me and being on YouTube and being exposed and having that negativity around me just helped me to develop an even thicker skin. There's a good saying along the lines of "What other people think of you is none of your business" and I pretty much agree with that. Last but not the least, be authentic because that provides you with confidence and people who are confident are perceived in a much different way. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Check out Indochino's suits here:
Use the code JOBRIEN to get a made to measure suit for $379
Suit I'm wearing:

First and foremost, every guy should have at least 1 suit in their arsenal and that 1 suit needs to fit amazingly or else it looks like crap. Off the rack suits are made to fit a pre-existing body type that not a lot of us have, so you need to tailor it. Some off the rack suits can range upwards of $600 as well. Or you can go made to measure like INDOCHINO and send in your OWN measurements for them to use and to create you your own suit, for half the price and you can customize anything you want. I dont know about you but I'm getting the suit that fits ME rather than every other guy out there. Hope this video helped you get some ideas on what you want with a suit or if you like these suits to check out that link above.
