Hello beautiful ones! How is everyone doing this lovely afternoon? It has been raining on this side of town and I am happy but I honestly wish I was still in bed lol. I hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend was work as usual and then church on Sunday which I always look forward to. I went to a Carol service in the yesterday evening and it was amazing, I was reminded that I am the reason for the season, just like you. I love Christmas season!
Well it’s Monday again and we love Mondays, yes we do. Let’s meet out male feature for the week.
Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself
My name is Alino, Alain (only) if you can pronounce it lol. I was born in Congo but a part of me also stems from Angola. I moved to South Africa with my family when I was about five years old so my initial memories of Congo were a bit blurred, but since moving to SA, I’ve been back to Congo quite a few times.
Moving onto the next question, how would you describe your style?
My style depends on my mood, the day and the occasion, but I’ll wear whatever as long as it’s a slim fit lol. I won’t lie though, I’m a sucker for name brands. That’s the Congolese part of me shining bright. Suits are my favorite. The dream is to buy a decent tailored suit a day, every day for a year lol. On other days, I’m just a jean and a t-shirt type of guy. I’m pretty much open when it comes to clothing, the most pertinent thing for me is the fit. I guess I like to make the clothes and not the other way around.
What or who inspires or influences your style?
I’d say the foundation of my influence of being well dressed came from my dad and a few of my uncles. Growing up, there would be an event or some sort of coming together every weekend, and all that meant was an occasion for us to dress up! Recently though “mensfashionpost” on insta has a real kick to it that I enjoy and take tips from. My Paps has always had a very classy sense of style. He’d dress well, be well groomed and he’d always smell good, three things I don’t take for granted.
The one thing every man should have…..
A well groomed, soft, patch-less beard! Beards are life!
What are some of your closet favorites?
Lol I struggled with this one, but here it goes: I like V-neck t-shirts. In fact, I only wear V-neck t-shirts matched with blue jeans. It’s literally what I commonly wear. But my favorite surprisingly are these cream white shorts I bought from YDE. If there’s something I’d wear everyday it would be those. They’re classy enough to be worn with a shirt and casual enough to wear with a t-shirt. So multi purposeful.
Alain, thanks for taking time out to answer my questions and for agreeing to be part of this. I really appreciate it. Keep scrolling for more pics.
