Hello beautiful ones! I trust everyone is doing well and had a lovely weekend. I had a pretty chilled weekend, I worked most of Saturday and then I went home to my bed. The weather in Johannesburg has been pretty wet and gloomy, I am starting to think winter came early this year. However, I am not letting the weather stop me, I am happy and enjoying life! So it’s Monday, we all know what that means? It is Male Feature day, let’s meet our feature for the week.

Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself

The birth name is Reuben Modiba, known as Swav in the fabric and styling industry. What part do I play and why am I important ? Well I’m a CSquared celebrity stylist for one, secondly an image consultant and wardrobe auditor.


Ah nice! How would you describe your style? 

I’d say my personal style is eclectic due to a wide array of creative vision depending on season and trend. I mean one Monday you catch me in a navy pin stripped double breasted suit and the next I’m in a serious sapologie contrast or even sports lux.

What or who inspires or influences your style?

I draw inspiration from a well-dressed plate of food, rustic furniture and nature’s way of combining colours. If you don’t believe me visit your nearest garden and see magic in colour, simple!


The one thing every man should have….

*sigh* well that’s debatable!

A wide array of different colored/cuff white shirts (4mininum) however I’d say a pair of good quality tussle loafers has never done any man wrong. I mean be it shorts, jeans or carrot cut trousers they add the needed heat.

What are some of your closet favourites?

My dark brown Aldo tussle loafers are life! But my ultimate faves are a green Carducci knit tie and a Csquared green/navy polka dotted pocket square combo. I must admit I have exhausted these, they like a high note at the end of a jazz symphony. I think I should actually give them away what do you think?

Reuben 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.
