Fashion / How To Style Isiagu As A Mafia Jacket by Xperience12: 9:04am On Oct 25, 2018
The importance of the Isiagu clothing in Igbo tradition cannot be overstated. Isiagu fabric is one of the most revered pieces of clothing among the Igbos. The word “isiagu” means “Head Of a Lion” and is reference to the lion head motif tiled across the fabric.

The Isiagu is used by the Igbo people of Nigeria for formal events. It is equivalent to the western tux or suit in its level of formalness. Usually reserved for (male) chiefs in the Igbo community, it is more widely used now across Igbo culture.

For today’s blogpost editorial, I decided to take the Isiagu clothing to a different fashion dimension. I’ve created this editorial in collaboration with an amazing Menswear Brand @bespokenigeria, and they indeed brought creativity to this by creating an Isiagu overcoat jacket, something out of the norm!



The approach was simple, create something urban out of the traditional cultural attire. It’s one thing to use the Isiagu fabric to tailor an overcoat jacket, but it’s another thing altogether to get the perfect fit and stand out styling right.

Though most times, choosing a fitted outfit is imperative, however when wearing the overcoat, a slightly bogus jacket is advised. This is due to the fact that at most instances, it could be worn as a fourth piece to a three Piece suit or a third piece to a two piece suit.

For an urban look, team your jacket with a pair of slim-cut wool or cotton trousers, could be patterned or stripped trousers like in these looks, a smart button-down plain shirt (white preferably to be on a safe side), a matching canvas and add a finishing touch with some accessories like a tie, brooch caps/hats, sunglasses etc.

For my style, I wore the Isiagu overcoat with a white cotton shirt, a stripped black trouser, a white sneakers and I had it accessorized with a multicolored tie, a brooch and a white facecap, paired with sunglasses. I held a patterned dufflebag to add life to the style.



Though it could look like an awkward dressing, there is nothing like styling something different and unique. When styled correctly, it could top the list of show-stopping urban wear options.

lionness:
APC should properly investigate Peter Obi. The money he stole as a governor is worth billions which he used in creating his many businesses, especially that NEXT in Abuja. That guy is a bigger thief than his boss Athiefu. If the EFCC does it's due diligence, Obi criminal background check will be the longest and dirtiest thing ever brought to life. That guy looted Anambra dry and if it wasn't for Obiano, that state would still look like a pig pen.

Fashion / Wadrobe Essentials – The Waistcoat by Xperience12: 1:05am On Oct 08, 2018
Hi guys.

Happy Sunday to you al! How are you doing? Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Today’s topic is clear—it’s about waistcoats.


A waistcoat is an item of clothing that is traditionally a third of the classic three piece suit. Derived from a French word, it is the sleeveless upper-body garment. It is usually worn over a dress shirtand necktie and below a coat as a part of most men’s formal wear. It is also sported as the third piece in the traditional three-piece male lounge suit.

A waistcoat has a full vertical opening in the front, which fastens with buttons or snaps. Both single-breasted and double-breastedwaistcoats exist, regardless of the formality of dress, but single-breasted ones are more common.

Popularly known in the past as “Monkey Jacket” (some people might still refer to it as that), the waistcoat is one of the pieces of men’s clothing that has endured the diversity of fashion over the years and have evolved into new trends.

The waistcoat is once again fashionable for men. A well-tailored waistcoat will bring a true touch of class to any outfit. However, a waistcoat can also be difficult to wear correctly. It takes balls to pull it off magnificently well.

However on today’s blogpost, I’d be sharing some tips to follow when wearing a waist coat:—

1. Get the Fit Right on a Waistcoat

The first and most important thing is fit. Like any tailored piece a waistcoat will only ever look good if it fits. You should ensure your waistcoat fits well; therefore, a tailored waistcoat is to be recommended. The waistcoat should lie flat against your body, with the sides and back cut slightly higher, sit flat across the shoulders, with nice, high arms holes that don’t gape. The back is generally cut slightly higher than the front.

2. Not too short or too long

It’s also important to avoid wearing a waistcoat that is too long or short in length. Ideally, the bottom of your waistcoat should end halfway, or just over, your belt line. It should be long enough to cover the waist so the shirt underneath doesn’t extend outside.


3. Avoid overly bright colours

If you can, avoid Wesley overly bright colours. The more subtle the colour, the more it will complement the rest of your outfit. Therefore, the trick is to stick with more traditional and classic colours, rather than try and be too garish. You could succeed in looking fab in it, but then you risk looking “Fashion-Drowsy” in it if not styled properly.

4. Accessories are spices

Accessories are like spices. When added to food in their right portion, they can sweeten the meal. However when too much, they can damage the food’s taste. Accessories are like that. The can make your waistcoat “wow” or “nah”. Accessorizing with small articles of clothing like ties, bracelets, glasses, brooches/Lapel pins or wrist watches is a clever choice. When it is not too much, it helps spice up the outfit.



WHAT I WORE

So I wore a grey plaid double-breasted waistcoat with a black Stripped pants. I accessorized the waistcoat with a stylish chain brooch, a grey patterned tie, a skull bracelet, and a gold chain watch. Finally, I wore and a red patent-suede tassel loafers shoe.

Some of you are really brainless.
You were the ones who started the digression, so why blame me?
Did the girls complain to you.
VVF is not as a result of a young girls getting married it is a as a result of lack of health facilities to take care of such healthy complications.
There are states in the USA presently were young girls as old as 13 years get married and have children successfully without problems.

You can accuse the North of this, but not so in Saudi Arabia where people still get married early.
please, look for another lie.

As old as 13? What are u saying, 13 is very very young. Would u sleep with a 13 years old??

Printerscanner:
Did Buhari do his declaration at Eagle Square when PDP was in power? If Yes, then I will escort Kwakwaso to Eagle Square tomorrow morning. However, if Buhari did not do his declaration at Eagle square throughout the 16 wasted years of PDP, then if Kwakwaso moves near Eagle Square, he and his unfortunate supporters will be shot with AK-47, survivors will be re-shot with AK-49 by SARS Officers who are still very angry at their disbandment.

October 18, 2014 which was a Wednesday, Buhari made his declaration in the Eagle Square. Jonathan didn’t stop him. Please confirm and get back so we know how you and your team would escort Kwankwaso to Eagle Square

Buhari Is A Man Of Integrity, He Has No Business Inducing His Supporters. He Didn't Even Attempt Such In 2015 Before He Assumed Office, Why Would He Resort Cheaply Into It When He's President??
Maybe You Should Ask Qtns As To Why Pdp Polithiefcians Who Couldnt Adapt To Changes Had To Re-camp Into The Mother Ocean Of Corruption. The Answer Is Simple The Foundation Upon Which APC Is Built Detests Amassing Of Public Funds And Abhoring Of Criminal Elements.

But APC offered free oil wells to decampers to remain in APC

Religion / Daddy Freeze Replies Leke Adeboye Over Shade by Xperience12: 5:10pm On Jul 27, 2018
Earlier, Leke Adeboye, son of the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has taken a swipe at controversial media personality, Daddy Freeze.

He shared a news photo of RCCG donating 7 schools in Ibadan and took a swipe at Freeze. He wrote;

Im sure they will not see this. Maybe they need to sell their wristwatches for glasses or come for a laying on of hands for healing of eyes and mind

See thread: https://www.nairaland.com/4642028/leke-adeboye-shades-daddy-freeze

Well, DaddyFreeze took to his Instagram to reply him. He wrote:
Dear Leke,
No need to sell my watches, I have already bought glasses and all I see is enterprise, false humility, private jets, lies, business centres, more lies, Pentecostal franchising, poverty, even more lies, pastor idolizing, spiritual harlotry and still more lies....... It’s all I see... maybe I need stronger glasses to see the tiny little giving, easily dwarfed by the large, expensive airplanes, monumental harvests and continuous streams of income from some of the worlds poorest people....
