The juxtaposition between The Sapeurs (African gentlemen) and their surroundings leaves me speechless. These images depicting the lifestyle (and simply, style) of elite African males are really extraordinary. I wish I knew who the photographer was.

According to Mikolai from, The Sapeurs spend all of their time and money in order to maintain their designer, high-class looks. Dating back to the 1950s, it has become a subculture of hardcore modelling, dancing and grooming.
