Yours Traditionally, Men

Nigeria is recognised as the hub of fun and celebration in Africa.

As you will see, there are different style approaches to follow, but the base material is kaftan. This traditional style is the most common among the lot and the go-to ensemble for most men. You can pair yours with pants alone or take your style up a notch with a sleeveless kaftan jacket for that extra touch.
