It’s a beautiful day in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo — country 188! While there are many interesting things about this city, nothing is more fascinating than the SAPEURS!
“La Sape” is a cultural movement among Congolese men, who dress themselves as dandies and put great emphasis on their style and physical appearance. They wear the fanciest suits, ties, hats, shoes and accessories all around town!
At first, I thought it was just a hobby or a passion, and it certainly is both of those things, but sapology is more of a cultural movement among the (mostly) poor men on the streets of Brazzaville, and it’s really cool to learn about!
