Clothing of victims of the Congo: Sapeurs

It is interesting what the internet can bring us. We have found clothing that would be cool in the Congo. Too be honest, the clothing is pretty out there and we questioned why the congolese men were wearing the type of clothing they were wearing.

(Check that site out, that is where we got the information!)

It turns out that Sunday afternoons very much like this one, Africa rebels would walk by the Congo river with $1,000 suits and rebel without causing riots like in canadian hockey games.

This style in Congolese slang is called "La sape" which is a society of elegant people.

Spread the Word!
