When you hear “masculinity” and “fashion,” what tends to come to mind are images of mens’ magazines and typical cis-het dapper styles like multi-piece suits, skinny ties, and loafer liners. But here at AFROPUNK, we’re all about pushing envelopes, experimenting with clothing, and creating something exquisite. And we know you love pushing the envelope, too. This time we’re focusing on the ways in which men choose to present themselves in a safe space like AFROPUNK.

“This jacket was gifted to me, actually, by a friend in Senegal. I don’t know, I just wanted to wear colors. My sister’s here in yellow, so I’ve got a pop of color.” Darnell L. Moore @mooredarnell
