Not sure if this post should be called “Man Crush Sunday” or “Style Star of the Week.” Haha! I stumbled across Sunday’s Instagram page a few months ago when I realized he shot with a photographer I was interested in shooting with. After seeing his keen sense of style, I just had to have him featured on the blog. Keep reading and you’ll quickly see why.
Sunday Bamgbose, 24
Was born in America but claims Nigeria 100%.
Works full time as a Career Advancement Coach for a non-profit organization called “The Door”
How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as simple yet unique (I know it sound extra cliché). I don’t like to drag out things, however, when I dress up or down I find the simplest ways to stand out.
Who or what inspires your style?
A: My Pops played a large role. Growing up as a kid I always watched him tie his ties, iron his shirts and pants. He’d have me iron his clothes for him. I would watch my Pops get measured by tailors and thought it was cool.
What’s something you read about related to fashion recently, that you found interesting or thought-provoking?
A: In the November issue of GQ, I read something about embracing your tie bar and adding flavor to it. Now usually I am a detailed orientated man, but that’s something that completely went over my head. Shout out to GQ for putting me on.
If you had to wear one outfit for a month straight, what would it be and Why?
A: Definitely a navy blue pin striped double-breasted suit with brown double monk straps. As a man, you can never go wrong with a tailored fit.
What is your dream job?
A: My dream job is to work as an athletic trainer and train professional athletes.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
A: I love to work out. I absolutely like to play basketball. I also enjoying eating and reading.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
A: Some people don’t know I can act, and that I am a comedian.
Do you have a mantra you live by? If so, what is it?
A: Yes, I do. “Treat others the way you would want to be treated.” Integrity is everything to me, accountability as well.
Keep Up With Sunday
