I moved to the south-south early this year and one style I notice and love about their men is the etibo native wear.
Most of the men wear this on weekends; to work on Fridays, to church on Sundays and also to parties as aso-ebi .
The etibo native wear is most times made from a plain material that could be mainly cotton or a mix of cotton and polyester .
The etibo style to me is highly sophisticated and has a way of making men have a royal look especially when they add the walking stick to it.
Another accessory to this style is the fedora/pillbox hat (by the way I learnt the hat was inherited from the British slave masters during the slave trade), it makes the style complete for any outing.
Here are some samples of the etibo native wear from the exquisite peter okoye and lola omotayo’s traditional wedding in Lagos:

We at TAJ (The Aso-ebi Junkie) wish the okoyes a blissful married life and many more years together.
