This week's Style Q&A is with the ever-stylish Kojo Baffoe. Editor of the men’s business and lifestyle magazine, DESTINY Man, Kojo Baffoe is an editor, writer, poet and entrepreneur with origins in Ghana and Germany, raised in Lesotho, and based in Johannesburg. NH: What is your favourite item of clothing? KB: It’s constantly changing and rarely a single item. Probably my brown brogues, pair of Adidas Rio EQT Running Support ’93 “Modern City” Rio and a pair of grey chinos I got at H.E. By Mango. Also waistcoats. I have a thing for waistcoats and am building a collection. NH: What is the oldest item of clothing you own? KB: Tend to get rid of old stuff. Probably some t-shirts and football tops for Liverpool, Germany & Ghana NH: Who is your favourite fashion designer? KB: Don’t have a lot of designer stuff but Tom Ford is up there. Walking through the Tom Ford store on Rodeo Drive, I knew that one day I’ll be back to clean up. NH: What was your favourite item of clothing as child? KB: T-shirts. Had a collection from every place my father travelled to and he travelled a lot. Plus my North Star sneakers. NH: How many suits do you own? KB: 6/7 but need to get them altered NH: How often do you wear a tie? KB: 3/4 times a week. When I turned 40, I decided I’d wear more ties. Have bought more in the last two years than the 20 years before that. NH: Favourite accessory? (wrist band, watch, pocket square, tie, etc etc) KB: Pocket watch and skull ring NH: How often do you shop for clothing? KB: Very haphazard Kojo-Baffoe-Style2 NH: Do you shop online for clothes and where? KB: Have bought from Superbalist but so far generally get the odd thing here and there that I can’t get here. NH: What’s the last thing you bought online? KB: Public Enemy hoodie and, yes, Nic socks. NH: Most expensive fashion item you’ve ever purchased? KB: Pair of sneakers and a suit NH: Your least favourite thing to wear? KB: Shorts. Rarely wear those NH: When was the last time you did the washing yourself and hung the clothes? KB: Been a while. Have hung up clothes this year NH: What kind of a shopper are you? Dash and leave or meander and browse? KB: Dash and leave. Haven’t got the patience. Except when travelling. Then I meander and browse NH: Does anyone help you shop or dress? KB: The missus buys a lot of my stuff, especially shirts. She’ll bring a couple home for me to choose from and return the ones I don’t want. And she’ll give me the once over when going out. NH: Where do you look for style or fashion inspiration? KB: I follow a lot of men’s fashion and style blogs, instagram accounts, etc but tend to go with what feels comfortable for me as well as fits my aesthetic.

NH: Winter of summer styles? KB: Winter NH: Sneakers or slops? KB: Sneakers NH: Boxers or briefs? KB: Boxers NH: Button up or Tshirt? KB: Button up NH: Denims or chinos? KB: Both although I only started wearing chinos regularly in last two years. Lived in denim before that – in +35 degrees and –10 degrees NH: Shirts: Tucked in or left out? KB: Tucked in. In the last 3 years. Was a 'left out' person for years You can find Kojo online here: Website: http://kojobaffoe.com/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/kojobaffoe Instagram: http://instagram.com/kojobaffoe
