Why we love Alexx?
Alex slays the tuxedo game by far! He loves his tuxedos and he is never afraid to express his fashion personality through them. He’s in tune with the different style of tuxedo and he rocks them perfectly well. He has his ways around formal outfits, he’s rarely wrong with a simple striped shirt tucked into a pair of trousers topped with a nice belt and a pair of moccasins or loafers.
2. Stylish black outfits.
Left to Alex, he will stop wearing black when a darker color is created! He has the flare to turn black to a great style piece which is aided by how his complexion synergizes well with black outfits. we love his style regardless of his preference for black.
3. African print.
Alexx is a firm believer in African prints; Which is fueled by his love for black heritage and culture. Who says a man can’t rock prints and be dapper at the same time?
