Ode to Nelson Mandela

The news of Nelson Mandela's recent passing on December 5th sent shock waves throughout the world which in itself is a testament to how great a man he was. With today being his memorial service held in Soweto South Africa. It got me really intrigued by his life and what he stood for, those of you who read my blog know that I am really big on inspiration and thus feel obliged to pay some form of tribute to one of the most humble and inspiring men the world has ever known. The word 'gentleman' gets used rather frequently in regards to menswear and Nelson Mandela was not only a true gentleman but also a gentle soul. Here is my favourite image of a young 'Madiba' (as he was known by fellow South Africans) adoring a very suave double breasted suit, which just goes to further perpetuate the notion that style lasts forever as will Mandela's legacy of compassion! Omiri and a Dream salutes you Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela! R.I.P
