Soboye Menswear Collection

Soboye Menswear Collection is the debut men’s offering from the Designer, Fashion Stylist and SOBOYE boutique owner Samson Soboye. The collection is colorful, vibrant and striking and inspired by his Nigerian heritage and Modern Dandy’s. The collection was spring-boarded from his successful launch of SOBOYE shirt collection in 2012, now fully developed to include Jackets, Waistcoats, Trousers, Shorts, Sweatshirts and his unique Cardi Shirt.

Due to the nature of the Ankara used the collection is made in limited editions and according to the availability of particular Ankara designs. Classic shapes are a given the SOBOYE touch with the quirky pairing of different colour combinations.

The manufacturing is entirely out of London with the tailored shirts being made by Jermyn Street shirt makers and feature Mother-of-Pearl buttons and Collar shapes.
