For many, style is much deeper than articles of clothing; it’s a statement of identity. Black men have a unique relationship with fashion, one that can be traced all the way back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Monica L. Miller, the author of Slaves to Fashion: Black Dandyism and the Styling of Black Diasporic Identity, spoke with Tell Me More’s Michel Martin about the past, present and future of black men’s fashion.

Miller, an associate professor of English at Barnard College, explains that African-American men have used style as a way to challenge stereotypes about who they are. “Sometimes the well-dressed black man coming down the street is asking you to look and think.”

Victor Holliday, associate producer of on-air fundraising at NPR and one of the resident kings of style, tells Martin that he learned about the importance of fashion at an early age. “When I was 5 years old, I knew exactly how I was going to look,” he says. “And that was the year I got my first trench coat and my top hat.”

Holliday’s style icon is his father, who taught him that the main object of dressing up is winning respect. “Because as you present yourself seriously, people tend to take you seriously.”

Holliday is one of the men featured in Tell Me More’s Kings of Style slideshow.

  1. KRISHNAISLAM Says:

    NUMBER OF GOD.
    255559165 – 25928 – 666 = SUN

    Bahaullah – Sun & 45341 – 5 – 512165 = Moon

    152515 = Star

    Once people see and learn that all the major religions are built from the concepts of the Sun, Moon and stars they will begin to be able to see the truth for what it really is. And not something that is totally made up and made to be real by people who have something more underhanded in mind. All this has already been revealed in the bible. The God of the bible has been refered to as Orion in the bible. But we are quick to throw this type of information away in exchange for what the preacher has told us. Which goes back to my point that this book is nothing more than a copy of all the religions and spiritualities that predates it. The name Orion was taken from the Egyptian God Osiris….lol When it all comes down it still goes back to Africa.

    O ye Suns and Stars of my Religions Protect My President with my Protection Prayers From the Writings that was sent Down from above.

    O ye Suns and Stars of My Religions make Peace on the Earth for with War the Tears from the Moon shall be dried up by the Sun and Water shall not fall from Heaven on your Lands.

    O ye Suns and Stars of My Religions “All Religion is “ONE” and came from the same source”.

    O ye Suns and Stars of Religions Wage not Wars in ISLAM nor to protect none of the Messengers Philosophy, but leave each Man and Nation to their own understanding even those who worship Idols and call themselves “ATHEIST” for in the Twinkling of an eye their Spirit shall leave their bodies and their bodies shall go to the graves never to return and their Spirit shall stand before me.

    O ye Suns and Stars of Religion I created thee Rich why make thy self Poor.

    O ye Suns and Stars of Religion only engage in Tithing and collection that would be use for Creating Housing and Education to the Poor. The collection of Tithing to Support Religious Institutions is forbidden for you can gather in your Homes to Prayer and Transform all those Mosque and Churches into Health Centres, Schools and Universities.

    O ye Suns and Stars of Religion your some of your African Ancestors left this Earth never being able to read and write for both their language and Alphabeths in their Mother tongue were taken away from them. Have mercy on the illiterate and teach them orally and with Videos for the Prophet Muhammad was an illiterate.

    O ye Suns and Daughters of Religion make not your Diplomas Degrees and Phd’s exalt you above each other but make among you great men in Agriculture and Crafts for without these Knowledge Education cannot create Wealth but instead Slavery.

    Nothing that is Manufactured on Earth must go to a Dump Sites but instead Design Manufacturing Plants that would recycle these Products and Create New Ones.

    Make the Planting of Trees a Daily Occupation on all Lands in the United States Of Africa and when you Plan your Developments Place your Trees Layouts on the Site Plans so Generations after you would follow your Tradition and Culture.

    And Protect All Water Courses and Do not Create New Ones.

    Do not Develop More than 331/3% of the Lands in any State or Country for Buildings.

    I AM THE light of this world.

    I AM THAT I AM.
