It's a first on Afri-love – underwear! And not just any kind of underwear but a line of premium boxer shorts for the gentlemen who are oft-neglected when it comes to posts on this here blog. Introducing President For Life. The brainchild of Egya Appiah, a Brooklyn-based self-described "corporate lawyer by day and merchant by night". Limited edition, handmade in Ghana by old-school master tailors, with cotton sourced from one of Ghana's oldest and most renowned companies. Sure to create a pleasant surprise with their vibrant colours and prints!
You know how I'm particular about presentation – I think President for Life has it down pat. Including how each pair is delivered in a shiny gold box, reminiscent of an ingot of gold – packaging that's worthy of the regal brand image.
As for the name? A playful poke at the likes of Uncle Bob (in my opinion of course).
