These elegant men called “Sapeurs” are part of the “SAPE” (Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes), a social movement in which men dress in the most elegant clothes. They are very proud of their style because they wear some really expensive clothes such as $500 designer suits!

The “SAPE” is perhaps the most peculiar movement in the Democratic Republic of the Congo because they combine the style and social revolution from the 20s, no wonder they have become so popular.
