Creativity, style, class and tradition are traits that herald a successful brand. As one of Africa’s leading fashion brands for men, Captain Carter Mens Closet has outdoored its first line of hand-crafted bespoke shoes named ‘Osebor’.
Bearing its name from the native Ashanti name for Tiger, known as a symbol of strength, dynamism and passion, the Creative Director and CEO of Captain Carter Mens Closet, Yaw Sarpong-KumanKuma stated that as manners makes a man, so does ‘Osebor’ tell of his story. Captain Carter Mens Closet since it’s establishment has had many international affiliations even though from Ghana. It sells more in the United States and Europe on pre-order basis clothing many musicians, sportsmen and dignitaries.
According to Yaw, The main mandate is to sell the symbolism of Ghanaian tradition into the diaspora through fashion, hence titling his clothing line with certain traditional names like ‘Tete Ntama’ (literally meaning cloth from old times), ‘Onyina’ (a spiritual tree in the tropical forest), ‘Asanka’ (an earthing wear bowl usually used to serve food for Kings) etc.
Touching more on his new shoe brand, he said, ”though the ‘Osebor’ screams luxury, its simplicity in design and its comfort is a must have for every man due to its quality and difference. Furthermore he confirmed that every single purchase comes with a complimentary belt”.
We welcome ‘Osebor’ as the new addition to Ghana’s creative and fashion market and to Captain Carter Mens Closet, we say AYEKOO!
