Zola Msizi is a model and actor from Port Elizabeth, living in Cape Town, South Africa. He is a brand ambassador for South Africa’s cutting-edge formal wear brand C squared. Whenever I see him it is always a vibe, the PE confidence always oozing out and we are on some “Ithini iBuda?” every time we greet each other.

When we’re young we dream, we dream out loud and at the age of 18 most of us stop dreaming, out loud that is, and if we don’t, the people around us don’t understand why we’re still dreaming. One man who never stopped dreaming is Siya Beyile, who as early as in his high school years dreamt of starting a creative agency. Fast forward to today and that dream has manifested itself in the form of The Threaded Man.
Recently met up with Boombap enthusiast, streetwear lover and homie, Luthando Mankayi. I met this guy through Sj Stevens, they were working together at Topman whilst I was at Cotton On, back in the retail days not to long ago. I really admired his streetwear style, he always had these sick jackets. Never the less, we agreed when we return from Initiation School, we’d do something for the upcoming winter and this is what happened.
