Celebrating Black History Through Fashion - Swagger (The Estes Brothers)


I've decided to kick off this year's "Celebrating Black History Through Fashion" blog series with a picture I discovered last year.

This photo is dated in either the late 1920s or early 1930s and features four distinguished and dapper gentlemen. And the best part of it all? They're family! My great grandfather, "Papa Jacob" (second from the right), and his brothers define confidence and  true swagger. Although I never had the opportunity to meet any of them, this picture gives me a strong sense of pride and appreciation to be a descendant of such great men. 

No wonder I'm so into fashion. Clearly, it's in my genes...
