Every man deserves to be stylish, from the man in a white collar job to the man in a blue collar job. Concentrating on the everyday man, here are five style essentials for the ‘typical bus conductor’.
Recently, a windscreen washer, Abdulahi Olatoyan, who dressed in a suit and a bowtie was discovered and featured on CNN and his life was transformed. In lieu of that, here are the basic pieces that a Nigerian bus conductor needs to be effective at his job, while standing out stylishly:
The bus conductor is a runner. They are constantly moving, so to mix style and reality, a good pair of slim or straight cut denim pants will be ideal. Denim doesn’t have to be washed all the time and can be worn over and over without wearing out.
Plain dark colored tee:
Bus conductors are constantly working under the hot sun. To keep things cool and simple, a plain short sleeve crew neck t-shirt will be great to pair with the denim pants and are inexpensive. In addition, get them in dark colors in case of grime and stains.
Plastic water proof watch:
It’s good to look professional no matter what you do and watches are a mark of class. Since they would be running around with the potential to scratch surfaces and such, I would advise a wristwatch that can resist the rain and won’t break or smash.
This is the last piece in the puzzle. The trade mark of the Nigerian bus conductor is running. There is nothing more appropriate for runners than running shoes but in this case more fashionable sneakers since we are trying to achieve a more presentable effect.
What not to wear ever:
Leather lace up shoes:
The point of being presentable is not to wear things just because they look nice, you have to dress the part. Thus, wearing lace up leather shoes that are inappropriate for running or don’t do well in the rain are always a bad idea for the bus conductor.
