Freetown is just emerging from it’s annual meteorological Armageddon, the infamous “7 day rain”. It’s not an easy time to remain well dressed, the temptation is to just wack on a wet suit and be done with it. But if there’s one person who’s style never falters, it’s Fashpack poster boy and Priest with Attitude, Reverend Emmanuel Benson Palmer.
The Reverend manages to smile through those raindrops as he shows us his professional uniform, a distinguished white cloak with quilted detail at the front. The Reverend is not only a sartorial master but a well known healer in the Freetown Community.
Once again, no dowdy raincoat or wellington boots here. As rain gauges across Freetown overflow, The Reverend decides upon a full matchy three piece, another little number he picked up from Ghana.
