Online Extra: Man Of Style Wale Soluade
A gentleman by all definitions, Wale Soluade perfectly mixes classic business-wear with his signature flair of color-coordinated separates. Both a professional in the business world as the Corporate Inclusion and Diversity Manager at Commerce Bank, and an expert in the mens fashion realm—his blog, A Curated Man, has led to collaborations with both GQ and Details Magazine. Soluade was a sure pick for our November feature.
