I’m not a fan of wearing black suits simply because it is a safe choice to wear and I am more about standing out in bright colors. Still searching for that yellow suit .
Although, some occasions necessitate you wearing black. Over the weekend, I received the sad news that my childhood friend had passed away. Someone I was close to and shared almost my entire childhood with. We had a lot of good memories and what hurts most is that we can’t make more great memories together. You are one person I looked to when I needed a friend to joke with or talk about stuff. I will miss how you used to joke that you’d come to my work place looking for me to serve you, and how we laughed on the day you actually showed up . You were a happy guy. Always smiling and never showed your sad side.
During this photo shoot I kept thinking of you whilst trying to look good for the camera, but I know where you are you saying “huku cheza chini .” As you said, it’s not bye, but see you soon. So here I am saying “see you soon my friend.”
Rest In Peace My Friend, My Fam.

Tips:Avoid floral or heavily printed ties for a funeral. Keep it plain and dark in colour. I chose floral because Kevin was a fun guy and loved to look fashionable.
When wearing a black suit keep the accessories minimal and simple.
When dressing for a funeral your 1st choice of suit should be black. If not, you can go with charcoal gray or navy blue.
Here is a funeral etiquette video:
