Mr Erbil: The Kurdish Gents At The Forefront Of Men’s Fashion

With their tailored suits, artfully layered ensembles and ridiculously well-groomed beards, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the men of Mr Erbil are major players at New York Fashion Week. Instead, they’re a group of friends from the city of Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, who have parlayed their love of a fitted shirt and a pocket square into a successful Gentlemen’s Club-slash-social-media-influencer-fashion-movement. The Mr Erbil Instagram is full of sharp gents in a variety of finely crafted clothing. It’s making us feel very underdressed tbh:

Along with giving the Gents a reason to dress flawlessly, the club serves another purpose: it shifts perceptions about the country they call home. In a region that’s experienced a huge amount of conflict and suffering in recent years, people are still thriving – and looking good doing it – despite the challenges they’ve faced. Better yet, all of the clothes worn by the Mr Erbil gents are crafted by local tailors, which boosts the local economy and gives these businesses a platform to showcase their creations Even better yet, the men use their social media presence to empower Muslim women through their ‘Women’s Inspiration’ post each Thursday. It highlights women who have achieved success in areas like academia and art and lends its support to campaigns that work to promote women’s rights. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi5R4flBqJo/?taken-by=mr.erbil Occasionally, something reminds you of the positive power of social media, where important messages can be spread, visions fulfilled and all-around good vibes delivered to the rest of the globe. Mr Erbil is one of those things. Be sure to follow Mr Erbil on Instagram: @mr.erbil
