BN Pick Your Fave - Banky W & Lynxxx - BN Style - August 2014 - 01
Good morning BellaNaijarians, we hope you all had a great night.

On this edition of BN Pick Your Fave, we are taking on two eligible bachelors in the music industry rocking similar sartorial style at the same event.

It’s R&B crooner Banky W and rapper Lynxxx. They both wore a grey blazer with black shawl lapels and black pants at DJ Jimmy Jatt‘s 25th celebration at the InterContinental Hotel, Lagos on Sunday 17th August 2014.

See how they wore it.

    Forget the suit! I go with Banky….just cos he’s not wearing sunglasses indoors!

      Exactly. Someone clearly has a great mind.

      August 19, 2014 at 12:23 pm

      Thanks dear…Lynxx got the fit and all that but he failed this exam with the sunglasses and cheap broach!!! Our stars really need to learn on appropriate dress sense…if you are going formal, then take that sartorial dressing to the limit and if going casual, go all the way abeg!!!

    Lynxx is fitter, no doubt (YUM!!!), but over all, Banky walks away with this one.

    Banky W definitely wore it better! Too much going on with Lynxxx’s attire! That Chanel brooch/clip is a no-no! He looks good though!

    Banky W


    August 19, 2014 at 9:04 am

    Banky W all the way, the blazer fits him better; The Chanel brooch, sunglasses is borderline tacky and his blazer is a touch too tight…the lapel should lay flat on his chest. Nice Chesticles though! 😉

      Borderline? Pimp style if you ask me. Banky was dapper

  30. A!

    August 19, 2014 at 9:57 am

    Lynxxx simply because Banky’s blazer and pants don’t fit properly. The hem on the trouser needs to be shorter and the blazer needs to be more fitted. Looks like something his dad dashed him.

      Thank you, I was actually waiting for someone to point it out. Lynxx wore it better.

    August 19, 2014 at 10:03 am

    so Lynx wants the suit to be tight by force, that he buttoned it in such an awkward way. was going to give it to him but i switch… the award goes to my favourite bald head

    My boyfriend Lynx of course

  37. LOL

    August 19, 2014 at 11:04 am

    The question is not who is better looking which is clearly Lynxx as baldness is an evil that steals both men and women’s’s who wore it better.
    Banky is very sophisticated, and subtle, the black buttons, the black pearl earrings, the amount of shirt cuff showing underneath the blazer..perhaps the sides could be taken in a little or perhaps that was the look he was going for. He looks relaxed like he can breathe and he is not hiding his eyes from strangers!! Just look out how ruched the blazer is on Lynxx’s arms…on closer look…untidy..uncomfortable perhaps?

    Between the lapel pin (chanel pin = wrong choice), the sun glasses (tacky), wrist watch (leather strap, slim bezel, no chronograph required) and pimp rings, Lynx is poorly dressed. There’s more to formal dressing than looking hot.
    Banky’s on point.

    All this broach tlk, abeg since when did fashion have rules? If the “Assesorie” looks good (in which in my eyes it does) then he is free to rock it how he sees fit! Who made any of us keyboard warriors fashion judges abeg? Bikko leave story and enjoy better picture of fine men!

    This is very easy. Banky wins this one hands down. As stated previously by other readers, I can not stand to see anyone wearing sunglasses indoors. So Lynxx lost points there. Secondly, that broach is just awful. Nigerians need to learn that sometimes less is more. We do not always have to show how many pieces of jewelry or how loud are watches and accessories are. We end up looking at those things instead of focusing on the person wearing it. Lets say it together, LESS IS MORE…lol

    I have to agree the broach did take away some points from Lynxx but the fit is better on him.
