    Posted by on Nov 24th, 2015

    Ok so you should know by now that Black Friday is happening this Friday 27 November. It is traditionally a US thing on the first Friday after Thanksgiving and is regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season where retailers open early and offer promotions at considerable discounts. Well South Africans don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but an increasing number of shops have jumped on the Black Friday sales and are offering some huge savings. Everyone loves a good deal so who cares. Get your festive season on and stop complaining.

    I scouted around and found the following for now. Just click them to go to the corresponding website.

    Ok you should all know who Maps Maponyane is hey…the actor, model and South Africa’s best-dressed man title holder. The man just drips style. Well Maps has collaborated with leading online fashion retailer Spree.co.za to bring you his first fashion label, The Maps X Spree Collection, a unique privately developed label. Each item in the collection is Maps’ interpretation of a classic menswear summer staple and you’d do well to add a few to your wardrobe.


    Maps had the following to say about the new collection. “I wanted to be able to develop a label that interprets elements of my own sense of style in an accessible way and that talks to those that have shown interest and are following my journey: this was my main aim with the collaboration. Spree gave me a unique opportunity of bringing menswear fashion that I love and think will be really great this summer to men around the country.”

    Here’s a video as well.
