SAPEUR

I love Japanese TV show, which a comedian visits Japanese who lives in overseas. 

Last time, he went to Congo! What I only knew about Congo was it’s African country and became indispent from France. So national language is French.

In the show, he communicated with local people and they looked so elegant in suits. Where this came from? They still admir French culture. SAPEUR stands for Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes in Frech and it means “Fasionable, elegant gentleman”. They had the impression to French people during colony.  

  
After independence, civil war occurred and many people were killed. They were asked to sell suits and had a gun but they refused because they believed that gentleman never had a gun and kill people. Some of them buried their suits under the ground and ran away. Being SAPEUR was a proof of peace for them. 

They don’t get enough salary to buy suits such Christian Dior, Prada, Louis Vitton. But they wear them even though they can’t get by. Many people love to be fasionista but who ever think about proof of piece by fashion?
