Players such as Khama Billiat, Thembinkosi Lorch and Andile Mpisane represent the hyperbeasts. People who are obsessed with stacking logos or recognizable brands in their outfits.
Tau and Lepasa on the other hand prefer to style in garments that aren't instantly recognizable. It may come across as bland by others but it's refreshing to see well-known, high-earning stars opt for a more minimalist sense of style.
Lepasa's style is definitely more formal to Tau's looks. The young striker's style is consistently hailed as 'clean' by fellow footballers, while Tau aims for my cosy outfits, it's comfort over everything for the ex-Sundowns star.
Both players are certainly subscribers of the 'Clean Guy Aesthetic', with difference in execution but similar colour pallets.
