Serge Ibaka's hometown of Brazzaville, Congo, is home to originality and positivity through the Sapeurs.

Serge Ibaka is one of the best dressed guys in the NBA. His Instagram account is filled with pictures of him in stylish clothes, scarves and hats and even his official website is entitled “avec classe,” which translates into an abundance of classy words.

Bottom line: Serge is a classy dude. Maybe this video below is where he gets it from.

Guinness put together an interesting look at the Sapeurs of Brazzaville, Congo – Ibaka’s hometown – in a mini-documentary that showcases the “society of elegant persons in the Congo.”

From the Guinness promo: Guinness follows the Sapeurs, whose way of life is a testament to the belief of putting more in, to get more out. Their life is not defined by occupation or wealth, but by respect, a moral code and an inspirational display of flair and creativity. This is demonstrated through their love of stylish dressing; but it is not the fabric or cost of the suit that counts, it is the worth of the man inside it.

Sounds like Serge.
