For the dapper men of Harlem, there is only one designer to go to and that's Bernard Oyama, native of Gabon, West Africa. The former banker, who's been profiled in the New York Times, offers a genteel look--a cultivated line of Egyptian cotton dress shirts, Mogador silk ties, and highly stylish wool blazers--for the fashionably-aware gentleman. Noah, one of my besties, dragged me to his flagship store on 137th and 7th in Harlem and I must say, I was impressed.
