David Tendai is an Accra based menswear atelier bringing a unique brand of understated sartorial elegance to the world of African menswear.
DT designs and manufactures made-to-measure kaftans for individuals who value muted elegance over forceful flamboyance. Our creations are designed to capture the spirit of modern cosmopolitan Africa while staying true to the continent’s age old traditions of garment making.
Driven by the belief that the kaftan is the new suit, David Tendai seeks to manufacture pieces that embody the aspirations of African men the world over. The brand believes that luxury needn’t be inaccessible and strives to make pieces can seamlessly transition from a gourmet restaurant to a curbside food stand just like the modern African man.
David Tendai was birthed in September 2020, and takes its name from the quintessential Afropolitan sartorialist who inspired the brand.
