Sometimes i wonder what have become of our beloved country when the people them selves don't appreciate what they have.

Am a student studying for my masters program outside of Nigeria, before i travelled, i made all my clothes from Aba, you wont believe it from shirts to trousers, to suit.

Anytime i wear my clothes my classmates from over 13 countries keep asking me where did i buy them from, for sure i will say 9ja.

I went to a conference with my supervisor and i was putting on a suit, so he asked where did i bought the outfit from, i said its from Nigeria and made in Nigeria as well.

He made a comment that really touched me that day,"so good things come out from that country" and to be frank. when i was graduating he was pleading for me to run my phd program with him,

Please appreciate what you have,

What is wrong with buying made in Nigeria Cloths?

Are those China made cloths of any standard better what one Lateef or another Onyeka will sew at Oshodi.

To all of you oyibo made nonsense wait when I become minister of Finance. You will see these chinko cloths but will not be able to buy them because of Tax. we will not outlaw them but make them unattractive for you comfortable consumption

Some Nigerian tailors/designers are really doing a good job and they should be encouraged.

QUALITY is the watch word. If the clothes were well made, I would definitely buy.

I see some imported clothes and I wonder who on earth imported them.

Proudly Nigerian.

My shirts look as good as T.M Lewin made but the materials are imported from South Africa and sewn by my tailor in Tinubu,Lagos.

Recently,i was one of the groomsmen at my paddy's wedding.The guy had a Versace suit imported from Italy but i looked better in my ''Sewn in Ng'' suit.The guy was pissed that i was stealin' his day but i simply told him that his suit was N20,000 more expensive than mine.You should have seen the look on his face when i told him mine was sown in Lagos.Now he patronises my tailor more than me.

I've been sewin' my shirts and pants for two years now and there ain't no goin' back.

of course i would, why not?

if the quality and style is on point, then yes.

better yet if its traditional attire.

one question: all those fashion designers in nigeria, aren't their products made in Nigeria? or are they made abroad and shipped back to Nigeria?

i've always wondered this.

Most of those suits, shirts and trousers you see in Mandilas as imported were sowed in Aba. You must be an expert to differentiate them.

Don't be suprise to buy ABA made in the name of Imported.

For native wear, yes, I would most definitely buy Nigerian-made. Will be better cut and tailored than Nigerian attire sewn in the West.

Depends on the the quality (quality being subjective and not just the material) and style.
