My Want List

Fuhgeddabout eight maids a milking and buy Ryan Wuest prime menswear instead

Ryan Wuest is a senior menswear buyer at Superbalist and has been around for almost a year now – enough time to cement a reputation for having an exemplary grasp of modern casual with careful attention to detail in his own dressing. Think print tees, bombers, Stan Smiths and tailored joggers, topped off with his trademark Oliver Peoples spectacles.

He’s also one of our go-to fashion guys: dude can spit bars when it comes to what’s a la mode. As a buyer, he’s on the apex of trends and has a formidable knowledge and understanding of both popular menswear brands and up-and-comers, too.

Ryan spent time in the retail world as the former owner of Prime and the cult-favourite Mooks’ store in Rosebank, Joburg before that. For Northern Suburbs youths-in-the-know that made him pretty popular because, for a few years, Mooks was grailed in those parts.

These are his festive-season retail desires. If you like Superbalist’s menswear selection he’s to thank, at least in part – so why not show the man some love and grab him something from his want list?

Danish design perfection from Skagen! Watch maketh the man as they say, or don’t say but should. A premium leather strap with clean,vintage face, this is an amazing timepiece that adds sophistication to your look.
