Today Ape to Gentleman bring you news of the latest editorial project from the enigmatic Street Etiquette duo, namely Messrs Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs.

Entitled ‘Sartorial Sounds’ the finished article is a photo shoot portraying a variety of looks, with each artist’s persona being reflected.
“Sartorial Sounds integrates both music and style, two elements embedded in every culture past and present. We think it’s important to remember that everyone is an artist in their own right. And it’s the life experiences we encounter that provoke what we splash on our own blank canvas. We assembled seven individuals to partake in this editorial. The finished product incorporates their individual talents such as spoken word, rapping, singing and tap.” – Joshua Kissi
