The Ocacia Dashiki is a return to the classic African American clothes which iconized in the 60's and 70's of the African American revolution. It echoes and era of African pride, looking to Africa as the original home of the Diaspora and wearing that culture without apology.  In redesigning the classic dashiki of the 60's we had one additional design consideration, to transform it from a casual top to a formal one, while retaining all that gave it its identity.

We asked ourselves what was necessary to make it a premium occasion top, and went about adding everything we know to be premium, starting with high end West African zigzag embroidery, formal cuffs (long sleeve option only).


 

Did you know:The Kingdom of Aksum (also known as the Kingdom of Axum, or the Aksumite Empire) was an ancient kingdom located in present-day Eritrea and the Tigray Region of Ethiopia. Ruled by the Aksumites, it existed from approximately 100 AD to 940 AD. The polity was centered in the city of Axum. It grew from the proto-Aksumite Iron Age period around the 4th century BC to achieve prominence by the 1st century AD, and became a major player on the commercial route between the Roman Empire and Ancient India. The Aksumite rulers facilitated trade by minting their own Aksumite currency, with the state establishing its hegemony over the declining Kingdom of Kush. It also regularly entered the politics of the kingdoms on the Arabian Peninsula, and eventually extended its rule over the region with the conquest of the Himyarite Kingdom. The Persian Prophet Mani (died 274 AD) regarded Axum as one of the four great powers of his time, alongside Persia, Rome, and China.

Men's shirts size guide - how to choose the right size shirt

A Tailored fit

1 Check your shoulders-- you do not want the shirt draping beyond that bone at the edge of your shoulder.
2. Check your sleeve, at most the cuff should terminate 2" beyond that bone on your wrist(that is the max) the minimum should be to that bone with your elbow bent
3. The arms should not be baggie, the body should not be baggy showing excess fabric. 
4. The cut length should cover your zip
5. Ideally a Chinese collar should fit snug around your neck. It should not open up.

To get a better fit, let us know your shoulder to shoulder, your chest, your preferred length , your sleeve length (per our site).

How to measure

To choose the correct size for you, measure your body as follows:

1. Chest
Measure around the fullest part, place the tape close under the arms and make sure the tape is flat across the back. It is best to add 1-2 inches to get a loose fit. It is safer a little loose than too tight. Most of our clothes come with 20mm seams for adjusting.
