Dashiki KMT 101  Kemetic is a return to the classic dashiki 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.This 2016 version is featuring a rare and premium wax print. The KMT and the Khufu are the top of the line of our Dashiki series. 

Ocacia Haute Couture Range

In redesigning the classic dashiki of the 60's we had one addition 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), back yoke, and a welt or outside pocket (only the long sleeve can have cuffs)

Matches with the ladies version

Color Option: With each color selection the embroidery colors will be changed to match the color selected. Use your imagination and take a chance. Actually African accent print varies.

  1. Absolutely Beautiful Review by Selena Rashid

    What an amazing purchase. My first ever African purchase. Got it for my husband for a Nigerian wedding and he got more attention than the groom. The quality is 2nd to none. I now understand why it is priced above the average African shirt online. (Posted on 10/11/2016)

  2. Perfection Review by Alex Holder

    This top is perfect as perfect can get. This is my first purchase and I certainly do not buy clothes on the internet--esp expensive clothes. But when I saw it, I said i had to have it. And I took a chance. The rope thing is very very nice, you cannot see it as nice in the photos but when it arrives in the post you can instantly appreciate it. Very premium, and I got it with cuffs. Best purchase this year. (Posted on 6/22/2016)

  3. AMAZING!!!!!!!! Review by Son of Rah

    How amazing? Well after I got this one in the post after waiting 3 weeks I went and bought another one, the cream version. Waiting for that in the post now. (Posted on 3/3/2016)

For 100% certainty please select your size and also send your measurements.(You can insert them as notes during the check out process). We cannot accept returns due to size errors. African clothes sometimes look better big, you can order a size up if you feel you are borderline.

WE ONLY ACCEPT TAILOR MEASURMENTS i.e. neck size, length, shoulders per international tailors standards. We cannot accept made up measurments like from my nose to my upper collar bone is 25 inches. If your measurements are confusing we will at our disregard them and go with stock measutments.

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.
