Siya Beyile Interview with Independent Media lifestyle writer Nontando Mposo

How has The Threaded Man portal evolved since it was launched?

Siya Beyile: The Threaded Man is a success story on its own, but for every successful blog, there are dozens that fail. When The Threaded Man launched, the idea was that it was just going to be a portal/blog for men’s fashion. Since then it has grown into a full agency, into Africa’s largest men’s fashion and lifestyle portal. Through our styling and consulting divisions, over the past months we have worked on campaigns for big brands such as H&M, Levi’s, Stuttafords, American Swiss, Titan watches and Adidas, to name a few.

You are clearly a creative person, is there anyone or anything that inspires you?

Siya Beyile: It is funny because I don’t consider myself a creative person… I mean I failed at fashion school, haha!
