Bismark Adomako is a stylist by day, an occasional barber by night, and always a perfect gentleman

Bismark Adomako needs only two words to describe his style: classic gentleman. The menswear stylist, who moonlights as a barber one day a week, is partial to crisp, dandy suits, but has no qualms with pairing floral button-downs with coral shorts and open-toed sandals. One day, about five years ago, he realized he was following primarily older Italian men on Instagram and decided to channel their ­sprezzatura himself. Adomako’s interest in fashion ballooned after he was nominated most stylish at his high school prom for wearing a blue striped suit with a baby blue shirt and gold tie. “I can’t lie, I was styled by my older sister, Patricia,” he says. Like many social media influencers, his Instagram is aggressively hashtagged with phrases like #dapperlydone, #beardgamestrong and #blackmenwithbeards. His impeccable style has led to partnerships with suit designer Eaden Myles and hat brand Brims Official. But the quality that makes him most like a classic gentleman: “That would be my personality,” he says.
