Here’s something you may not know that’s all over the net. Kodjoe co-founded the company, World of Alfa, alongside his brother Patrick. Alfa is the face behind custom made, men’s suits at an affordable price.

It specializes in giving a luxury and tailored feel to it without breaking your pockets. In support of that, here’s what Kodjoe told Men’s Health about the Alfa line:

We’ve figured out a way to make custom suits affordable for everyone and it’s changed the game. Suits are just $200. Shipping is just $30. It’s all custom hand-made. You design all of this yourself. You pick from every single detail. Now people who’ve never had the chance to wear custom, are exposed to the luxury of a custom suit. When they put it on they’re like ‘Oh my god, this is such a big difference!

In addition to what his company stands for, Kojoe does have his own pointers about style via Lulyhypermarket:

On wearing suits:

Kodjoe suggests a tailored suit created specifically for your body type. Don’t give-in on style, loose fitting or costs. Your tastes belong to you and whatever that investment requires then do so

On choosing a suit jacket:

Kodjoe advises that a jacket with more than two buttons shouldn’t be among the deciding pile. If all else fails, rock a vest, tighten a tad bit in the back and call it a day

On trying to make a fashion statement with mix-match concepts:

Kodjoe isn’t an advocate for what some call “fashion” and others call downright tacky. Mixing and matching doesn’t always make a statement. Sometimes, it’s okay to be bold or even safe with solid colors. Sure, you can choose one or two patterns, but don’t let it go past that combo of choice. SN: You don’t need to be looking like Boo Boo the Fool to the next power…or something mathematically

On choosing a suit:

Go for a men’s fitted suit that will help bring out your best features. Details such as a slimmer fit or shorter hemline can make the world of a difference

In case you’re wondering, Alfa wasn’t made for just men but for women as well. The inspiration behind Alfa’s creation was that Kodjoe wanted to to make a luxury style that people could afford.
