His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I named among the 10 most stylish men the world has known

Haile Selassie I, Ethiopia's late emperor has been named among the 10 most stylish men the world has known by Jeremy Langmead, Editor-in-Chief of men's fashion retail site Mr Porter.

You may recall that TIME magazine recently named Haile Selassie as one of the Top 25 Political Icons in history and now Haile Selassie is recognized to be stylish as well.

His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie was the Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974. In fact, his full title was His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah and Elect of God. He was also, at the time of his reign, the most bemedalled ruler in the world. Befitting for someone who could trace his ancestry back to King Solomon, Selassie could certainly rock up a regal look or two. My obsession with him began at the age of 12 when I would spend maths classes designing uniforms for him and his bodyguards. Sad, but true

What’s the point of being stylish while your subjects had no clothes on their back. Although the monarchs of the past are part of our history and we should embrace them for some of the positive things they did, let us not forget the fact that they were brutal unresponsive leaders.

Emye Menelik built Ethiopia. Ababa Janhoy introduced her to the world. Ababa Janhoy did not play the ethnic game. Ababa Janhoy freed Africa.

Duce Zenawi and his ethnic is dismantling my Ethiopia.

Bull-sheet; this guy should be remembered for the famous famine that put Ethiopia in the wrong side of history as hungry nation. He also needs to be remembered for oppressing peasants, denying millions of poor people access to education, looting Ethiopian people’s wealth, and so on.
Being Stylish is irrelevant based on the facts.

There is nothing to be proud about this guy he was the pride of himself everything he did he did for himself and so was every other leader Ethiopia has had. Ethiopians have suffered beyond imagination people have lost to many loved ones because of their {leaders} actions or lack of action.None are worthy of praise not while millions died from starvation just think of the children during the famines. We don’t need haile sellsae and his likes to be proud were naturally made proud.

What good did it do to him? He was stylish to the taste of fashion designers while millions of the people in Ethiopia lived in absolute poverty at the time which culminated in famine that caused his downfall.

Our king had done a lot from 1930-1974. To understand what he has done first how was Ethiopia befroe 1930 and after until 1974. Thanks to you tube, the pictures i have seen Ethiopians in the kings time look better than now. At least they looked well fed. As to the schools, he had not only opened many schools but he also introduced schools. He introduced western civilization to Ethiopia. He opened Ethiopian air lines, Ethiopian shipping lines, made Ethiopian athletics member of IOL, kept Ethiopian integrity by his diplomacy, opened African union office in addis, opened university, hospitals, accepted the afar king as king while He is the king of kings (diplomacy in its best) while mengistu tried to kill the kings, meless with eplf killed all oppositions of afars during 1991-93 to silence the voice of afars during the ’slavery’-'freedom’ funny referendum, ethiopia won african cup during his regime, his policemen did not use live bullets like mengistu and meless. And all these were done 37 years ago by Ethiopians standard. When he was removed from power there was no blood shade caused by his greed for power. He only asked them if they know what they were up to. As human beings he had also his short comings but what have those who replaced him done? If they have done better than him then we could not have plan our budjet hopping one third is coming from aid, 2,5millions have nothing to eat, we don’t sell our land for foreigners, etc.

‘1 The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art form everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4 The Lord on high is mightier than the the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, for ever.’ Psalm 93
‘1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate HIM flee before HIM.
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as the wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before HIM.’ Psalm 68
Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
“Spiritual power is the eternal guide, in this life and the life after, for man ranks supreme among all creatures. Led forward by spiritual power, man can reach the summit destined for him by the Great Creator.
In Your Grace is vested the responsibility for the contribution of the Ethiopian Church, for its part, towards giving the remedy for, and the spiritual comfort to, the wounds caused by the evil in the world. Moreover, in particular, the duty is yours for giving guidance to the Ethiopian people for their benefit in their terrestrial as well celestial lives.
We earnestly hope that God grant you strength and His Grace to help you discharge the heavy duties that you shoulder.’page 631-2, Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, Elect of God, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, only man found worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof. Christos Jesus in thy new name.
Praise JAH!
Egziabhear y mas gan!
Long Live the Constitutional Monarchy!
Long Live the Kebra Negast!
Long Live the Fetha Nagast!
Fire burn down the alien imposed federation star of secession
Fire burn down babylon
Rise with the Lion of Judah!
Long Live the King!
Long Live Independent Ethiopia!

Style,Substance,Subtle freedom fighter for the whole of Africa….etc. “His place in History is assured…."-JFK.
Shame some endowed with a very low IQ of his countrymen still try to undermine what he has achieved.ETHIOSHAME- I d`nt blame your brain size,you obviously inherited it-as His Majesties desire for education to all did not reach the rock you were under in!
