SA Party beaches where Faf's glorious swimsuit will fit right in

After the Bokke secured their monumental win against the English in the Rugby World Cup, the celebrations in the locker room were a sight to behold from beginning to end.

But one player stood out amongst the revelry for his patriotic choice of attire, that not only celebrated the win, but also greeted a humble Prince Harry - Faf de Klerk's South African flag swimsuit.

De Klerk is no stranger to going viral online, but this final act has stamped him into the online Hall of Fame - and for all the right reasons.

His swimsuit look could be taking SA's beaches by storm during this year's keDezemba, especially the big party beaches where De Klerk and the rest of the Bokke can let loose after winning us this much-deserved trophy. 

But where to get your own? The swimsuit really is proudly South African from Bean Bag the Brand, who are taking pre-orders for Christmas at the moment because "Faf broke the internet and depleted our stock!" according to their website.
