All his suits, despite their different colours, always match with his phone covers and belt. He makes sure he's wearing the same colour before stepping outside the house -- including his underwear.
"My rule before I leave the house is to ensure, I am spotting one colour. Everything matches the colour of my suits including hat, frames of my eye glasses, vest, neckties, belt,socks, shoes (even laces), my phone covers ( I change them everyday). I think I own a suit of every colour in the world!" he told SDE in an interview.
In the rather unusually interview bumped into by YEN.com.gh, Mwangi states that he came to Nairobi from Muranga County as a 12-year-old kid to hustle. He had only one shirt then and used to wash and wear it.
Now, he buys suits from allover the world some costing as much as Ghc4300.
"I import my suits from more than five countries including South Africa, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. I've identified shops and I give them my orders," he says.
"About the price, it varies from Ghc3400 to Ghc4300 depending on the country."
He says many people including foreigners have been fascinated by his style and some even stop him to ask for photos.
"I have been stopped by so many women who admire my confidence and bold dress code. Even wazungus just want a selfie with me!" he said.
"While growing up, I used to admire my grandfather's choice for good things. Mine is different because I prayed God to give me wisdom."
And with all these suits, how many pairs of shoes does Mwangi have?
"Ha! I have lost count." he said. "But I am sure they can fill your house."
