Every man in Nairobi can agree to the fact that styling up is not a cheap affair. Men’s clothes are expensive and with the long dry January period is behind us, that does not mean you have to break your bank account just to look good. Here’s a couple of places to get good clothes on a not-so-good budget.
From cotton, silk, polyester and polo, you can fill up your closet with shirts and T-shirts for as low as 100 shillings from Toi Market.
From the depths of Gikomba, you can get a really good pair of jeans or a wide range of khakis. Just get there early and you’ll get the crème de la crème of budget men’s clothes for as low as 500.
Mwanaume ni kiatu! You can never go wrong with a good pair on your feet. Finding them is quite a hassle but that doesn’t mean they can’t be found. Hawkers, however chaotic they may be, offer some really good pairs for incredibly affordable prices. Talk of Balenciaga sneakers worth only KES 1,000, Converse All Stars worth less than KES 800 and official shoes for as low as KES 1500. (Just don’t buy them in the dark)
January has been surprisingly cold and with that, getting a hoodie wouldn’t necessarily be a bad idea. Check out some great options from CBD hawkers or at Kenyatta Market for as little as 400.
Get that extra pizzazz and classy look with watches, shades and belts from different IG stores, for as low as Kes 500.
You can pretty much get boxers, vests and socks from every clothes vendor in Nairobi, whether hawkers, stalls/stores or IG shops. However, we would recommend getting legit products from department stores such as LC Waikiki, Mr Price and Woolworths.
