Uganda: Mukuye's Clients Determine What He Wears

Reagan Mukuye is a director and a graphic designer at Ludigo Creations, an arts and creations company in Kampala. He is well groomed and he shared his secrets.

Casual or suits?

I wear both casual and suits, but it depends on the clients I am going to see. If I go to someone who wants me for graphic design, I wear a suit; and if it's to draw art work in our workshop, my casual outfits are the best choice because you have to show the simplicity of work you are doing.

Generally, I am more into casual outfits than suits.

No brands?

I don't really care much about particular brands. Anything that strikes my taste, I will go for it. Those brands are not that important as long as I can get what fits me well from anywhere.

Shop downtown?

I am a simple man and I can't shy away from the fact that I shop from downtown. I have a particular guy who owns a boutique, and he always brings nice fitting shirts and flats (trousers).

No watches!

I don't wear watches because to me, they just seem like a constant bother on my arm. I either use my phone to check the time or look at my laptop's taskbar if I am in the office.

To men out there...

We should try as much as possible to look good. The way you dress depicts what you do, where you come from and communicates to people indirectly why they should accord you the respect you deserve.
