Meet Sibusiso ‘Skinny Sbu’ Ngwenya

Sibusiso Ngwenya, born in South Africa is the Founder and Head Designer of Skinny Sbu Socks (SSS), an authentic luxury sock brand designed and manufactured in Africa.

Skinny Sbu Socks is Africa’s leading luxury sock brand – focusing on design, craftsmanship and artistry. Our business is to give the modern man a sense of confidence, enhance his style and set him apart from the crowd by producing high quality designer socks. The brand was established in April 2013 by Founder & Head Designer Sibusiso Ngwenya who is the youngest Sock Maker in the world at age 23 and is also the first black sock maker in the world. “By 2013, I had already collected over 70 pairs of socks, mostly by international 

brands. At this point, I spotted a gap in the South African market and had the idea of making a business out of designing home-grown high-quality socks. For me, it was a natural transition to move from a sock collector to now building an international luxury sock brand,” says Ngwenya The Skinny Sbu Socks Man cares about his look which is why he goes to the gym, goes for a facial and enjoys indoor and outdoor activities including fashion Weeks, Horse Racing Events, Saturday Markets and spends his money on things of value – what he wears matters.
