The Stellenbosch FC midfielder has had a breakthrough season with Stellies in the DStv Premiership. 

The 28-year-old has made 13 league appearances this season, and earned himself a Bafana Bafana call-up in the process. 

One of the most consistent holding midfielders in the league, also happens to be one of the most cultural.

Mthethwa's style sees him wear straight/formal pants, golf shirts or branded t-shirts and headwear, mainly being a Fedora hat or a flat Newsboy hat.

He rocks Italian brands such as Fabiani and Carvella, which have stronghold in many sub-cultures in South Africa.

In terms of his taste in Maskandi, he listens to more contemporary acts such as Khuzani Mpungose and Umjabulisi. 

Like ibhinca should, Mthethwa keeps it incredibly clean with his style. His shirt looks permanently tucked in, the loafers always look pristine and the pants are perfectly cropped, the midfield maestro perfectly represents this sub-culture.
