What does Modi have in common with ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and notorious Irish boxer Conor Mcgregor?
Not a lot you might say! However they have all in the recent years made the rather ostentatious choice of commissioning a suit worth 10 Lakh from their tailor. 10 Lakh! Must be made of gold you say? Well yes kind of.
These one of a kind suits are specially woven in the UK with a chosen name (or phase) in the pinstripe. Woven with gold threads no less.
Here is Modi in 2015 meeting Barack Obama in a dashing pinstripe wool bandhgala, close inspection reveals the pinstripe is in fact Modi's full name "Narendra Damodardas Modi" woven thousands of times to create a pinstripe.
But he wasn't the first world leader to commission such a tailoring extravagance as the twitterati at the time were quick to point out.
Shortly after being ousted after 30 years of ruling Egypt dictator Hosni Mubarak wore a two piece suit baring his name.
A little ostentatious considering he'd just been ousted a month previously!
And then in 2017 came Conor McGregor. He made sure all eyes were on him at a press conference for what was hyped to be the biggest boxing match in history. He lost the match but gained notoriety in tailoring history with this less than salubrious but perfectly tailored 3 piece suit.
Narcissistic? A little.
Instagram-able and unforgettable? Totally.
Working with the UK mill that made the fabric for these suits we can offer you the chance to have your very own version.
We would prefer to leave the expletives at home and suggest something a little classier, your name for example or a message to your betrothed on your wedding day.
Whatever your message get in touch today.
