South Korea President Moon loved Modi jackets. So PM gifted him a Diwali wardrobe

South Korean President Moon Jae-in was recently gifted Jade Blue Modi Jackets by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's sartorial choices have taken the world by storm. Clad in his statement Nehru jacket - renamed 'Modi' jacket post 2014 - and full-sleeved kurta pajamas, the Prime Minister's wardrobe has brought super stardom to Indian politics.

Many politicians in the past have influenced generations of youngsters to groom themselves better. But in current-day India, it is PM Modi who has gained followers with his distinctive yet simple half-sleeve jacket and has made it a style statement for many of his fans.

And now, looks like South Korean President Moon Jae-in too has become a fan of Modi's fashion.

In a series of tweets, the South Korean President revealed how he had once told Narendra Modi that he looked great in the vests he wears. And to thank him for his compliments, Modi recently sent Modi jackets to President Jae-in, all 'meticulously tailored' to his size.

Moon Jae-in wrote on his official Twitter account, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India sent me some gorgeous garments. These are modernized versions of traditional Indian costume, known as the Modi Vest', that can also be worn easily in Korea. They fit perfectly."

"During my visit to India, I had told the Prime Minister Narendra Modi hat he looked great in those vests, and he duly sent them over, all meticulously tailored to my size. I would like to thank him for this kind gesture," he added.

Known as Modi jackets, these vests are manufactured by Chauhan brothers of Jade Blue, who have been designing them since the 80s - when Modi was just an emerging leader moving around town on a scooter.

The label has been selling these kurtas under the 'Modi Brand' through 18 outlets across Gujarat and other states for several years now.
