Narendra Modi is killin' it.

The Wall Street Journal asks Is Modi India's Best-Dressed Prime Minister Ever? And without being qualified to answer the question, we will observe that the prime minister demonstrates that the principles of good design can be deployed to great success whether you wear suits and shirts or vests and kurtas. The article contains some great tidbits from his tailor about his choice of warm colours and use of Italian wool in traditional Indian clothes. A tweedy brown jacket that is well tailored looks great and works with a red pocket square no matter the type of collar or sartorial tradition that its form reflects.

All he really has left to do is work in some bleeding Madras. Show some love for Chennai, man.
