From colorful headgear and Indian kurtas to bandh gala (closed neck) coats and suits, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s power dressing has turned many heads, earning him the title of the most stylish leader.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has once again made fashion headlines as he donned a sleeveless jacket made of recycled materials while in Hiroshima for the annual summit of the G7.
During his trip to Japan, Modi visited the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on Sunday, wearing a beige-colored sleeveless 'sadri' jacket over his signature white kurta and pajama.

Modi Keeps it Both Indigenous & Sustainable

The sadri jacket, which is a traditional Indian garment typically worn by men, is a short-fitted jacket with buttons along the front and a mandarin collar.
Crafted by EcoLine Clothing, the jacket was sustainably crafted from recycled fabric made of PET bottles that were crushed, melted, and had color added and produced its yarn.
This innovative process significantly reduces emissions at multiple production stages.
This isn’t the first time that PM Modi has made a sustainable fashion statement.
In February this year, Modi turned many heads by wearing a sleeveless sky-blue jacket made from recycled plastic bottles to Parliament during India Energy Week in Bengaluru city.
The jacket was gifted to him by the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC).
The company soon took to social media to say: “Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, who unveiled our #Unbottled Campaign at #IndiaEnergyWeek on Monday, wore the special jacket made from recycled PET bottles at the Parliament today. By wearing this sustainably-made jacket, he strengthened our resolve to power India’s phenomenal green growth saga and this remarkable gesture will provide a great fillip to the circular economy.”
