The Wardrobe War

If contests demand a matching “weave” length, Rahul Gandhi is shoulder to shoulder with Narendra Modi. In a strictly sartorial sense, of course. The high-collared sleeveless jacket, made famous by the PM as ‘Modi jacket’, now has competition in the youthful bomber jackets worn by the Congress president. You can’t miss Gandhi’s bomber over a white kurta; neither does he. Unlike the shades and hues of the PM’s jackets, Gandhi’s colour of choice is neutral. Black and olive green. The bomber has caught on with the Congress brigade. Sachin Pilot and Jyotiraditya Scindia have been flaunting the style too. Also, these are definitely not the expensive Burberry types for which Gandhi received a lot of flak early this year.
