The monogrammed suit donned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his meeting with US President Barack Obama last year entered Guinness World Records as “most expensive suit sold at an auction“.
The suit had gone under the hammer in February last year and was purchased for Rs 4.31 crore by Surat-based diamond trader Lalji Patel.“We had applied for the world record five months back. Within a couple of months, we received a certificate acknowledging that it was the world’s most expensive suit sold at an auction,“ Hitesh Patel, son of Laljibhai, said on Saturday .
The suit, which has stripes with the name “Narendra Damodardas Modi“ woven into it in glittering gold letters, was prepared at Rs 10 lakh.
