Influenced by the totally newsworthy suit worn by Narendra Modi during Obama’s visit last week, the college sweatshirt business in DU is in a state of boom as manufacturers are porting the Prime Minister’s style to colleges of Delhi University. Now, for all those bad hair days on which one doesn’t want people to even look at their face, students have the option of buying a custom sweatshirt with their own names pinstriped in gold in the front and their college’s logo at the back.

Sweatshirts are an important feature of college life as they invoke pride of belonging to a particular institution and this revolutionary variant of the same is taking it to the next level. Dubbed as the narcissist’s dress code on Twitter, the cloak is finding a lot of takers in University campuses.

Selfies in the sweatshirt have already started floating around Instagram and Facebook feeds with the hashtags, #Just NarcissisticThings and #Mitron.

The sweatshirt is priced much lower than Modi’s Rs.10 lakh suit at just Rs.55,000 and comes with EMI and house-mortgage options. You can also avail a discount of Rs.5000 by flashing your iPhone 6 (gold variant only) or Jan Dhan Yojana bank passbook while booking. The word on the street is that not only are these becoming popular among the students, a few teachers have placed orders too. Acche din, indeed!
