President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo was seen wearing a customized jacket with the 2018 Asian Games logo and artwork of the event's sports on Thursday.
In his Instagram photo, the President was captured from the back, showing his followers the customized design, which was created by Nevertoolavish.
Nevertoolavish cofounder Bernhard Suryaningrat told kompas.com that Jokowi requested a customized jacket with an Asian Games theme, which led them to create several designs.
Upon the President's approval of the design, Nevertoolavish then worked on the jacket, which was produced by local brand Ayedenim.
It took Nevertoolavish seven days to finish the jacket as the colorful designs were quite challenging.
Bernhard has yet to reveal the exact price of the jacket. However, he mentioned that it was probably worth around Rp 4 million (US$286.77).
It was not the first time Jokowi was seen wearing a customized jacket. During the opening ceremony of the 2018 Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) at JIEXpo Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, last month, the President wore a customized denim jacket with a map of Indonesia emblazoned on the chest area.
