Duterte ain’t a fan of suit, tie: Di damit ng Pinoy yan!

Nov 19, 2017 @ 14:41

President Rodrigo Duterte will not be forced into wearing suit and tie just because other world leaders do.

In a speech in Davao City Saturday (November 18), Duterte said he said he more comfortable wearing a barong, especially when it is hot.

“I do not dress to please anybody. I dress myself to be comfortable. Kaya bihira akong mag-Amerikana. One is that it is not an attire for the Filipino,” he said.

Duterte said he got his sartorial preference from former President Fidel Ramos, who also liked to wear barongs.

Ramos, he added, also folds the sleeves of his barong to be comfortable.

Despite being the host of the ASEAN Summit, Duterte said he never thought of wearing a suit and tie because his counterparts from other countries wear it.

“I go there and I want to please myself,” he said.
