Dugyot no more! Duterte looking sharp in his suit at ASEAN meet
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte looked crisp on the first day of the 35th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.
Duterte wore an electric blue suit during his attendance to ASEAN Summit plenary session and the signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding between the ASEAN and the Fédération Internationale de Football Association on November 2.
He also kept his necktie properly tied.
To recall, Duterte showed up a bit unkempt during his meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow early this month. He was seen wearing a loose tie and open collar.

“President Duterte does not look unkempt. What those kibitzers referred to was the way he wore his tie. He loosened it up. He feels suffocated and uncomfortable if the tie is tightly in place in the collar,” said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo.
