After constant prodding by his family, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa finally discarded his trademark all-white safari for a sharp Italian-cut suit at the two-day Global Investors Meet (GIM) that began on Thursday, and asked his ministers to do likewise.

The CM, who is not known to appear in anything other than his beloved white safaris, finally got two Indian, a bandhgala and a Nehru suit and as many western suits stitched because his old ones do not fit him anymore.

The suits that Lamba has created for the CM are fashioned from lightweight wool. They are in dark colours as well as shades of cream that suit his skin tone

"He has an all new look, and importantly, he is as comfortable as he is used to being," said r BY Umadevi, Yeddyurappa's daughter.

"He needed this look. I worked with my brother BY Vijayendra to get him these suits and we were extremely happy to see how he turned out."

Paresh Lamba, the designer, who created the suits for the CM, said the suits fashioned from lightweight wool are in dark colours as well as shades of cream that suit his skin tone.

"I have ensured that he wears shirts and ties that match the colour of the new suits, and have taken particular care to use material that breathe so he is comfortable wearing them for long hours," said Lamba.

The CM's daughter is so happy with the results of the makeover that she hopes he will continue to try the new designs more often.

"He looks very good," said Umadevi. "We want him to use these suits as often as the situation demands."

A galaxy of big ticket investors led by ArcelorMittal founder Lakshmi N Mittal, Aditya Birla Group Head Kumaramangalam Birla, Essar Group Chairman Sashi Ruia, UB Group Chief Vijay Mallya, former Confederation of Indian Industries President Venu Srinivasan, Infosys CEO Kris Gopalakrishnan and Wipro Chairman Azim Premji, Baba Kalyani of Bharat Forge and Sajjan Jindal of JSW steels, are attending the meet.
