Reportedly, his decision to ditch the suit and wear Pakistan’s national dress was lauded by many and a designer from Islamabad claimed that he had designed Khan’s dress for his meeting with the US president.
A close associate of PM Imran Khan says PM got clothes stitched from a “simple local tailor.” However, “Mohtaram,” a self-claimed bespoke luxury clothing store, that recently stitched PM’s clothes charges at least Rs 16,000 for a Shalwar Qameez. Not clear if used for US visit

However, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari rubbished the claims and revealed in a tweet that the First Lady – Bushra Bibi – herself bought all the clothes and got them stitched from a simple local tailor.
“The PM has never been interested in designers or worn them. Especially for his simple shalwar kameez. The First Lady bought all the cloth and got it stitched from a simple local tailor. Whichever designer is trying to claim credit for it is not only a liar but a cheat,” tweeted Zulfi Bukhari.
