Khairy Jamaluddin pairs a batik shirt with Doc Martens, brings infinite swag to Government

Every once in a while, a Federal Minister will go above and beyond the call of duty and inspire Malaysians to just do better. It doesn’t happen very often, but trust, it does happen.

Such an event took place yesterday, when Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin posted a picture of himself and Indonesia’s new Minister of Youth and Athletics, Iman Nahrawi. In the Facebook post, Khairy can be clearly seen stunting his ministerial ass off wearing a batik shirt, paired with a pair of burgundy Doc Martens boots.




Much swag. So boots. Wow style. 

No matter what your personal politics may be, you can hardly deny that at least this minister is dragging the Cabinet kicking and screaming into Kanye-levels of personal grooming. And judging by the amount of Likes this post has received, almost 22,000 people are totally on board with this style choice. 

Props, KJ. You win this round.
