To be the man, you have to beat the man or at least dress like the man. Since Jinder Mahal shockingly beat 14-time World Champion Randy Orton for the WWE Championship back at Backlash 2017, we’ve seen a significant transformation in his appearance.
No, not his actual body transformation that I can only describe as a "boy becoming a man who ate a ton of protein powder and discovered that abdominal muscles also have veins." We’re talking about a style transition. One that is undoubtedly financed by an increase in PPV and Championship match appearances. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can purchase some starch for a new suit.
Like him or not, the former leather pants clad 3MB member has now turned into a full-fledged fashion icon. And while we have a soft spot for Ric Flair, it’s hard to argue against Mahal becoming one of the smoothest and stylish WWE superstars in the company’s history.
Don't believe us? Here are our favourite looks from Jinder Mahal during his successful, and remarkable, push throughout 2017. Who do you think is the best dressed WWE Superstar of all time?
November 28, 2017: Jinder Mahal Turns on the Singh Brothers, in Plaid!
The clip below is admittedly after Jinder removed his jacket, but even so, you can tell this isn't just any plaid suit in movement. The look and fit are more like Flair than it is Shooter McGavin. We'd all look like old English grandmothers if we tried to pull this look off, but on the Modern Day Maharaja, it works.
The cropped pants are sure to show off some ankle muscles as Jinder turns on the Singh Brothers after their defeat to AJ Styles. Because if anyone in the WWE has ankle muscles, it's Jinder.
