Does Rishi Sunak only have ONE hoodie? Chancellor dons his favourite grey £46 Everlane sweater for THIRD time for model-style snaps (and his wardrobe is bulging with lookalike jumpers)
- Rishi Sunak is to unveil £500million funding package to help furloughed workers
- Chancellor appeared in more carefully posed catalogue model-style snaps
- Father-of-two donned his favourite £46 Everlane hoodie for the occasion
- He has been snapped wearing it on a host of occasions over the past 18 months
Rishi Sunak donned his favourite dark grey £46 Everlane hoodie for a third time as he posed for carefully choreographed catalogue mode-style snaps ahead of unveiling a £500 million funding package today.
The politician, dubbed ‘Dishy Rishi’ by his female fans, has been in the role of Chancellor for 18 months, which has seen his profile soar from a relatively unknown minister to one of the nation’s most recognisable politicians, with the help of a well-oiled PR operation.
The multi-millionaire has also become renowned for his trendy fashion sense, with Rishi splashing the cash on expensive tailors to fit both his slim-fitting shirts and navy suit trousers that finish well above the ankle.
However by far his favourite item appears to be his cosy grey hoodie from American brand Everlane, which he has been snapped wearing on a host of occasions over the last 18 months.
Yesterday, the Chancellor was seen wearing the knit as he arrived at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester.

Snaps were later shared as the father-of-two wore the hoodie while practicing a speech alongside his team.
The neutral coloured knit is from Everlane and costs £46.
The American brand prides itself on ethical factories and total transparency in the supply chain and pricing.
Rishi has been spotted in the garment on a host of appearances over the last 18 months.
It’s far from the first time the Chancellor has shown off his hoodie, having donned the item as he appeared in a Conservative Party video in August 2020
He donned the item as he appeared in a Conservative Party video in August 2020, before opting to wear it again for a set of photographs released in November last year.
And it’s not the only grey hoodie that the multi-millionaire has in his wardrobe.
In March 2020, the Chancellor shared a snap on Twitter as he took to working from home during the first Covid-19 lockdown.
In the picture, Rishi could be seen tapping away on his computer while wearing a cosy light grey knit to keep himself warm.

Stylists previously told FEMAIL 5’6 Sunak, who often shares photos wearing upmarket athletic wear from ethical labels and trendy Barbour jackets, uses clever tricks to ‘elongate his body’.
Celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage revealed: ‘Politicians are not known for possessing the greatest wardrobes, yes Boris I’m looking at you, yet Rishi is always extremely well presented.’
Lucas also said the chancellor’s wife Akshata Murthy, daughter of one of India’s richest men, could be behind his stylish looks.
Akshata runs a fashion label and can no doubt offer advice to the MP about his sense of style and tailoring.

Lucas revealed: ‘It’s important to note Rishi’s wife is the daughter of a fashion mogul so access to bespoke tailors wouldn’t be an issue and perhaps she has had an influence on his impeccable style choices.’
Later today, Rishi will unveil a £500million funding package to help get furloughed workers back into jobs.
During the pandemic, the £70billion furlough scheme is credited with saving millions of jobs.
But around one million workers were still on the programme when it finally closed last week, sparking fears of a surge in unemployment.
And it’s not the only grey hoodie that the multi-millionaire has in his wardrobe (pictured, in a different grey hoodie during the first lockdown in March 2020)
In his keynote speech to the Conservative Party conference today, the Chancellor will announce funding to ‘prioritise’ job support for workers coming off furlough.
The £500million extension to the Government’s plan for jobs will also provide tailored packages for others hit by the pandemic, including the young and workers aged over 50.
Mr Sunak is the son of a GP father and pharmacist mother who emigrated to Southampton from East Africa in the 1960s, and he studied at Oxford University before winning a Fulbright scholarship to Stanford where he met his future wife Akshata.
Akshata and Rishi now live with their daughters Krishna and Anoushka at home in Downing Street.

Akshata has shares in her family’s tech firm that are worth £430million, making her one of Britain’s wealthiest women with £80million more cash than the Queen. Her father is worth an estimated £2.3billion ($3.1bn).
She is the daughter of one of the richest men in India – billionaire N. R. Narayana Murthy – who has been described as the father of the Indian IT sector and ‘one of the 12 greatest businessmen of all time’.
Sunak and Akshata married in 2009 in her home city of Bangalore in a two-day ceremony attended by 1,000 guests.

Before entering politics, Mr Sunak, studied at the £42,000-per-year Winchester College and later at Oxford University.
During his time in business, he worked in California, India and Britain for various investment firms including Goldman Sachs. He later set up his own business, Theleme Partners, in 2010 with an initial fund of £536million.
While building the hedge fund he spent a couple of days doing voluntary work for the Conservatives, which was when he decided to go into politics full-time.
