Look At What John Kerry Wore in Bali Today

A purple printed Endek!


The Secretary of State showed up at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Nusa Dua, Bali on Monday in a psychedelic purple "Endek" -- a shirt made out of traditional Balinese woven textiles -- looking, well, not completely at home. His selection was bolder than that of some of the other world leaders who posed for a big group photo: Vladimir Putin, for example, got away with dark green.
