The Thais have given a big thumbs down to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha's latest attempts to appear fashionable.
The PM and NCPO head had tried to project a new image but respondents of a "Super Poll" have told him not to bother.
Some 74.6% of respondents said he should go back to the suits he wore when he led the coup.
A quarter of respondents thought if he was going for a new look it needed a rethink.
Daily News said that 1,450 people of working age were asked their opinion - out of these 56% said they support the current government or had in the past.
Opinion was also sought on whether Prayut should be in politics at all.
Some 66.1% said he should abandon politics but remain head of the NCPO (National Council for Peace and Order).
Only 33.9% thought politics was a right choice for him.
