For Those Of You Who Care About Such Frivolous Things: Barack Edition.

WWD collected Inauguration designs from top labels for Meesh first, and now they’ve got some rather… yummy… looks for Barack.

My favorites are the really classic tuxedo looks*, including this one from Brooks Brothers.


I also dug the Nautica offering. It’s rather fitted for an American suit.

But what’s up with this travesty of a tie from Vineyard Vines?!



More at WWD.

*Though, I really think he should just show up to the ball draped in Kente cloth.

    oh my god, that last one looks like it has little divacups printed all over the tie.

  • scott

    I think the “divacups” are supposed to be small images of the US Capital Dome.

  • Erika: Jesus. (Also, it soooooooo does.)

  • he should go with the cosby inspired tuxedo tie from the cosby show. and i’m not sure the tails work.

  • quadmoniker

    Scott, I think you’re right. Not sure it works as a fashion statement :/

  • I say he wears all Black, grow an Afro, put a pick in it, and draw his fist every chance he gets but that’s just me.

    a much as i love a dapper man, classic statements and or just fashion statements

    i think barrack should steer very clear of anything that has become related to ‘the help’
    so no tails (may i take your car keys, hat or order sir?) or white coats

    and/or anything steve harvey/rev sharpton inspired
    so more than two bright (primary or secondary)color combos and glittery stuff(though i don’t think harvey has worn anything glittery to his credit)

    and/or thematic patterns so i’ll include John Witherspoon ala boomerang, which unfortunately is what that tie reminds me of…and i just know someone(designer, family, friend…someone) would not be able to resist the matching it with a sock, jacket lining or napkin to go with it =\

    the center suit is also dangerously close fitting 60’s era tight slacks(ie nut huggers) also a nono for the presidency
