Politicians dress code

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
Friends.

I wonder if do exist a dress code for politicians or they image assistans only let them wear some stuff.

Example, I have never seen a politician with a striped suit ( only subtle stripe) Perhaps this is mental associated with " mafious"?

Never seen paisley ties either or bespoke $$ shoes.

They wear extrabig suits most of the time, never use nice fitted ones.

And of course dark shirts but thanks God for that

You've just given six people new signatures. I'd call dibs on the second to last line if I wanted a signature.

politicians need to look serious but not flashy. Which usually translates to "boring"

There is a code... No bespoke or it has been to be secret because the Plebeans do not appreciate when their politicians are spending the equivalent of 4 monthly wages on a suit or a pair of shoes.

The suit has too be dark with a preference for navy or charcoal. Darker suits are always more business like and more formal.
Politicians tend to avoid to be too casual and look unprofessional.

Solid ties are always preferred for their elegance and versatility.

You are correct that there is somewhat of a dresscode for politicians, espicially those frequently appearing on television. Narrow stripes (on shirts, ties or suits) can play havoc with the camera, causing a flare effect. A hounds tooth check is also verboten for the same reason. With respect to paisley ties, I believe those went out of style shortly after Prince named his recording studio in honour of the pattern.

Patterns tend to be seen as sartorial risks or liabilities..

Politicians tend to go for dark suit solid tie on white shirt...Simple but efficient because you need to look professional without alienating your potential voters.

The rear of therir trousers need to have an opening large enough for their heads to fit through.

Politicians tend to want people to pay attention to their message not their clothing, hence understated styles that do not detract from the audience's attention

You ought to take a look at the Tory back benchers, plenty of sartorial wit going on there.

I have never seen a politician with a linen suit even on summer!

The only politicians that used to dress " flashy " in Europe actually were gay, far right ones and assesinated by mad lefties. What a macabre coincidence.

Excuse me sir, but are we to be surprised by a conservative politician who is all style and no substance?
