Best dressed US president? - Page 11

post #151 of 163
The likeness is nice, but the artist slummed it right the hell up with the background. The awkward tension created by the urn sitting at where the top of the couch sits is really distracting.

For presidents, I'd have to go with Reagan and Bush I. However, for American politicians, I'd probably go with Mit Romney.

Portuguese prime-minister, Jose Socrates, once revealed in a TV interview that he started buttoning the top of his 3 buttons jackets after Berlusconi telling him something like "It would look better on you, I know because I was a taylor's apprentice".

Great thread! As a new poster I appreciate this bump.

I know this is a painting, but this man definitely had style.

Strangely enough, Berlusconi actually looks better when he doesn't dye his scalp starting at the hairline. Somebody mentioned Willie Brown. In a recent interview, Brown was asked why he thought people made such a big deal about his clothes. His answer was vintage Brown: "Because I make a big deal about them!" (EDIT - Here's the quote:

a few things i read recently. Obama is better at formal than Bush, and Bush better at casual than Obama. after seeing Obamas vacation pictures and Bushs ranch photos, and both of their White House photos....maybe they were right. Bush didnt look comfortable in a suit...neither did Romney.
I did read than Obama is only wearing a navy suit these days. probably true from what Ive seen. at least 90%

Bumping this thread because it seems like Obama has been stepping out of his comfort zone style wise lately. I'm seeing more non-white shirts and ditto for non-black/blue suits.


In any case, if we're talking about other politicians, Jon Huntsman has to be one of the more stylish American politicians.

Presidents tend to dress like members of the Chamber of Commerce, or Rotary
of a third tier Mid-Western City. Even candidate Romney, the recipient of two Harvard Degrees,
and the son of a Fortune 500 CEO and governor of Michigan, dressed in a safe,
boring "corporate bland" style, even though he was based in Boston, a center of
at least ,Ivy style.

The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moinyhan of New York. A man who should have been
President, IMHO, typified an Ivy sprezz, which does justice to the American Style:
