Everyone's looking at his wife anyway in that picture.

And here is a child of that revolution: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:
Sartorially, the apple fell a long away from the tree.
And this is Justin recently in Davos... OMG...
And, mama was a Rolling Stone's groupie, so who knows where talent comes from
Note tab collar, collar pin, red dots on tie, white linen hank. If politicians must dress in bland suits and white shirts, this is how to do it.
Foley looking senatorial, showing people how to wear a navy tie with a white bar stripe.
There is no reason Paul Ryan couldn't wear that. Instead, he goes for hideous light satins that Foley wouldn't have dreamed of:
He knew the value of a light gray suit and a black tie, which hardly anyone in DC wears nowadays (note the nice fit in the armhole and sleeve, clearly custom work):

Two trad men. I like HW's suit better, but Foley's ensemble wins:
This is how Bush should have done it:
He could even do dark gray suit, whiteish shirt, and dark gray tie without being visually dull:
That, for me, is senatorial dress. If Congressmen want respect, they ought to dress like that.
Unfortunately for Foley, he followed the Italian fashions that began to conquer DC under the Clintons. He began wearing Armani- or Abboud-style 1990s ties. Here's Foley at the end of his reign, wearing a tie in those Italian fashions. If he'd stuck with trad, would he have kept his House seat?

Here is one guy most people here probably never heard about. Milo Djukanovic is de-facto boss of Montenegro, currently its Prime Minister, and before also president (he rules the country for last almost 30 years, to be clear).
