Fashion in Tonights Debate: Romney vs Obama

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

I am writing an article on Political Fashion and would appreciate your help. For those who are watching the debate tonight, pay attention to how Obama and Romney are dressed.

 

Things to Watch for:

- Clothing Fit

- Tie Colors

- Tie Knot and Shirt Collar

- Accessories

- Suit & Shirt Colors and Cut

- Etc.

 

Your input is much appreciated and you will (if you like) be cited in the post.

 

Hendrik

Tie colors should be boring and conservative.
Accessories....not much outside of MAYBE a white pocket square.
Dark suits. White or MAYBE a blue shirt.

This is going to be straightfwd..interview like gear. Nothing special.

Can we not call it "fashion" either? MC folks are not "fashionable." Fashion is a women's thing that comes and goes with the season. We are stylish, hence the StyFo name

I doubt either of the candidates will be "fashionable" tonight for this serious "job interview"

Debate hasn't started yet, but I dislike Wolf Blitzer's suit.

He has very sloping shoulders, and the soft shoulders on his jacket don't look good. Needs some more padding. I think the fabric may be black too baldy[1].gif

Nothing wrong with a black jacket at night.

He's too old and pale to pull it off.

I really hate black suits, I don't care if night or day.  Charcoal is SO much better.

Both have decent suits.
Don't like Romneys multi stripe red and yellow tie. Also, the points of his collar are not long enough.

Advantage Obama

Obama's suit fits better but I personally like Romney's tie better.  Mitt's tie is more American and his flag pin is bigger.  Advantage Romney

Obama showing a semblance of a dimple, Romney not.

obama wins. Suit fits better, tie is nicer, as is the knot.

True dat. And his knot was generally sloppy and off center. If you're going on national TV in prime time, get your knot right!!! A big time consultant should know better.
