I wouldn't have noticed a year ago, before I started reading SF.  It's wrecked me.

Idiotic and arbitrary convention.

You may be a bit mental sometimes Rev, but you are spot on with this one.

For those of us with high insteps derbies are the only option anyway!

He has got to be the most stylish president since JFK.  Let him wear derbies!

Thank you.
To not wear bluchers with a suit just because of open lacing (or due to "timeless rules") might be the paragon of SF OCD.
Anyone with any real world perspective knows that no sane person will ever notice this, or give a damn.

Prefer balmorals, but as long as they're not loafers, it's perfectly acceptable.

 

Things I don't like about Obama's style:

 

Dad jeans

Stupid ball caps

Flag pins

His suits could fit better

He could use some more variety in his suiting

 

His shoes are fine.

slender figure != stylish.  Reagan is stylish.  Obama is not.

Too true. I never thought Obama was particularly stylish. He dresses better than a lot of presidents of the modern day but that isn't saying much.
