It just shows what a "limosine liberal" Kerry is and the integrity that he lacks. As the canidate that is "pro-union" and "outsourcing opponent", according to our trade paper DNR, Southwick's website, and Kerry's press releases, Kerry wears Southwick, a Union Made in the USA (his homestate of Mass.) garment. Anyone familiar with Southwick can easily tell that that is not a Southwick garment, but looks very similiar to a D&G or Paul Smith garment (which the last time I have seen one, it wasn't Union Made in the USA).
Ignoring the political rant - Southwick does MTM. Isn't it possible that Kerry just prefers some rather exotic flourishes? BTW, even if he were not wearing Southwick in that particular photograph does not make him necessarily a hypocrite. Being pro-union and anti-sourcing would infer that he supports union
labor in local
companies. It does not necessarily infer that he supports a protectionist stance on free trade, nor that he is against luxury imports from the European Union. He can wear Kiton with a clear conscience. He might even be supporting local business (Louis Boston, I imagine.) Now, if he wore cheap, Made in Sri Lanka suits from The Men's Wearhouse - then you might have a point. LA Guy, who knows that this is not going to get him any deals on a really sweet custom suit, but wanted to show how clever he was any way. P.S.
