I think Raj looked very dapper, actually. Certainly not appropriate for the occassion, but the MSNBC article was idiotic. First of all, I think that Raj showed an incredible skill in pattern/color matching -- the bow tie and coat actually went with the red pants, as did the spectator shoes. Indeed, it's hard to imagine the red pants looking better with anything else. Secondly, the comment about the pleated pants was probably the dumbest comment in the article. I'm sorry, but can we please recognize that pleats -- if not "hip" in the Prada sense -- are (or can be) graceful, elegant, and classic? Would the bow tie ensemble really have gone better with flat front pants? The cane clearly was over the top, though.
