Sorry - was that "Christ could have chosen a better outfit"?

Or perhaps Dick Cheney is today's Duke of Windsor.  Twenty years from now, when we are all wearing snorkel parkas over black tie, we will look back and wonder why people used to insist on wearing dark wool overcoats to formal events.

This.  At least, if memory serves, Bush Sr. was wearing black tie when he vomited.

I do not think he would have been welcome at this ceremony if he was.

LOL. Probably right.

He was a bit underdressed for His own execution but no, I think He pulled off His look. Apologies to those offended by that bit of irreverence. I meant Cheney :-)

I can't imagine Cheney would so terribly underdress on purpose though
Oh, ye of little faith... This can't have been a screwup.  There's not a stray second of these guys' public appearances that isn't carefully choreographed and costumed with much deliberation.  Proper dress for a head of state at a freaking Holocaust memorial has got to be on the top ten list of sartorial no-brainers.  And we know he's got at least one black formal overcoat--those of us who could stand to watch saw it at the inaugural.   The knit cap with Jackson Hole ski-lodge crap printed all over is bad enough, but a military-issue olive-drab parka at this particular event seems even more wildly inappropriate.

The Veep's clothes were inappropriate. I have the hunch that this was a mistake and that he did not have the black dress overcoat. He must have been faced with a last minute decision of the snorkel or nothing. Or perhaps he froze during the innaugural and that he figured that his warmth and health are of paramount importance. He must have known ahead of time that the European heads of state would be there. In any event, I heard an excerpt of his speech. It was very touching, and I am proud that he represented the USA.

(tdial @ Jan. 28 2005,07:22) Is Kermit's one button suit jacket a peak-lapel or a notch. It's very difficult to tell, but the lapel styling is wonderful, either way.
I love the purple. I had a fleece jacket by Royal Robbins in that color that I adored. I lost it during a Jeep ride between Khajuraho and Satna, while using it as a pillow. Must have slipped out from under my head. Anyone seen it? It was a size L.
I saw something like that being worn by a guy in Omkareshwar a couple of years ago - it still looked natty. Madhya Pradesh is tough on fleece jackets.

It was bad enough that Bush was not there, which was printed in lots of media before the fact. And to see what Dick chose to wear I can only conclude that this was an intentional slap. The man has more money than God. He probably has a bespoke topper with a hidden fur lining why would he not? It probably would have looked better to send the First Lady imo.
