    a few things i read recently. Obama is better at formal than Bush, and Bush better at casual than Obama. after seeing Obamas vacation pictures and Bushs ranch photos, and both of their White House photos....maybe they were right. Bush didnt look comfortable in a suit...neither did Romney.
    I did read than Obama is only wearing a navy suit these days. probably true from what Ive seen. at least 90%

    Bumping this thread because it seems like Obama has been stepping out of his comfort zone style wise lately. I'm seeing more non-white shirts and ditto for non-black/blue suits.

    In any case, if we're talking about other politicians, Jon Huntsman has to be one of the more stylish American politicians.

    Presidents tend to dress like members of the Chamber of Commerce, or Rotary
    of a third tier Mid-Western City. Even candidate Romney, the recipient of two Harvard Degrees,
    and the son of a Fortune 500 CEO and governor of Michigan, dressed in a safe,
    boring "corporate bland" style, even though he was based in Boston, a center of
    at least ,Ivy style.

    The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moinyhan of New York. A man who should have been
    President, IMHO, typified an Ivy sprezz, which does justice to the American Style:
