A bright pink tie. If he's willing to be bold while a candidate, let's see what he'll do when (if?) president.

Was it pink? I did not see today's appearance, but often, I thought that I've seen him wear a pink tie only to discover that it is a red tie (with white dotes) when the camera did a close up shot.

Anyone read the article on him in the New Yorker? I was surprised that he'd choose a Hermes tie with lacrosse sticks on it for the Avedon photo -- not too populist, but then again, maybe that photo will appeal to readers of the New Yorker.

Hermes? How unpatriotic.

I just find the T&A and Hermes combination bewildering on so many levels. Of course it's strange politically (which I admire in a certain way), but they're really just wrong together. The T&A collars are too assertive for the Hermes tie (which is on the thinner side and lacks body). Hermes requires soft tailoring with a minimum of structure; T&A would be right at home with Huntsman. But it's Kerry's uniform and the only reason anyone would choose such a combination is personal preference, no focus groups here.

Aren't most Ike Behar shirts made in Canada?

You could wear a Talbott shirt and Behar tie, though.

I won't vote for Kerry (or likely Bush, for that matter), but he is the snazzier dresser of the two.

The following is from Washingtonian magazine. Thought it might be of interest given the conversation.

Hill Staffers Pick the Best and Worst of Congress

No one knows the members of Congress better than their top aides. That's why, every election year, we ask key Capitol Hill staffers to tell us who the good, the bad, and the dimwitted are among their bosses.

BEST DRESSED
1. Gordon Smith (R-OR)

2. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

3. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX)

Daschle, Clinton, Torricelli, Edwards, and Biden split the Democratic vote.

FASHION VICTIM
1. Paul Wellstone (D-MN)

2. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)

3. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-CO) More than two-thirds of Campbell's votes came from his GOP colleagues.

BEST DRESSED
1. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

2. David Dreier (R-CA)

3. Mark Foley (R-FL)

California cool breezes to victory.

FASHION VICTIM
1. Jim Traficant (D-OH)

2. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT)

3. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA)

Traficant has won this category since 1986

they are all crooks.
well, traficant is the only one convicted of a crime. Â coincidence that he is also the worst dressed? Â i remember reading an article in which he was described as wearing a "white denim suit with a blue denim shirt" at a hearing. Â sounds like ample justification for a prison term to me.
