Robert S. Mac McNamara, longest serving U S Secretary of Defense 1961-68. Another
sack-suited Cold Warrior. He did penance as President of the World Bank afterwards.

Sebastian Kurz, political wunderkind, and at 33 Austrian Chancellor. Looks like he exclusively shops at Suit Supply:

I think Karl Heinz Grasser, former Austrian minister of finance, might be up there with the best dressed statesmen. He's also up there when it comes to looking like a white collar criminal. As far as I know he's a client of Neapolitan tailor Gianni Volpe.

Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Edwardian gentleman and founder of Pakistan. His legacy:
essentially a failed state with nuclear weapons.

The man in these photos is Rafael Trujillo , dictator of the Dominican Republic from 1930 - 1961 . George Frazier wrote
in The Art of Wearing Clothes 1960 ""As for Trujillo, his taste in clothes is apparently as undiscriminating as it is in certain other matters. He once commissioned a New York tailor to make him — sight unseen! — fourteen suits at $285 each, four sports jackets at $196 apiece, ten sports shirts at from $20 to $30 each, twenty-five $33 dress shirts, fifty $7.50 neckties, and four pairs of slacks at $88 a pair." Although I am not sure if he is referring to Ramfis , his son.

El Benefactor de la Nation was assassinated in 1961 when his '57 Chevy was
ambushed by military officers. Among the seven conspirators, five were caught
and summarily executed at the direction of Ramfis Trujillo, the dictator's son and
designated successor. One of the survivors, General Antonio Imbert later served
briefly as president and lived to age 96. I was at the US Embassy in the Dominican
Republic during the civil war that ensued after these events.

With his height and bearing King Felipe would look good in Mens Wearhouse clothing.

Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, wears stylish clothes well with no particular flair
Tattoo looks like a First Nations motif.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
