The shirt looks fine, as do the sleeve lengths on the suit, although one seems to be longer than the other - although that may just be because of how he's leaning. Obviously, everything he's wearing could be cut slimmer and the jacket length looks a tad long, but the President is not supposed to look fashion-forward, just reliable and conservatively dressed. Obama's suit sleeve length looks a bit long in that photo. I hate George Bush, but I don't see anything overly unbefitting a president in that photo. He doesn't look fantastic, but then again, he doesn't have to.

Everyone here is going to recommend Tighter-Slimmer-Shorter-Svelter-Trimmer, but it's fairly standard as far as presidential suits go. American business standard.

Is little Bush a J. Press man like his daddy? The trouser break could be cleaner, could be the wonky stance though.

Nice suit hes wearing; very conservative and not aggressively tailored.

I think GWB is more of an Oxxford guy.

Don't know if he wears any J. Press

I hope Mike Cohen gets to Obama and switches him from HSM to Oxxford.

I think both Obama and Bush's pants have seriously odd breaks going on.

Not GW fan either, but I think he looks just fine. Yes, it's baggy, but as someone else said, that's business as usual in America.

I contrast this with Josh Brolin's look in W which was considerably tighter and looked almost childish by comparison. However, I'm sure that was the point given the theme of the movie.

Obama also looks great. Even Tom Ford said that he wouldn't do much of anything to him (style-wise) if given the opportunity.

I don't think there's much leeway for elected officials to express themselves sartorially. That's why I gave up my political career.

It's a ******* KIA bracelet honoring Sgt. Ryan David Jopek. McCain wears one too honoring another soldier.
