    And he seems to wear it as a sports coat as well. From the pictures on the news tonight- it seems to be quite big. Probably just a calculated contrast to Romneys nicely tailored threads.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that..

    In his defense - the first two pictures seem to be from the same event.

    Well, there goes my theory that Ryan and Ron Paul own one suit that they share.

    It is only about a size or two too big for him.

    I would hardly say that Romney's threads are all that nice. Pretty standard politico-wear.

    Policitian nowadays have a strange habit, they like to have the same black suit, 5-7 of them so they can change into the 'same' one everyday without looking different.

    Politic has been something for the weak party, apparently spending on good looking clothes is wrong and being unethical to make money is fine.

    I love back in the days how Prime Minister dress, or the famous judges or Queen's council.

    I have no idea why it had change to this bad taste.

    Well they had to stop spending money on good looking clothes so no one would question them when they were being unethical to make money :rotflmao:

    Btw not all politicians are that terrible at dressing. For a political George W. Bush was pretty ok.

    I think you will find that the previous generation of Queen's Counsel dressed fairly monochromatically - it would have been a dark three piece suit, tunic shirt and dark tie when not in court and the usual uniform when in court. While I agree this was in good taste, it jars with what you assert in your post.

    'W' dressed atrociously until he ran for President. His father was in a different league.

    My wife who doesn't follow politics at all and had never seen him before today said the same thing. He looks like that geeky guy from Sabre on the office.

    You think most American men have a suit as "good" (and I use that tern loosely) as Paul Ryan's? They certainly don't have clothes as nice as what Obama or either of the Bush's wore on the campaign trail.
