So it would appear he wears Gucci suits? Doesn't Gucci have 5 buttons on the sleeves?

could be Corneliani as well, or maybe a custom tailor who likes buttons also. Â For future clarity (yeah, right, as if we'll care about this at all eight weeks for now) I'll crosslink to the other thread in which the Kerry cuffs are under discussion today......

Paul Smith suits also have five buttons. Isn't JK a fan of T&A shirts? Don't they offer three button cuffs on some of their shirts?

That's a Turnbull & Asser shirt. No doubt about it.

Five buttons on the suit sleeve is...questionable.

His tailor isn't that great, though--the jacket is moving off his shoulders/neck as he moves his arm.

I was going to say that the shirt was definitely T&A. I rather like the 3-button cuff that they use.

A few months back, Time or Newsweek ran a profile on Kerry that included an anecdote about a bunch of Senators heading off for a retreat. Another Senator was ribbing Kerry about his sport coat and corduroy trousers, so Kerry complained "Biden's wearing the same thing, why pick on me." The response: "yeah, but yours cost a lot more."

Ugghhh... Politicians almost pride themselves on looking like shit. It's a shame considering the power and influence some of them yield. If you're going to act the part, at least look the part.

Just remembered... GQ was ribbing Kerry a while back for wearing tailored jeans, lol.

It just shows what a "limosine liberal" Kerry is and the integrity that he lacks. As the canidate that is "pro-union" and "outsourcing opponent", according to our trade paper DNR, Southwick's website, and Kerry's press releases, Kerry wears Southwick, a Union Made in the USA (his homestate of Mass.) garment. Anyone familiar with Southwick can easily tell that that is not a Southwick garment, but looks very similiar to a D&G or Paul Smith garment (which the last time I have seen one, it wasn't Union Made in the USA).

LA Guy:
No deals here regardless of your political views.....LOL

I know Southwick does MTM as they are my CTM house of my Leighton Collection of traditional clothing. I spoke to them about this and they deny that that is their jacket. I didn't mean to put my political views out there, but I expect my President to wear ONLY USA made clothing. Not T&A shirts, Kiton suits or the like. In my state (West Virginia), which is heavily unionized, Bush is carrying the union rank & file vote because they see through Kerry's hypocrisy.
Enough political crap now, let's talk about more important issues such as fine tailored clothing.
Well as my father always said "DNR" stands for "Do Not Read".....LMAO
