    I wonder: who dresses Barrack?

    The dresses are small potatoes. Which costs more (including furnishings, upkeep, etc...) The White House or Buckingham Palace?

    I digress from the original topic but I have been wondering...if the cut of TF suits is so popular why hasn't anyone replicated the cut at a cheaper price point?

    It's a shame Barack didn't spend more on his suit.

    Zegna Milano cut is pretty damn close and made by the same manufacturer using the same fabrics.

    Price range?

    The "Spurr" line, if I recall correctly, is $1500-$2000. Simon Spurr, the main line, is more in the neighborhood of Tom Ford's price point, but still not as much.

    Michelle is a beast. Granted she looks less horrible in the op pic
    than usual, but to suggest that she is anything other than ugly
    is absurd.

    A little truth on your side, she didn't pay the Secret Service out of her pocket, of course:

    I think airfare as well is payed for by the taxpayer as they're on government planes, you're not going to see them waiting in line for a United flight or anything.

    Additionally, I wonder if she claims any of these expenses as tax deductions... [​IMG]

    I couldn't care less about Ms. Obama's choice of tailor or how much her dresses cost; however, to my eye, the dress in the pic is ugly and very unflattering on her.
