    Ronald Regan was a stylish actor and ex-President like JFK. Regan worned windsor knots on neckties, spread collar shirts, stylish conservative suits. Turnbull & Asser, and Brooks Brothers shirts, etc.

    Is the color distorted? I never remember Reagan wearing a glen plaid that was so loud as to
    look almost like a tartan.

    I meant to say Regan was an actor before politics. JFK was never an actor. Sorry about being misunderstanding my last post.

    I dug around a bit and it appears to be correct. Here's another shot from a different source. The year was 1982.

    Here's another picture from 1981.

    say what you will about old Ronnie, the guy knew what looked good on him. I think he also purposely tried to match or complement Maggie's outfits, knowing it would make for more aesthetically pleasing photos.

    He was a perfect 42(I've read) and preferred button flies on his trousers...old school.

    You were right the first time. All presidents are actors.

    Dali looked great before he went overboard with the moustache.

    That picture from Mr. Foxx is Bogart, no?
