The tone of that tine really shined with the lightning he was under. Any idea what brand name tie he was wearing? or what suit he had on?

Thanks

Barack's clothes have never interested me. Russian President Medevev is a much better dresser.

I believe the Senator's suit was bespoke, crafted from the dissapointed ambitions of the Republican party. His shoes were the vegetable tanned hopes and dreams of the Christian Right, which I believe he purchased from Brooks Brothers.

The Hart Schaffner Marx suits are sold at retail as the Gold Trumpeter collection. In department stores, they go for $1,500 apiece.

Now, Obama has bought two more of the suits in blue and three in gray -- all the same silhouette and material -- single-breasted, 97 percent worsted wool and 3 percent cashmere. The pleated pants have an inch-and-a-quarter cuffs.

$9000 worth of completely uninspiring mediocrity.
