    Over recent years, I have noticed that Gerald Ford wears a distinct-looking suit, with notch lapels that are somewhat rounded in appearance. In interviews over recent years he seems to be outfitted quite well.

    Does anyone out there know who makes suits for the former president? I think he looks dressed quite well, especially considering he's 91 years old.

    Georges de Paris? Suits left over from Ford's White House days?

    By the way, I saw GDParis driving this past weekend in downtown DC. He drives one of those huge Cadillacs made about 20 years ago. He's quite a sight with all that white hair -- you can really see him coming with that hair and the big, big car.

    Anyone ever see the SNL episode when Dana Carvey was doing Tom Brokaw prerecording different scenarios for Gerald Ford's death?

    Hilarious. Morbid, but still hilarious.

    Definitely not suits from his term in office. Different, but nice-looking fabrics, fit him well.

    "Gerald Ford dead today after being mauled by a tiger."

    Back from the days when SNL was funny.

    Ford was a victim of timing and circumstances: he is a lot smarter than people often give him credit for.  And he had to be president in the mid-70s, one of the worst from a clothing point of view.  Suit fabrics and cuts were dreadful, and the ties huge.  

    I saw President Ford a few years ago and he was dressed quite well.

    Yep. Funny stuff. Looks like you can find anything on the Internet.

    Great bit. Sorry I never saw it on the air. Most of the times I've seen Gerald Ford he's been wearing hideous green or yellow blazers, so I'm glad to hear he has a nice suit. [​IMG]
