With an admirable eye for detail the Guardian’s Jess Cartner-Morley has being giving the US presidential candidate’s dress sense the once over:
Barack Obama‘s own wardrobe has been striking in its simplicity. His trademark is a slim-fitting black suit, and a sense of spit and polish; a very starched white shirt, a very shiny dark shoe. The dark tailoring gives him gravitas, and – in photos at least – adds presence to his slim figure.
I must admit Barack Obama does cut quite a dash in the sartorial wasteland of US politics, his dark, slim-fitting suit has become his trademark and defines him as someone modern and efficient.
