Gallery: Barack Obama’s style in pictures

By admin on November 5th, 2008

So the news is in and the votes have been counted. Barack Obama is now the US president but he was always undisputedly the most stylish candidate in the race.
His trademark tall and lean look is accentuated by his uniform of slim-fitting suits and petrol blue fabric which complemented his colouring perfectly. There was a lot of fuss made over his wife Michelle’s sharp sartorial decisions but here is the man himself in picutres.

Jess Cartner Morley dissects Barack Obama’s style

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.

US men’s fashion experts are hoping that David Beckham will inject a bit of style into the sporting world in America. "Hopefully it will inspire them to lift their game," said
Adam Rapoport, style editor at men’s fashion magazine GQ. "I
think athletes respond to competition well. If someone’s
looking better than them they want to get on par with them." Despite not yet arriving in the US Beckham has already appeared on the cover of US men’s style mag Details. Wendell Brown, senior fashion editor at Esquire, explained how US sports stars need sartorial guidance: "Desperately. And they’re in need of a tailor, I
hope Beckham has a major impact."
