The Secret of Obama's Success? He Doesn't Dress Like a "50-Year Old Tax Lawyer"
Associated Press: The Candidates' Closets: No WIndsurfing Gear, by Samantha Critchell:
[I]n his clothing, as in his campaign, Obama could face the charge of elitism for choosing stylish, slim-cut suits with a European look, [Tyler] Thoreson [executive editor of Men.Style.com] says. Thoreson admires the style, which he says shows off Obama's tall, athletic build.
"It shows he's not trying to be like everyone else. It's part of the visual message that he's crafting. In an odd little way, it adds to the authenticity — he's not pandering in a conservative, middle-America suit like a 50-year-old tax lawyer wears," he says.
Ouch. (Hat Tip: Ted Afield.)
