So, I've done a little digging and found out what both candidates prefer to wear and how well they wear it!
Mitt Romney, the conservative inside and out, always neatly dressed, and I can safely say looking very handsome in the classic tailoring style we could see from day one of his campaign, has quite a few pairs of eyes on him, trying to figure out what it is that he is wearing!
According to Ask Andy About Clothes forum commenter, Mitt Romney’s suits are "of a conservative style so they’re probably high-end Brooks Brothers, Hickey Freeman or another American maker."
All Things Fashion DC wrote in their blog that, “Romney [often] sports [an] Oxford button down with a Brooks Brothers or Nordstrom suit. A suit from Nordstrom can cost anywhere between $600-1900.” I guess we shouldn't be surprised, considering how wealthy he is.
According to Philly Post, he did have a few 'bad suit' days with too long sleeves or too tight collar.
All in all however, Mitt Romney looks conservative, stylish and subtle, making him an ideal Conservative candidate. He knows what to wear, where and when to wear it. Here is a photo of him; do you agree that he knows what's he doing (of course fashion wise!)?
As for the current president's brand of suit, it was a lot easier to find! He is favouring an American brand, called Hart Schaffner Marx and also wears Hickey Freeman suits. They are high end brands and can cost from $1495 up to an astronomical $3000.
It is easy to see that Republicans and Democrats favour American brands, which is understandable, of course, almost all politicians want to shout that they are all about American quality and American values.
I came across a very funny article on FT blog about the things Barack Obama has in common with Kate Moss. It is quite interesting that they both decided to wear toned down clothes, grey or navy, for completely different reasons....tut, tut Mr. Obama, aren't we getting a little lazy in the mornings?
Anyhow, they both look great (especially when the whole world is looking), though from the pictures one can find on the internet, Mr. Obama sometimes does look a tad untidy (but then again, I did mention that Mr. Romney has his bad days too).
Don't we all though? So, care to share what you all think about both candidates? Which one looks better?
This is what I think about it:
