Barack Obama's Trademark Suit Has Everyone Talking

By

The suit that Barack Obama has been sporting is grabbing the attention of style magazines and average guys alike. His suits are custom tailored by Hartmarx, which is a 121 year old Chicago based company and the largest suit maker in the United States. Since Obama has made his particular suit popular, even the Hartmarx CEO has started to wear them. The Obama suit, as it is often called, is always the same style and material -- a two-button, single-breasted suit jacket and single pleated pant with inch-and-a-quarter cuffs, and is made of a 97% worsted wool and 3% cashmere blend.

And I certainly wish more men would dress like Barack Obama. His look is classy, yet refreshingly simple -- dark suits, a white dress shirt and a gorgeous blue or red tie (most of the time). His suits are tailored to fit giving him a nice slim silhouette. When he is being casual, he simply takes off his suit jacket and roles up his sleeves to mid-forearm -- no fuss yet always looking sharp. Take note guys!
