Presidents Style

March 22, 2010

President Barack Obama may not be the most popular president but he is most definitely a stylish president. Being the most powerful person in the world, you should dress and represent yourself appropriately. Obama does that exactly. Every time you see him on TV or in a meeting and etc. he is always wearing a suit. His suits fit him well and his buttons are always buttoned. Even on more casual occasions you will always catch him wearing a tie. Most of the times a red tie which is perhaps my most favorite color for a tie. Red is the color of power and shows confidence in yourself and what you are doing and that is important when you are president. If he is not wearing a tie though he will be at least wearing a navy blazer.The only president that trumps Obama in style is JFK. JFK’s entire persona made him stylish. The way he spoke, his active social life, and his rumored relations with an equally stylish person, Marilyn Monroe. Other stylish presidents are FDR, Nixon, and even Bush. It is hard to tell if any presidents before the 1900s were stylish but I am sure there are some.

Learn to tie a tie.

I met someone over spring break this year that did not know how to tie a tie. He was close to 30. I am sorry but that is absolutely ridiculous. Tying a tie is like learning how to tie your shoe…. its necessary.Every boy should learn how to tie a tie at least before he leaves high school. Learning to tie a tie is almost like a passage to manhood. If one does not know how to tie a tie you are still a boy. A man should also own at least three ties. One solid black, one solid navy, and one red. Those three ties you can wear with just about any shirt and any suit. They are about a necessary as shoes. When you do learn how to tie a tie do not make it sloppy. Make it look nice like you took your time with it. Your tie is what makes your suit fit. Also find a knot that fits you. If you like a skinny knot make it skinny if you like a fat knot then make it fat. The tie is all about you.
