Skip to comments.Barack Obama Is Still Dressing More Presidential Than The Current President

44's wardrobe passes the litmus test for a third term
Heads were scratched when George W. Bush rode to a second term in 2004. Despite Iraq, and despite having the linguistic capability of a GCSE creative writing class, the 43rd president clung onto another four years. That's because, allegedly, he was the man most voters would prefer to have a beer with: 57 percent of them according to a Zogby/Williams poll in the autumn of that year. And though his time in the White House is up, Barack Obama is still dressing the part of post-office beer buddy, too.
At Munich's Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival, number 44 opened proceedings in a suit that wouldn't look out of place on the campaign trail. Comfortable yet slimline suit, a quietly classic watch and, of course, no tie. Nobody can enjoy an exchange with their CEO in the boardroom. But at the pub, sans neckwear, he's just like you and I! Who'd have thought it?!
Or at least that's the intention. When Obama (and indeed, the small army of 2020 candidates) gets stuck in with the normal folk, it's sleeves up, tie off, smiles on. Normality is a much-valued commodity. When in such situations, the former president dresses like a natural in Normal Mode.
It serves as a stark contrast to Donald Trump. Whether in the White House, or headlining a rally in Wyoming, the current president rarely loses the billowing power suit. Trump never relaxes the code for one-on-one mode; the CEO is never dressed for Friday beers. Instead, 45 is usually stood aloft a crowd, businessman garb in full gear, the Eighties management hierarchy firmly in place.

Queer Guy for the Straight Eye...homosexuals are into fashion.
You can put lipstick on a pig, but if it still puts it’s feet up on furniture in the oval office, Trump looks better.
Trump is a little on the heavy side. A polo shirt would not look good on him. I’m completely unsurprised that he’s skipped the fake man-of-the-people BS. Dubya did that stuff while screwing his supporters. People don’t want to have a beer with the president. They want him to look after their interests.
He’s so dreamy!
When is dressing down being presidential.
What joke needed a BARF alert.
Esquire’s circulation figures stink.
And I don’t think its new editor-in-chief has a hope in heck of changing that for the better.
Esquire’s days are numbered.
Esquire, the fag magazine of fashion
Sounds like Chris isn’t the only one getting a thrill up their leg. How lame can you get? Pretty damn lame!
Even when FDR held his fireside chats, he wore a suit and tie.
It's just that he isn't a slob like Obama....which Michelle attests to.
So, the real complaint is that President Trump constantly dresses business formal, rather than sometimes dressing down.
Judge ye a man by the clothes he wears.
Judge I a man by the load he bears.
These are the FREAKS who vote for a president because of the way he dresses...UNBELIEVABLE.
The rolled up sleeves look, I guess to convey the message of “gee, look how hard I’ve been working”, was so fake looking on bammy.
Are “mom jeans” the new Presidential outfit?
Huh????? Has there been, probably since Eisenhower, a Pres who spent more time dressed in a suit and tie than President Trump does?
President Trump is the better dresser. ALWAYS has been and that he always surrounded by hot women.
Ha! Spit my coffee...
Thanks for the post, twister881.
Made my morning.
