In honor of today, August 4th being Barack Hussein Obama II birthday, we thought it would be fitting for us to pay tribute to him as our latest Style Salute recipient. Barack Obama is the 44th and current President of the United States, as well as the first African American to hold the office. However more importantly he might be renowned as the best dressed man to ever take control of the oval office; well at least since JFK was the man patrolling the room back in the 60s. Barack is known for his smile, his charismatic charm, and what is known as “The Obama Suit”. The Obama Suit 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.
That being said our Style Salute to Barack is not just about his finely tailored suits but we also take you on a trip down memory lane and check out the style our president had as a youngster.
