http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/postphotos/style/2005-01-28/1.htm

Dick Cheney, Dressing Down
Friday, January 28, 2005; Page C01
... Cheney stood out in a sea of black-coated world leaders because he was wearing an olive drab parka with a fur-trimmed hood. It is embroidered with his name. It reminded one of the way in which children's clothes are inscribed with their names before they are sent away to camp. And indeed, the vice president looked like an awkward boy amid the well-dressed adults ...

Yes, he looked like hell, it's the kind of parka I wore in the 70s when I was really poor.

However, he might have done so under doctor's recommendation. Remember, his health was horrible.

4. I think it's kind of hideous

but that's apparently the local mode of dress, and it seems like visiting dignitaries are always expected to wear the garb of the host country when posing for photo ops. Obama can pull it off pretty well, but I remember W looking pretty silly in some of those getups, especially the Chinese one. But then, W looks silly no matter what he wears.

If Obama visits Scotland will he wear a kilt? I think kilts are hot.

44. I'm waiting for Trump, Hannity, Palin or one of the other idiots to say that

Obama is wearing a Muslim shirt or some other kind of crap. Here we go.

He looks fantastic!

46. The shirts are beautiful--nicely made with lovely fabric, covered buttons and very flattering

to the President. I esp. like the orange shirt in the 2nd picture. Wish these were sold as tunics for women in the US.

49. Great minds work alike.

See my post No. 37 above hitting the thread two minutes after yours.

The orange really is nice. Do you think that they'd look good in turquoise or teal?

56. Romney

From all these pics that we've been seeing the past few days of our President in Asia, can you even imagine Romney in any of them? I just can't! He is so unworldly - people around the world would not have accepted Romney so warmly. And, Trump had the nerve to say that the rest of the world is laughing at us because President Obama got re-elected! It's the other way around, Trump - the world would have been laughing at us if Romney had gotten elected!

71. He looks like he's 22 in that shirt.

The fit reminds me of the JC Penney catalogue models for menswear way back in the '70's. But in spite of that, he looks great!

72. I actually like it too. Some of the patterned ones in the background of the first pic? Yuck!

So even though its not my favorite look for the Pres, its not too bad.

I wish it were bigger. The "gaping" with the fabric strain that's going on with even the slight degree of movement he's doing in that last pic with the Australian Prime Minister looks perilous! Hope he doesn't bust a button right onto his dinner plate!

to me. I shouldn't have looked at the comments under the picture. They infuriate me. So much hate!!!



I used to live in the Philippines where formal dress shirts are called Barongs. My dad wore them when he went to Filipino events and looked quite dapper. I am reminded of these times seeing my president in this shirt.

85. Obama's Wardrobe

I really like this shirt! It has a nice slim fit quality to it!

I will say also, President Obama really dresses sharp in his suits and ties. I try to base my formal wardrobe off of him! I know in 2008, he wore Hart Schaffner Marx suits, and now that he is President, he has them specially made by a tailor in Washington, but I would love to know where he gets his shirts and ties.

It's a tropical climate. Loud colors are proper. I wonder if Hillary would wear a salwar kameez??
That is every day wear for women in India. Knee length straight (tunic) dress over slacks. With long scarf.

95. Nice! He models it well. I have been seriously starting to sew on a sewing machine I...

got in July. I've started making curtains and taking in hems and seams but I want to get into actually making clothes too. I made a joke on facebook recently about offering to make President Obama's inauguration suit and how it would be great to have a genuine made in American Pres. wearing something I made. I like this pattern though, and the color suits him.

104. I never have figured out how people can wear so MUCH in such hot climes.

Personally, I hate that style of shirt but that's just me. If I was visiting a country and needed to wear the local style I'd do it too. I can't help but wonder how he found one that fit his long, lanky frame. But what gets me is the long sleeves and tightly woven, shiny fabrics. I'd be sweating like mad.

On the other hand, I wish I could spend my LIFE in Punjabi dress! And I love Asian inspired styles.
