Sartorial Sins

Suit, tie & shirt combinations

President, Obama, President Clinton, Prince Albert:  please take note that you’ve broken one of the most sacred sartorial rules. One of the the main items, shirt/suit/tie, must have a pattern. To wear three solids, is unimaginative, particularly when all three items are in dark shades. Of the three men, President Clinton comes the closest to …

Michelle Obama- Tres Chic

Michelle Obama looking very chic

President and Mrs. Obama on Inauguration Day, both looking dashing and elegant. Michelle looks especially chic in her Thom Browne blue-checked coat. Later in the day she added her own belt to the coat, but it interrupted the exquisite line of the garment. President Obama, I was hoping you would make a powerful visual statement …

New Hairstyle for Michelle.

Michelle's Bangs

Michelle Obama’s new hairstyle is youthful and fashionable.Love it! One observation:  her hair looks more elegant in the photo on the left, where the hair was blown dry so that it frames her face softly. In the photo on the right, it nearly wants to flip up, so you see the choppy ends. Choppy ends …

Michelle + Anne in Fuchsia

Sandy Dumont discusses candidates' wives in Hot Pink

Let’s face it. Fuchsia (a.k.a. Hot Pink when it is lighter and brighter) is a very flattering color for most women. It makes the face look softer, more feminine and more luminous. Both the First Lady and Mrs. Romney look beautiful and elegant. Mrs. Obama is more formal with her long-sleeve jacket – a change …

President Obama: No More Grey Suits, Please

ObamaGREY

Dear President Obama – Please give up those grey suits. They make you look much older and very tired. Please remember that grey has mostly negative connotations: a grey area, a grey lie, old and grey, sad and grey, tired and grey. Of course, it’s favored by politicians because it personifies a grey area that …

President Obama: Awesome!

Obama gives State of Union address and looks Dynamic

President Obama was in top form last night, and particularly in the arena of image. This is the way the President should dress at all times. The dark suit conveys power and authority, the white shirt is formality but also very elegant and refined. And there is only one tie that is more powerful than …

Michelle Obama: Regal in Royal Blue

Mrs. Obama at State of Union Address

It”s no wonder this color has been dubbed Royal Blue.  It is one of the loveliest colors Mrs. Obama has worn, and she looked exquisite last night at the State of the Union address. I’d like to see the neckline an inch or two lower, however, as the proportions would be more harmonious and flattering.

President Obama, Where’s Your Tie?

President Obama on his recent trip to Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, speaking to a group in Mn.

Dear President Obama, Where is your tie? As President of the United States, you don’t need to dress down for any occasion. You are there to represent the office of the President of the most powerful country in the world. Just as an expert speaker wears a tie (but not a jacket) when he does …

Obama’s Boring Blue Tie

The President of the USA. His looks commented on by The Image Architect, Sandy Dumont.a

The ubiquitous blue tie needs to disappear from the halls of power. It isn’t a power tie!! It’s a country club tie – its origins are the Deep South, where it’s hot and that cool blue shade presumably makes you feel cooler. Mr. President, this tie doesn’t make a statement. Furthermore, wearing a blue tie …

Obama, Ditch Baby Blue Ties

Sandy Dumont, The Image Architect has some advice for Our President, Barack Obama.

Dear Mr. President, There you go again wearing the ever-popular baby blue tie. It may have been popularized by President George Bush, but this is a Palm Beach look, not a power  look. Ties should talk; instead, this one puts you to sleep. Just like a baby in a pastel blue room. Now you know …
