Rick Santorum – Honestly, This Looks Hokey

Congressman Santorum – Honestly, those baggy jeans and that grandpa sweater vest when worn together go way beyond the pale. It makes you look downright hokey and not clued in.

Remembering the storm that surrounded President Obama’s “unfashionable” jeans a few years back, I feel compelled to make a comparison. The President was advised to have jeans that were fitted and snug so he would look more fashionable and with it. I disagreed then and I disagree now. Fashion looks are the opposite of power looks, and no person in power needs to look sexy first, and powerful second. However, they needn’t look thoroughly unfashionable. Obama’s jean were loose enough to be comfortable without looking rumpled and baggy.

Incidentally, it’s okay to be covertly sexy, and that’s what happens when men wear beautifully-tailored dark suits with power shirts and ties. Conversely, ill-fitting sack-style suits are about as un-sexy as can be; and coming in second are really baggy jeans.

I have to be honest and say that Santorum’s jeans just make him look plump and out of shape.

If you aspire to a position of power, stick to power suits.
