Last Thursday, after returning from vacation, Barack Obama appeared in a beige suit that generated much controversy in social networks; the President of USA, in 2012 told Vanity Fair magazine "I use only gray and blue suits", but is it really so important such choice of attire?
At the hearing on Thursday after his questionable vacations, President Obama speak of really complex issues, all in the White House expected announcements about what action to take about the jihadist threat and the crisis in Ukraine or immigration issues, but everything was in the background due to their choice of attire.
The question: What Obama wears ?, generated tens of thousands of comments on social networks, was the subject of discussion on major TV programs and made headlines in every newspaper.
In the interview with "Vanity Fair" in 2012 said: ".. I try to minimize the decisions because I do not want to make decisions about what I have to eat or how I have to dress because I have many other decisions to make," yet to break his "dress code" and, in general, is expected of a politician in Washington: dark suit, white shirt and blue or red tie, Obama will have a lot more things to think about, at least for a few days.
"Now Obama knows what women in power suffers", "Obama now knows how Hillary feels" ...
Are some comments from Twitter users referencing the stylistic scrutiny to which women are subjected in the world of politics, including the current first lady.
Michelle Obama has given much more to talk about fashion commentators to her husband. She is almost always right, has popularized the sleeveless dresses and court shoes, with low heel tip.
It is unclear wheter if the already famous “tan suite” of the president was approved by the first lady, but it is more than clear the dissapproval of some journalists, which by barely seeing the attire started a barrage of sharp comments:
"Obama promises to defeat whoever made him wear that suit," tweeted Josh Barro, political correspondent for the "New York Times".
"The president announced that we were going to war while we were busy joking about this terrible suit?" asked the journalist for the "New York Times".
The popular reporter also supported more generalized comments about Obama's suit:
The inappropriateness of wearing a color between beige and khaki ("a very militar colour", was noted on social networks") in a press conference in which the most expected announce was whether if USA would send troops to Syria to combat against the ISIS jihadists.
The renowned political journalist of "Washington Post", Wesley Lowery, was not far behind and wrote:
“Who gave Obama that old suit meant for church and taken from my old's father closet?”
Lowery was not entirely wrong in his comments since the last time President Obama was seen wearing a suit of that color was in celebration of Easter Sunday this year.
While fashion gurus state that in the United States, the last day of the year when you can wear white or light colors is the "Labor Day", the first Monday in September, marking the practical end of summer in the country, it could be said that the suit Obama chose is at least commensurate with the time of year, according to this criterion.
The expert fashion from the "Post" Robin Givhan believes that "it is a perfectly appropriate color for the summer"
Comments defense or against President Obama suit, range from a favorable “fashion industry applauds Obama's tan suite” to a heavy "Obama ashames the United States wearing his extravagant beige suit”
"I'm ready to stop wearing suits for a few days," said President Barack Obama told reporters before leaving for summer vacation.
Although he most likely never imagine that his return to the suits would be even more controversial than its much-criticized layout courses and international crisis.
The most veterans tell that, besides last Easter, Obama didn't wore that suit since his Senator times. While a senior official revealed to journalist Susan Page of "USA Today" that President Obama " loves that suit."
