For You, Barack: Versace Spring 2009

Donatella Versace, Milan Mens Fashion Week 2008
Everyone knows Barack is one of the best dressed men in the world, as is his wife- Michelle Obama, who is actually on Vanity Fair’s best dressed women in the world list. Soon to be President (as I like to call him) Barack Obama has graced the covers of nearly every men’s fashion magazine including Esquire & GQ.

Donatella Versace has somewhat dedicated her Spring 2009 Collection to our next President- damn, who doesn’t love this man? Versace called Obama “the man of the moment” and said her collection was for “a relaxed man who doesn’t need to flex muscles to show he has power.” Her main point is that men like Obama have inspired her, and she designed the line for a modern man with a laid back relaxed look/attitude.

Check out my top picks from the Versace show:

love the cream cardigan

the shirt dude- the geometric look is hot

the sweater is sick

this is a great everyman’s look- simple chic

I think this is my favorite look, it’s like a preppy badAss look

Barack in GQ

Barack’s political style is unmatched, we all know, love, and embrace it. In his April GQ article Barack talked about his 5 suits and 4 pairs of shoes, but unfortunately Barack’s camp hasn’t divuluged information on the exact labels he wears.

What The Urban Gentleman can take from Barack is that less is more. Classic ALWAYS works, clean high-quality well-tailored suits are literally priceless. Every man should own atleast one really good suit- yeah it may be a splurge, but it’s well worth it. (check out my best places to buy a suit article in the June archives). You can wear it over and over again and it can last a lifetime. Besides, if Barack only needs five main suits at a time, one is plenty for you.

A picture is worth 1000 words.

This is a really cool picture, it shows that Barack Obama is truly a style icon. Look out for an article anaylizing his style- even though he isn’t disclosing brand names, I think I can tell which designers he’s wearing- I’m really good at guessing suits:-)
