Barack Obama: Pictures of His Designer Choices for the Inauguration

So, just like they did for Michelle and the girls, WWD (Womans Wear Daily) asked designers what should President-Elect Barack Obama wear to the Inauguration. And here’s some choices below, which ones are your favorites?

Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brother

D-Sqaured

Zegna

Kenneth Cole

Marc Jacobs

Nautica

Paul Smith

Rag & Bone

Richard James

Salvatore Ferregamo

Sean John

Sean John 2

Tommy Hilfiger

Thom Brown

Tim Hamilton

View all 55 designs here.

Out of them all my favorite is probably the Zegna suits. But as you can obviosuly see its harder to pick out a man’s suit from designer sketches than it is to choose a woman’s dress. Men’s suits are all about the look, feel, and fit of the suit. The fabric used is a vital element and pictures just can’t give you an adequate view of them. That said, these designers did a pretty good job in individualizing their styles and clearly whichever suit he chooses will be exquisite.

RUNWAY TO CHANGE: Barack Obama

I love this sign! All the smart Republicans
are voting for Obama.

OMG! I’m soooooooooooooooooo rediculously excited about Barack Obama. I mean, he’s going to win, he’s g-o-i-n-g to win and I’m so excited about this fact. I remember in the beginning there were so many haters and nay-sayers, and I remember asking them all “Why are you doubting, if you’re for him, like you say you are, then why all the haterization?”. But now with every single poll in the world showing that Obama is up by like 10-12 points- there is NO doubt in my mind. Okay, I know this isn’t a political blog, but after seeing all the custom made Barack Obama t-shirts just now, made by fashion designers, I just got really excited. It’s like who ISN’T for Barack Obama? The whole world is for this guy- it’s every continent in the world vs a little under half of the United States…. and that little under a half is truly comprised of a bunch of ignorant people, rich out-of-touch people, die-hard Republicans, etc etc.

Okay, if I don’t stop myself I can keep going on and on. Anyway, I just wanted to display some the custom made designs… because I didn’t realize that all these designers had made shirts:


Pharrell Williams for Barack Obama
” Obama Stands Out From the Crowd T-shirt”
$60, buy it here.

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter for Barack Obama
“Change Black T-Shirt”
$60, buy it here.


Russell Simmons for Barack Obama
“America Deserves Better Mens White T-shirt”
$60, buy it here.
Those are all the shirts made by male designers (who make men’s clothes), but there are tons more by some of the best fashion designers: Tracy Reese, Alexander Wang, Zac Posen, Tory Burch, etc. Check them all out here. I’ve had the official Barack Obama campaign shirts and buttons since Barack came to Georgia Tech Spring 2007. Since then I hadn’t really gotten anymore BO gear, but I feel I need more to preserve history and to give some vintage Barack Obama shirts to my grandkids, lol. So for that reason I ordered some “Barack the Vote” tees last week (barackawear.com), I’m going to buy more official Barack Obama gear (buttons, shirts, etc) from his site (barackobama.com), I’ll head to karmaloop.com or urbanoutfitters.com and get me a more “hip-hop” obama shirt, and I’ll buy some Barack Obama stuff from the man with the Barack Obama stand in Union Sqaure (New York). I know I’m doing alot, but I just can’t contain myself!
So in closing, go vote! And like I always tell people “Don’t just vote, VOTE for Barack Obama”. I voted 3 weeks ago when I went back to Georgia. The line was crazy- I took pictures on my phone, but I haven’t been able to upload it yet. So all you Georgians need to go vote now because I can only imagine the turn out on Nov.4th… check online to see where you need to vote because each county is different. (If you’re registered in DeKalb County go vote at the DMV place off Memorial Drive) …. I think Georgia may become a blue state because the polling place was filled with sooooooo many people, many of whom had not ever voted before.

Alrighty, I’ll stop writing… have a great day guys! Urban Gentleman for Barack Obama! Lol.
