Truman Says

Obama bedazzled on his big night


He's publicly claimed that he's already decided what he'll wear on inauguration night (a Hart Schaffner Marx tux), but that didn't stop a slew of menswear designers from weighing in on how they'd dress Obama for the big night.

Styles range from the most formal of formal with coat tails from Rag & Bone to a double breasted number with an open collared shirt and no tie. While they're all well and good and amp up Obama's style in exactly the fresh, modern way required for a young President, we have our favorite: the sparkled dinner jacket from Richard James Savile Row. It's such a stuffy affair, the inauguration. Let's see some pizzazz! Some wow! Anything sequined for God's sake!

Here's to wishful thinking. Check out WWD to see the complete gallery of designer sketches.
