Presidential Fashion Update
This morning Scott‘s introducing the Ablution Art Appreciation Academy, but he also posts that John Lichfield, the Independent’s “Man in Paris,” thinks that President Bush is a hypocrite, because he wears “a French-made suit”, b y a tailor named George de Paris (really. That’s his real name). Therefore my assessment that the debaters both hit Barney’s on the first day of the semi-annual sale, wearing identical outfits was incorrect. John Lichfield is also wrong, too. Georges de Paris is not only a naturalized American citizen, he’s been working from DC for decades.
Apparently George’s custom-made suits run approx. $4,000, more than Brooks Brothers, comparable to Zegna, and less than Armani. Nice.
And no need to add a poncho, either.
