Wherever your political credences reside, it’s undeniable that our new Commander In Chief can also command a suit. At the Inaugural Ball on January 20th, Mr. Obama paired a bowtie along with his tuxedo and, though little is special about a bow tie+tuxedo, this wasn’t just any old bow tie. Rather, it was a custom J.Crew bow tie made specifically for the first family of 100% Italian silk satin. No, you can’t purchased this bow tie (yet), but J.Crew offers an equally sharp black English silk bow tie. Secret service not included.
Editor’s Note: Bow ties aren’t compulsory to formalwear. Match it with a solid shirt, textured trousers, and mull over your candidacy for the next local election.
