For the second time this week the ususally unstylish world of politics has made it onto fashion blogs like this one. First of all Sarah Palin wore a pair of jeans to show that she was a regular type of gal who doesn’t normally spend $150K on her wardrobe. And now Barack Obama is in the news for replacing the undeniably crappy pair of mid-blue tapered “dad” jeans (see below) that he wore earlier this year with a vaguely more acceptable pair of “hip dad” straight leg jeans (see above) that he wore earlier this week. Who would have thought that denim would have made such an impact on the campaign trail.
