'The audacity of taupe': Obama suit creates sartorial stir

US President Barack Obama holds a press conference at the White House in Washington, DC, August 28, 2014The subjects were serious enough at President Barack Obama’s impromptu press conference Thursday, but many viewers and the collective press corps seized on something more immediately visible: his tan suit. The president’s decision to address the media in a breezy, light-colored summer suit swiftly took center stage for many even as he addressed Russian responsibility for rebel actions in Ukraine and ongoing US air strikes against Islamists in Iraq. “Yes we tan!” became the mocking rally cry on social media as Obama gave a statement and then took questions from what some have deemed a horrified press corps. Back in 2012 Obama told Vanity Fair that “I wear only gray or blue suits.” By breaking that promise Thursday — even with what many acknowledge was a sharp-looking, seasonal get-up — Obama inadvertently gave birth to #suitgate.
