Executive Dressing


How “professional” should the President on the United States dress when he’s on the telephone to another world leader discussing a crisis?

According to the Daily News:  “On Saturday, the President spoke with Putin for 90 minutes after Russian troops entered the Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, but many detractors took to social media to rebuke his informal attire.”

In case you were wondering, despite some criticisms of George Washington’s dress (as too fancy, as discussed in Dressing Constitutionally), there is nothing in the Constitution about presidential attire.
