Sketches Fit for a Prez

While everybody is clamoring to dress the soon-to-be first lady, there is no shortage of people trying to get their duds on the president-elect. I got my hands on some of the sketches that were sent his way.

Reem Acra went all out and sent sketches for the whole Obama family. I must say, there are all uber-fabulous. I even like Michelle's hairstyle! The girls dresses are a little buttoned up, but they are all chic.
No surprise, Mr. Vote or Die, Diddy submitted designs from his Sean John fashion house. The tux is classic and it definitely has that Sean John swagger!
Rag & Bone took it old school with the tux with tails. It's a very classic, old Hollywood look.

Nautica kept their designs classic. Their suit features clean lines and single button coat. It's their vision for Obama's daytime look.
It's no secret, I love Marc Jacobs! He didn't disappoint with is vision for the future commander in chief. It's a classic tux but, the lines are definitely updated to be more modern.
Kenneth Cole presented some definite swagger with his sketch. I love the scarf. That's a look Barack Obama could absolutely pull off without effort. Love it!
Salvatore Ferragamo has been around for what seems like forever but there is nothing dated about the tux they presented to Mr. Obama. They went for an update in the lapel to give the suit a fresh look.
Elle Tahari worked it out from the wide lapels to the wing tipped shoes.
DSquared put their unique spin on the tux for the president elect. They went old school with the tails but, that's about where the "old" school ended. The twins put their unique twist on the tails look with a jacket that seems a bit shorter and a suit that seems overall more detailed.
I'll end it with the classiness that is Brooks Brothers.... they always deliver and they didn't disappoint with this sophisticated tux. Love it. Do you have a favorite of the many submissions?
