Parsing President Obama's personal style through the photos his team has uploaded to Flickr, The Moment's Joshua Stein writes: "Barack Obama sticks to his outfits as ardently as he does to Axelrod’s talking points. If he advocates change, he does so with an unswerving sartorial consistency. Note his point collars. In nearly every one of the 291 photos President Obama is wearing a white, broadcloth dress shirt with a breast pocket and a crisp straight-point collar. Like his policy decisions thus far, the formal straight collar is a resilient and adaptable choice." He also appears to own only two pairs of shoes. [The Moment]
