The Dude’s a Biden

Joe Biden

Regardless of one’s politics, it’s hard to deny that in choosing Joseph Biden as his running mate, Barack Obama picked the best-dressed man in the Senate.  Admittedly, there’s not much competition for that title, but Biden stands out due to his willingness to wear form-fitting suits in a shade other than blue or gray, fun suspenders, pocket squares, casual shirts with the top two buttons undone, and, in the winter, a chesterfield coat with a velvet collar.   And in what is perhaps a bold statement about his foreign policy, he often wears shirts with French freedom cuffs.

    Before Obama, I admittedly didn’t know much about Biden or his style (not that I know much more now), but check out this pic from 1976 off the treehugger.com blog:

    Now that’s a smooth operator in my opinion…

    And I remember when he had his hair transplant, which he never tried to hide.
