Maryland Governor Michael Steele

On the right, Michael Steele, former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, does something rare among politicians: flaunt a bespoke suit by leaving not just one, but two, sleeve buttons undone.   On another occasion, he has even worn a shirt with a spread collar in a contrasting color.  As if being a prominent black Republican wasn’t enough to make him an outlier.

  1. Interesting.

    In Italy most of sharp people take a hard look to whom that leaves undone the sleeve buttons.

    It’s a sign of ostentation, therefore awkward.
