Paul Ryan, Fashion Victim

Forget GOP vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan (R-Cheesehead) as Budget Victim. New York magazine’s The Cut (via The Missus) has tagged him as Fashion Victim:

Everyone Agrees: Paul Ryan’s Style Is Awkward

Now that Americans have had a couple days to mull over Paul Ryan and the novelty of his pomaded widow’s peak (oh, and hey, P90X sales are up!), the reviews of his wardrobe choices are in, and they’re not good. Long story short, his clothes are too big, and he should get a good tailor so the world can ogle his abs more freely (and stop likening his suit to a garbage bag, as Esquire‘s Kurt Soller did). While clueless dressing might be an “everyman” move, let’s be honest: No one wants to see a perfectly attractive guy wearing awkward dad pants while he talks about budgets on TV. (On a positive note, everyone shares this opinion. Unity!) We have rounded up the most damning — i.e., entertaining — descriptions of his wardrobe, below.  [Update: The Cut’s Kat Stoeffel defends Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin shoes.]

This campaign is not just getting ugly. It’s getting unstylish too.

  1. Odd that a complete phony has issues dressing normally.

    Also behaving: heard him tell an interviewer – completely seriously — who offered him a brownie or something, “I don’t eat sweets.” Oh, ok Paul Bunyan.

    Bet the GOP is pining for the days of W. Their platform requires a true BS artist — not these transparent sit-in-the-front-of-the-class suck-ups.

    On one side of this election we have the sit-in-the-front-of-the-class suck-up who’s obviously lying, and the sit-in-the-front-of-the-class suck-up who looks like he may be deranged enough to actually believe what he’s saying…maybe.

    On the other we have the sit-in-the-front-of-the-class suck-up who sneaks out for a smoke when no one is looking, and the, uh…Joe Biden. Did he even go to class?

    Biden. Let’s vote for Biden. Screw the sit-in-the-front-of-the-class suck-ups; vote for the guy who missed class because he woke up on the couch in some older female college administrator’s apartment. That’s our man. The real American.

    Biden 2012.

    Was that the Energizer Bunny that just zipped through?

    Did you notice how quickly Ryan started wearing the Romney uniform of tieless checked dress shirts for than casual, “man of the people” look? It reminds me of his choice of Kerry Healey as Lt Gov, when they would appear at events similarly attired as if a matched bride and groom on a wedding cake. I swear he chose her for the look as much for her husband’s money.
