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:
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.
