You've seen it before: the crisp white button-down. Neatly tailored dark suit. Red or blue tie in a Double Windsor knot. Flag lapel pin. This is the uniform of every male politician in the Western world, a modern marvel of sartorial science that beams reassurances of competence and conformity into the brainpan of every person in the room. Ever seen a G-20 group photo? It's two women, the King of Saudi Arabia and 17 guys wearing this outfit. Too much deviation from the norm think Rick Santorum's sweater vests, Barack Obama's mom jeans and Bill Clinton's short shorts and an inspirational leader risks becoming an object of ridicule. Don't do it, gentlemen. You know who wears fancy duds? Divas and dictators.
