No Presidential Pleats

Barack Obama stepped onto the stage in Chicago Tuesday night in a Hart Schaffner Marx suit, and today the clothier's home page proudly promotes their association with the best-dressed president since JFK (not that there's been all that much competition). HSM suits run $700-$900 and we like the longish slim-fitting jackets, but to us the pleated trousers are a deal-breaker. Maybe pay the extra bucks and go with Hickey Freeman instead.
