Suit Maker Capitalizes on Barack Obama Affiliation. Finally.


We're not sure why this took so long, but Barack Obama's preferred suit maker Hart Schaffner Marx is capitalizing on the president-elect affiliation. They added a box to their homepage that reads, “Dressing Presidential. Pick Your Power Suit. President-elect Barack Obama Found His at Hart Schaffner Marx.” The company will reportedly also launch a "West Wing" collection. WWD seems to think Obama might be the face of the new line, but we think that would just be inappropriate and weird. [WWD]
