Suit Maker Capitalizes on Barack Obama Affiliation. Finally.

By

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]
