However before we get too sensitive and emotional over the last couple of days we still have with the Obama’s, let’s talk about how great of style he’s had over the years. From shopping at the Gap, and his help in the rise of the Dad caps, President Barack Obama has managed to make it through his two presidential terms in style and setting trends. It’s safe to say that Obama has earned the right to be called one of the best-dressed, if not then definitely the only President t swag.hats ever existed to have SWAG.
Let’s take a look back at some of The POTUS most stylish looks.
Of course, Obama knows how to do black tie right. During his UK state visit in 2011, Obama was dressed to impress in a dapper tailcoat, joining the Queen, FLOTUS, and other royalty at the Buckingham Palace for an honorary banquet.
Even in casual attire, Obama was always on point and in season. Pairing together dark jeans with a lighter wash button up shirt, Obama effortlessly puts together the perfect modern day take on the denim-on-denim look.

Hey you guys, hope you aren’t looking forward to buying any Trump gear from Macy’s because in the words of the unfortunate President to be… “Your Fired”!. Yes, Macy’s has completely pulled the plug on their relationship with Donald Trump and all of his products and menswear. Trump might have won the presidency “fair and square”, but he hasn’t won over Macy’s. Last year, after the crude comments he made against Mexican immigrants basically saying that they’re, “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” Macy’s who was once the main retailer for all of Trump retail merchandise from ties, dress shirts, and other menswear gear, ended ties with the former Apprentice host.
At the time, a representative from Macy’s stated, “In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which is inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”
As of recently in confirmation to the decision made last year to cut ties with Trump, Macy’s Chairman Terry Lundgren assured that the company will continue to stand by their original decision. In an interview with The Street, Lundgren said,
“As I have said, we wouldn’t carry product from a political candidate—and now a politician—whether they be Republican or Democrat. If Hillary Clinton had a line of women’s suits or handbags I wouldn’t carry those either. I just think we don’t want to be a politically associated company, we sell to everybody at Macy’s and have a broad and diverse customer base.”
So basically, he sweetened the drop of Trump merchandise in a way that is politically correct, I guess… but anyways don’t expect to see any future candidates merchandise coming to a Macy’s near you, either. So Kanye if you’re really going to run in 2020 we’re going to need for you to open up shop somewhere else lol, your dope for reading.

For those who don’t know who Dash Snow is the Bronx native is widely regarded as one of the most influential graffiti writers of all time, whose fondness for painting subway trains (over 5,000 in total) earned him the title “King of Graffiti” in the early ’80s. Rather than appropriating known graffiti or giving in to any particular style or trends, Blade painted an imaginative approach to his many works, playing with perspective, abstraction and geometry.
