Here at Hemingway Tailors, it wasn’t the colour that bothered us, but the fit. It certainly looked rather too big for Obama. The suit clearly wasn’t up to the standards of one of our bespoke suits. However, although a tan suit is not a fashion faux pas in itself, it certainly isn’t suited to stern presidential speeches. We associate darker coloured clothing with authority and power. Light colours, including tan, come across as more casual. The subject of his speech was particularly grim and sombre – a casual, summery suit doesn't give off the best impression.
Hemingway Tailors understands that a suit has to match the occasion. Whether you’re a businessman, a builder or the President of the United States, we’ll create the perfect bespoke tailored suit for your needs. Book your initial consultation today.
