Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are in the last weeks of their campaign for the White House, and the duo hit Las Vegas to talk to supporters. One thing about their appearance in Sin City that was notable was their, well, appearance.
In these last stages of the campaign, the two are definitely playing up their “just like us” image. One that is a departure fashionwise, especially for Mitt Romney. Esquire noted his style change from CEO to a more dressed down demeanor saying that he had a “newer, everyman-inspired wardrobe.”
There is much thought put into their appearances for rallies, paying close attention to the old adage that, “clothes make the man.”
Check out what they wore to their recent rally and what their choice of outfits said about them, or better yet, what they hope their ensembles say about them.
Romney’s Tie 1 of 5Mitt Romney wore a steel gray tie that was "all business." A proper looking tie for a CEO.
The Sleeves 2 of 5Mitt, attempting to appear as "one of the people," had his sleeves rolled up. Or you could also say that he is presenting himself as one who is ready to get down to do hard work.
The Pants 3 of 5Romney continued his "CEO" like attire with a pair of black slacks. It's a look that is confident, simple and very much business.
Ryan’s Tie 4 of 5Ryan went with a pink tie, perhaps a nod to the women, a part of the population that both he and Mitt are trying to snag.
Khakis 5 of 5Ryan wore a pair of casual khakis to the rally, attempting to give a casual impression.
