  1. The Tie Dimple

For those who have an appreciation for elegance,  the tie dimple is a hidden gem for a well-executed  tie knot. The tie dimple is the slight hollowness that  appears right below the knot. Obama is a true  master of this exercise. Rarely will you catch him  without one. Details can set a man apart and the tie  dimple is one of those small things that can go a long way.

  1. The Overcoat

The overcoat is arguably one of Obama’s signature looks. He’s typically spotted in a simple, three quarter length, black wool overcoat. Don’t forget the matching scarf and gloves. When it’s cold outside, the only acceptable outerwear with a suit is an overcoat.

  1. The Earth Tone Suit

Very rarely do you see a President step away from the conservative blues and greys. Obama is one of the only to do it and he did it well. Despite the uproar, there’s nothing wild, wrong, or crazy about a tan suit; as long as it is worn at the appropriate time – summer -- with matching brown shoes and belt. This bold move complimented his style and personality well.

  1. The Business Casual Look

Typically, we envision a President dressed in a 2  button suit and tie standing at a podium. Barack  consistently embraced his casual moments and he  did it well. His custom tailored chinos and shirts  with the top button undone was his most common look. For an even more relaxed look, rolled up cuffs  are never a bad idea.

  1. The Black Tie Look 

Elegance, class, and style sums up this one. Obama has been spotted in several black tie looks. In this photo, he has front, satin peak lapels. The satin one button and lining of the suit pockets add a nice touch.

Bonus: The first lady, Michelle Obama, is the hidden gem to Barack’s fashionable presidency. They complement each other very well and individually she is a style leader. It is generally said, "the best compliment to a nice suit is a beautiful lady that brightens up the room" It is fair to also assume that she is his indirect style adviser, no different than many other happy marriages. Michelle probably helps with those little moments providing valuable feedback.. Those moments when Barack ask, “Babes, which shoes do you like better with this look? and/or Tane Suit or Navy?"
