After days of speculation about what our 46th President would wear for his swearing-in ceremony and inauguration in Washington DC, it was confirmed that Joe Biden chose Ralph Lauren. (He may have given us clues while wearing a polo shirt for his two televised COVID vaccinations!) The American designer created him a custom navy suit and dark blue coat, which he completed with a satin blue tie and a woolen scarf to look at Attending church services in the Cathedral of the Apostle Matthew with congress leaders. This is the first of many events for the president-elect for which he will likely be left in his original outfit. The look is said to have been made at Rochester Tailored Clothing in Rochester, NY.
President Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, stood by the aspiring designer Markarian and also chose the color blue. Together, Jill and Joe made a fashion statement, even if it won’t be the most important thing they make today. (After all, Biden is about to deliver the most critical speech of his life.) With Jill campaigning for an emerging artist with great talent, proving that like Michelle Obama, she will continue to recognize and celebrate designers for her recognition and Joe honors a pure American, impartial brand that represents the long history of fashion in our country and also had moments with Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Reagan. With their outfits, Joe and Jill successfully ode to positive tradition and welcome it into a new era in which there is room for everyone.
