Paul Ryan: Lacking Fashion & Style - Graded C- at Best

His clothing is far to baggy. Isn't he supposed to be fit and in shape? Instead he looks like a couple biceps stuck into a potato sack.

Although it has been over a week since Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as his running mate, the media is still talking about the first appearance of the Vice Presidential nominee of the Republican party. One fashion blog in particular took a closer look at his wardrobe choices. Image consultant and freelance fashion blogger, Ashley Child, went into much detail when criticizing Ryan's wardrobe choices. In her recent blog post she points in much detail what went wrong from a sartorial point of view, and she didn't hold back when criticizing Ryan's poor wardrobe choices for, what she calls, "his most important event in his career".

"His clothing is far to baggy. Isn't he supposed to be fit and in shape? Instead he looks like a couple biceps stuck into a potato sack", says Ashley Child. She is not alone with her statement. Other fashion bloggers have also pointed out Ryan's poorly tailored clothing, but while they keep their criticisms at bay, Ms Child has removed all her filters. "The nomination took place in 88 degree and 40% humidity, yet he chose to wear woolen pants, blazer, and dress shirt. I simply can't understand why someone would choose to be both unfashionable and uncomfortable - both at the same time", she points out.

It's not just the baggy clothes and unseasonal fabric choices that got Ms Child worked up. "From his hair-sprayed coif that could withstand a hurricane down to his bulky square front shoes, there is nothing fashionable about the way he dressed", she states. In fact, the only positive thing she could say about his look was "It is clear that he wants to appear to "Joe the Plumber", but she follows up asking "but wouldn't you want to hold a Vice President of one of the most powerful nations to a higher standard?"

It is not the first time that online tie retailer and men's fashion blog,, has taken a stance on fashion in politics. In the past, the retailer has addressed why politicians always wear red ties, has awarded the best tie wearers in congress, and even has given the the average Joe tips on how to dress like a president.
