"As the fashion designers noted with dismay, his business suits fail to conform to current Ivy League fashion in several respects."
"The Kennedy suit is, says Harris, "modern conservative." There is no padding in the shoulders, partly because padding is no longer in style but mainly because the President is broad-shouldered and needs none. The jackets have two buttons instead of the usual three because John Kennedy prefers to wear them that way (and also, says Sam Harris, because Sam Harris prefers to make them that way). Recent reports indicate that two-button suits are coming back into style anyhow, probably owing to the President's example. Harris insists that the presidential lapels are neither too wide nor too narrow; they are, he says, "medium conservative." They are definitely not in the skinny Ivy League mode, however. Neither are the trousers, which are just slightly on the narrow side."
