'You are not the President of Sears': Obama lampooned online for tan suit
By RYAN GORMAN
U.S. President Barack Obama took a tough stand on Russia and the Islamic State, but all anyone remembers from his press conference is a tan suit.
Obama has stuck to a regimen of dark-colored suits since becoming commander-in-chief. Black, blue, dark blue, grey – those have been his colors.
White House reporters and presidential watchers have become so used to Obama's dark suits that the light brown getup was jarring to many.
Obama is talking about ISIS, Ukraine, immigration and more here. You know, "news." Yet people are talking about a tan suit...- Lou (@dubois) August 28, 2014

This is not the first time the leader of the free world's fashion sense, or lack thereof, has been ridiculed.
Jokes about Obama's baggy "mom jeans" have been making the rounds since he first appeared in them during the first few months of his presidency.
Really not liking this Obama tan suit. Sends the wrong signals to our allies.- Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) August 28, 2014
Even conservative blogger Michelle Malkin got in on the action.
I don't care that Obama's suit is tan. The problem with the suit is that it's EMPTY.- Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) August 28, 2014
Despite the faux outrage, this isn't the first time President Obama has worn a tan suit, according to the Boston Globe's Matt Viser.
