Former President Barack Obama is spending his retirement the way most people do: Playing golf. Except when you’re Barack Obama, you get to play golf with other famous people, like Jordan Spieth and Steph Curry.
Aside from overwhelming coolness of that photo, you also probably noticed something else: That Obama finally – mercifully – actually boasted some rather cool on-course stylings. Gone are the cargo shorts and the flimsy hats. Dare I say, he actually looked pretty cool.
It’s been a long journey for him to get to this point, but Republican or Democrat or anything in-between, I think it’s something we can all get behind.
Let’s break it down.
Eesh. The cargo shorts phase. Awful, just awful. The non-golf sunglassesdon’t do much to redeem things, either.
Better, but the dark days of 2008 still held a heavy influence. That shirt, in particular, is looking dangerously parachute-y.
Not much progress made during 2010, with flimsy hats still a ever-present fixture in the wardrobe.
Years passed, but precious little progress.
Obama started busting out the pants in 2014 – a promising sign of good things to come.
Obama’s style mojo started to pick up steam here. Pants fitting better, nice new shorts (Nike, by the looks of it), and less baggy shirts.
Uh oh, style juices flowing now. Under Armour shirt in this picture with some Nike shoes – he’s one good hat away from looking genuinely sharp.
Bam! Tighter fitting pants and shirts, cool shades – and finally a proper hat!Out of office and looking sharp. Long may it continue.
