Inauguration Holleration

In spite of the fact we already know Barack Obama plans to wear a tux from his trusted Hart Schaffner Marx, WWD.com asked some of the leading menswear designers to weigh in, and weigh in they did. With looks ranging from a tux with tails and a chain wallet c/o D Squared to a straight up blingin’ glittered tux jacket c/o Richard James, their sketches are so beautiful, done so artfully they could easily pass as additions to the overwhelming outpouring of artwork created during the elections supporting the president-elect a la Shepard Fairey.

A selection of favorites from the portfolio:
