And I don't even care if Bush did it too  
President Obama shocked the conscience of the nation by wearing a light-colored suit.

Ever since Ron Reagan wore a windowpane check suit, I doubt any subsequent president has committed a comparable breach of sartorial taste. But what the heck, Nancy liked it, and he dressed for her.

As for the commentariat, they need to get real. It's August, in Washington DC. The traditional suit is seersucker, with a bow tie. Not that any president has actually worn that since Harry Truman... There's nothing wrong with a light colored suit in summer. If someone wants to complain about it being a shade of brown, the old dictate that "gentlemen don't wear brown in town," never gained acceptance on this side of the Atlantic.
