Barack Obama Wears J.Crew to Inaugural Ball
OBAMA FURNISHES HIS TUXEDO WITH A J.CREW WHITE SATIN BOW TIE
"We are thrilled to be a part of this historic event," says Frank Muytjens, V.P. of Men's Design. "The President's decision to wear a J.Crew bow tie is an honor for everyone at J.Crew. He is such an icon."
The bow tie was created specifically for Barack and was made from 100% Italian silk satin. The luxury of the silk gave it a fuller body and a sophisticated sheen. To ensure easy adjustments and to give the bow tie a streamlined look, a hook and bar system was added instead of a buttons. A J.Crew "COLLECTION" tag was also added for an extra custom touch. The exact bow tie Barack wore is not available for sale, but a similar style will be available for Fall 2009. Currently, J.Crew offers a black satin version online.
