Brainstorm: Ron Paul's SuitSubmitted by adam1mc on Fri, 11/11/2011 - 00:42
This suggestion has been brought up before and I posted a comment about it in another thread, but I decided to create a new post about it. Hopefully you guys will humor me with some lively debate regarding the topic.
Should we start a Chip-In and actually purchase Ron Paul a custom fitted suit that he can wear to the national debates?
For years, people have been talking about Ron Paul's ill-fitted suits. I personally don't think they are terrible, but I have no style. The wife has pointed out a few things about his suit that she says makes it look big on him, plus, if you search Google for ' "Ron Paul" suit fits ', you'll turn up countless sites where others have also referenced that the suit does not fit well.
Ron Paul’s suit jacket: The Fix is, admittedly, a bit of a clotheshorse. But, anyone who has ever worn a suit could see that the Texas Congressman’s coat was at least two sizes to big. The ill-fitting coat made Paul look tiny, never a good image to project when you are running for president.
Whenever Ron Paul appears at the Republican debate, all I can think about his how bad his suit fits him. The leader of the free world should have a suit that doesn't look like it was bought off-the-rack at Walmart.
And there are countless others if you take the time to look.
Money could be collected, a custom suit could be ordered and in theory all that Dr. Paul would need to do is run down to get sized and then have an associate come back to pick the suit up when complete.
There are primary debates scheduled for December 12th and December 15th and it may be possible to have this to him by then.
Humor me a bit. Worthy idea? Crap idea? Are the FEC restrictions that would prohibit this sort of donation?
I could probably set this up in just a short amount of time (of course I wouldn't do anything to spoil tomorrow's moneybomb) and get the ball rolling pretty easy. I've already been looking and Tom James sells custom suits and they are located in the D.C. area.
What do you guys think?
