Obama's Mom Jeans...Or Dad Jeans?

President Obama is probably used to critics attacking his policies. But his fashion sense? That's a new one.

The President has been endlessly mocked all over the Internet for wearing baggy jeans when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star Game in St. Louis. Some fashionistas are calling his outfit...wait for it..."Mom jeans."

Frankly, I think that term is ridiculous. My dad wears much worse jeans than my mom ever did—the wash was always uncool, the legs were always a little too short. (Sorry, Dad, it's true.) Don't get me started about the cutoffs...

So it seems to me that President Obama was just being a typical dad wearing his typical dad jeans. Why do we have to bring moms into it?


Why does no one ever make fun of "Dad jeans?"



Do you think President Obama's jeans are too baggy?
