Jack Abramoff’s fashion faux pas

in Peter by

Just after I had remarked how smartly dressed Jack Abramoff was at his court hearing in Washington, D.C., with his stark, but exsquisite overcoat and fedora, he goes and wears a baseball cap with a suit at his arraignment in Miami. Who the hell wears a baseball cap with a suit? Is this guy David Letterman? And it’s not like he’s trying to cover up a bald spot, which would still make it ridiculous, but understandable.

In addition to the sentence he faces for bribing Congress, Jack Abramoff should have been arrested the moment he stepped out of the car and hauled off to jail for contempt of fashion.
