Obama's 'Dorky Dad' Look: A Fashion Don't? (SLIDESHOW, POLL)

As Barack Obama gets more comfortable with his new gig, so do his clothes. Every so often the president departs from his standard suit-and-tie look, and dons faded jeans, white sneakers, an athletic jacket, and maybe a backwards hat or bicycle helmet.

As Michelle Obama told "Access Hollywood" last July: "I think it's funny that he's involved in this fashion icon stuff because these pants," she says, "he's had for probably ten years... and don't pan down to the shoes because we talked about getting new shoes." (Check out the holey shoes Obama wears.)

And the president-elect concurs: "I'm baffled by this whole thing myself because I hate to shop."

So it's no surprise that his casual clothes resemble those of a somewhat dorky, but entirely endearing dad. Do you think they could use some improvement? Chime in below.
