Obama Wears Indonesian Tunic In Bali, Looks Awesome (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Thank goodness!

After specifically skipping the chance to wear a Hawaiian shirt in Hawaii, President Obama has fulfilled our "silly presidential fashion" quota. Today he visited Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Bali, making a return to the country where he spent part of his childhood for the first time in 18 years.

He was clearly happy to be back, smiling gamely at a gala this evening as he donned a traditional Indonesian shirt.

And we have to say: the commander-in-chief looks good. A little goony, perhaps, given that we're not used to seeing him in jewel tones, not to mention busy prints (that's Michelle's department).

But with a big grin on his face and a matching buddy besides him, the president totally makes the green shirt work.

Flip through the photos below -- and, if you're feeling clever, come up with some good captions and leave them in the comments. These pics are just begging for a caption contest.
