President Obama vs. President Kennedy: Who Has The Best Style? (PHOTOS)

When President Obama was elected in 2008, he was heralded as a "cool" president -- smooth, stylish, young, hip, etcetera. But it quickly became clear that Obama's fashion sense isn't without reproach (remember the dad jeans?).

POTUS can wear the hell out of a suit, and he knows a thing or two about good shoes. But we'd venture to say he doesn't hold a candle to the original stylish, young, hip president: John F. Kennedy.

So we decided to break it down: Out of these two "cool" presidents, who actually deserves fashion praise? Herewith, a fashion face-off between President Kennedy and President Obama.
