Everybody's talking about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie—about how he's going to run for president, about how he's not going to run for president (he's not, he confirmed), but most of all about whether a fat person could ever be President of the United States. Our friends at Esquire have dissected Christie's sartorial choices in a story called "How to Dress When Everyone Calls You Fat." It's worth a read, esp for guys who are faced with the same problems. We like this tip: "But, even if the ties can be a bit garish, he's smart to create a focal point that has nothing to do with his frame: Neckwear is, more or less, one-size-fits-all." [Esquire]
