While everyone will still have to breathlessly await what Michelle will wear for the inaugural, the President-elect's choice is already out. Along with word of a black Hart Schaffner Marx cashmere coat when he takes the oath of office, All the Rage reports "Obama would be changing into a custom-made Hart Schaffner Marx tuxedo for the inaugural festivities that follow...a black, 100% wool tuxedo with a one-button, satin notch lapel jacket and single-pleat trousers with a grosgrain accent." The off-the-rack version goes for $895. The blog also notes that on label's site, "in the lower right-hand a blue box and the words: 'Pick your power suit, President-elect Barack Obama found his at Hart Schaffner Marx.'" [All the Rage/LAT]
