Not well-suited

When Mitt Romney formally introduced Paul Ryan as his running mate, many fashion pundits were distracted by Ryan's wardrobe for the occasion: an ill-fitting coat, pants that hung baggy at the ankles and no tie. We compared the ensemble to David Byrne's absurdly oversized suit from "Stop Making Sense." The RNC must have hired Ryan a stylist after the event, because later in the campaign Ryan began to look more like a potential candidate for the second- highest office in the land and less like a 14-year-old wearing his dad's clothes.
