President Barack Obama held a news conference Thursday on the threat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria -- but all eyes were on the crisp tan suit he was sporting just days before Labor Day, which fashionistas deem to be the cut-off point for wearing white and other light colors.
Social media has since lit up with viewers' comments about the commander-in-chief's summer fashion choice. Some loved it, some hated it. If anything, at least Obama knows how Hillary feels.
Here's a look at what some people are saying on Twitter:
POTUS is speaking now. Wearing a tan suit...this breaks from the standard navy or gray suits we've seen for years.— Kris Van Cleave (@ABC7Kris) August 28, 2014

*20 minutes earlier* OBAMA: I'm not wearing this suit, Joe BIDEN: No, no you look great OBAMA: Fine. But I'm not wearing the Sea World hat— Eric Schroeck (@ericschroeck) August 28, 2014
People, it's two days before labor day weekend. Let Obama wear a khaki suit. Personally I'd prefer linen but who really cares.— Paul Dana (@paulinias) August 28, 2014

This is what happens when Obama bypasses Congress to purchase a suit.— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) August 28, 2014
Imagine if Obama wore a tan suit after Labor Day. That would be grounds for impeachment.— Garrett Quinn (@GarrettQuinn) August 28, 2014
