Mahmood Ahmadinejad

+ No comment yet
Mahmood Ahmadinejad is a polarizing figure. However, the truth of the matter is that, love him or hate him, we all must acknowledge one undeniable fact -- the man has style.

This isn't even the full arsenal and it's already more than most world leaders.
Think about this for a second, why do we wear ties? It's all because society, man. It takes some major cajones to go against that. (Okay, so maybe it's much easier if the society readily accepts the no-tie.)
Still, beyond the tie there's an entire armament of fashion suave accessories. Take for example, the shades. First, we have the scholarly look:
"I do have a Ph.D"
 This look isn't exclusive to Ahmadinejad; however, he does really carry it well. The suit, the shirt, the lack of a tie combined with the glasses really sets up a PhD image. Add to that a little salt and pepper and we've got some serious styling.

But what really sets Ahmadinejad apart from his world leader fellows is his variety and the his ability to carry it off so well. Furthermore, nothing is ever a blitzkrieg on the eyes, but rather is more like a sniper's bullet (piercing your mind's realm of cool, obviously).

Kanye who?

Take a look at the picture on the left. Compare that to the picture above. There worlds apart. If that doesn't speak about the extent of the Ahmedinejad arsenal, I don't know what will. Well, maybe those UN inspectors could help us here. Regardless though, the shift not only in fashion, but also overall image, is a tool not enough world leaders, or politicians exploit. That's not to say, they don't try (and pay a lot to do). I guess the truth is that they just aren't as big of fashion bosses as this man.

The Atomic Look

The 3-D
More shades. Despite everyone dressing the same, one man sticks out. That my friends is the sign of a true (fashion) revolutionary.

As for the 3-d glasses, just wait a couple of years for that one. It's a style waiting to explode, and when it does we'll all turn back to this picture and view it as the as the powder-keg that destroyed all our former glasses paradigms. And while we're talking about the glasses, take a look at the scarf too. Pure style. Pure swag. Or as they would stay in Farsi, Pur Asvaag.
