JB’s a new kind of Democrat. He’s building a cooler, more approachable identity for the Democratic Party.
And he’s doing it from the bottom up.

Think it is a darn good look. Hard to critique the outfit as I often dress like that.
Jacket could use a few more wrinkles, but all things considered Governor is looking sharply dressed for the Fair. My only suggestion would be adding a Sox hat.

“Companies see all the good things happening here in Illinois, that’s why they want to move here, and that’s even more good news for the state and its people. And so I am thrilled to stand before you today and announce the creation of 250 new jobs at a new JNCO factory in Rochelle, which we will be breaking ground for next week.”

They told me I could drive the big truck, if I wore jeans.
I was going to wear my Canadian Tuxedo, but the denim jacket is in the wash.

Agree that he is wearing a suit coat which only adds to the overall very cool look.
Thinking this is the guy I knew who I voted for who is comfortable in his own skin and knows how to get out and enjoy the fair.
Thinking perhaps an Illinois based green John Deere hat would go great with the brown shoes, comfortable pair of jeans, suit coat and checkered suit.

The jacket was suggested by someone else because they always put him behind a lectern for these speeches so the pants are cropped out in camera shots. Makes him slightly more formal for that idot presser or whatever, then he can drop the cost and walk the fairgrounds.
“What the well-dressed man ISN’T wearing this season–full photo shoot inside.”
Seriously, I have limited fashion sense, and this just is so wrong on so many levels. JB looks like a used-car salesman/cowboy or something with this “I dressed myself, Mommy” look. He could have gone with some dark jeans and the dark sportcoat (both with better tailoring for his size; he can afford it), and dark shoes/boots.
