William Howard Taft: Hero of the Fats

William Howard Taft was our nation’s fattest leader.  He typically weighed more than 300 pounds, and according to legend once got stuck in a White House bathtub, but he was also PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

He was also quite sharp.  Notice that his style is neat: important for a heavy guy who will naturally look a bit unkempt.  His three-piece suit minimizes contrast between his top and bottom half, which allows attention to head naturally towards his face.  The dark, solid color is as flattering as is reasonably possible, given his girth.  He’s also got a sharp haircut and some great facial hair – neat but also distinctive.
