Barack Obama was never a fashionista. His oft-teased tan suit controversy while he resided in the Oval Office confirms this. But nowadays, mired in the kinds of scandals our current administration likes to plunge us into, we look back on that kind of that non-scandal with fondness and nostalgia.

Recently, however, our former POTUS sported a different look, and it's a sartorial win that the media can't stop obsessing over.

On February 20th, Obama showed up for a hyped college basketball game at the Cameron Indoor Stadium in North Carolina to watch the North Carolina Tar Heels play the Duke Blue Devils. But people were commenting on more than his presence.

He was rocking a custom-made Rag & Bone black bomber jacket, and the embroidery on his sleeve in particular tied his look together perfectly, like a boss.


The white stitching on his new swag was the number "44," which refers to his standing as our 44th president. Sigh.




It's safe to say we've moved well past the tan-suit incident.






Yes, his sleek outerwear exuding the coolness of the man himself not only impressed Twitter, but made everyone nostalgic for a different era.








A new nickname was born.


He is sorely missed.




This user suggested a similar wardrobe upgrade for the sitting president, albeit with a different color.



If you've got $595 burning a hole in your wallet, you too could be the proud owner of this Manston Jacket and you can add your own defining digits embroidered on your sleeve.

Rag & Bone founder Marcus Wainwright woke up to a slew of texts, including one from head of marketing, after the internet's explosive glee over the bomber.

"Fun to wake up to that. He looked pretty f****** cool."

The brand customized the jacket for the former president towards the end of his second term, but the fashion CEO didn't expect Obama to be seen in public wearing it.

"I hadn't forgotten about it, but I wasn't necessarily waiting [for it to appear]," Wainwright told GQ.

"I wasn't expecting him to wear it in public. I thought maybe he's wearing it on the weekends or at home. I was hoping that he was wearing it."

He also commented on the personalized embroidery.

"The '44' on the sleeve just felt like a subtle touch. Not many people could have pulled it off that way. He's got style."

We concur and can say with absolute certainty that our former POTUS looked haute.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
