US President Barack Obama held a press conference today (28 August) to discuss current crisis situations in Ukraine, Iraq and Syria, amongst other issues. However, the serious matter of the Middle East crisis took second place to questions of sartorial style, with all eyes on the President's suit.

Soon after President Obama began the press conference, Twitterers played fashion police and his tan suit was soon doing the rounds on social media.

Let's get a sense of the US President's choice of fashion over the years:
