Obama throws out the first pitch -- and the dad jeans
President Obama threw out the first pitch at Nationals Park Monday -- and he's apparently thrown out the much-derided "dad jeans" (a pair of hiked-up Levi's 501s) that earned him style demerits from armchair fashion critics.
The day's half over and we're still trying to get the provenance of said tan trousers -- to us it looks like there's a square logo label over the right rear pocket, which might make them Dickies. We'll update when we know more.
