Donald Trump meets with U.S. Senator Tim Scott in the Oval Office, Sept. 13, 2017.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a suit as “an ensemble of two or more usually matching outer garments.” While at the White House on Wednesday to meet with Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, Donald Trump appeared to have forgotten this simple definition. After the White House released a photo of the meeting, it didn’t take long for the fashion critics—or, really, anyone with eyes—to point out that Trump was wearing black pants with a navy blue jacket (and a bright blue tie).
Black and navy as a color combination isn’t always a bad thing; in fact, it’s everywhere this fall. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s second collection for Dior, which she presented in March, went heavy on mixing the two hues. There was even a quote from Christian Dior in the collection’s notes: “Among all colors, navy blue is the only one which can ever compete with black, it has all the same qualities.”
Was Donald Trump inspired by Dior’s fall collection when he got dressed on Wednesday morning? Probably not, but who’s to say? The purpose of a suit is to wear a matching set, and Trump being photographed wearing a navy jacket and black pants not only looks off, but makes one wonder about the company he keeps. Where was a stylist, a staffer, or his former model wife to step in before he left for the Oval Office and, at the very least, order a change in tie?
Barack Obama was also mocked occasionally for his choice in formalwear. Specifically for his decision to wear a now-infamous tan suit. Say what you will now about the tan suit, but it did have one thing going for it: it matched.
