Its commercials claim, “You’re going to like the way you look; I guarantee it,” and Rep. David Dreier seems to be a believer in Men’s Wearhouse.
According to financial disclosure forms, the California Republican has invested at least $1,000 in stock in the Houston-based retailer.
Dreier has gained an online following for his taste in menswear. When he announced earlier this year that he wouldn’t seek a 17th term, the website GetKempt.com called the news “a dark day for congressional style.”
The fashion site added the “dandy congressman” is “widely considered the best-dressed congressman in the House of Representatives.”
In a Yahoo forum in 2008, another Dreier fan noted his “dapper suites [sic] with ties matching his neatly folded pocket squares.”
A separate poster agreed, writing, “Yes, he is very well-dressed — great suits, indeed.”
Dreier’s office didn’t get back to us on whether the lawmaker stocks his closets with suits from Men’s Wearhouse.
