The Sochi Olympics are the pinnacle of winter sporting achievement. Here at Mullen & Mullen, we've all been hooked in the incredible athlete's achievements so far - of course, in sports, you get out what you Putin (I'm snow board of Olympics puns). However, sometimes the athletes fashion choices dazzle more than the gold medals.

Sochi Outfits

Finally, Putin, who is seems only has 1 suit. Why not take inspiration from Obama? His distinguished blue suit, custom tailored by Hartmarx (the largest suit maker in the United States) is so popular that Hartmarx has named them the 'Obama Suit' - a two-button, single-breasted suit jacket and single pleated pant with inch-and-a-quarter cuffs, made of a 97% worsted wool and 3% cashmere blend.

Thinking about a Obama suit, or a dazzling lining?
