Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) Accepts Offer of GQ Makeover After Wearing Purple Polo with Clip-On Bow Tie


Yesterday, Chris Armstrong tweeted this screencap of Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), writing: “Bow ties with polo shirts on the House floor. God help us.”

Dennis Tang at GQ’s column ‘The GQ Eye’ seized on the post:

“Worst ever? Yeah, right, how bad could it possiblyyyyyeeesh, okay, yeah, now that I look at it. Definitely. Is that a purple golf polo? With a bow tie? Is that a clip-on?…Wow, a Democrat? Thanks, Obama. But anyway, Jared. It’s fine. We can help. You should let us help you. Because seriously, forget immigration reform. Keep this up, and I’m going Ted Cruz 2016, straight up.”

And Polis took him up on the offer, tweeting:

“Thank you @GQMagazine @GQFashion for the offer to help… I accept and am looking forward to the consultation!!”
