John Tyler's Wardrobe

Would John Tyler wear jeans, on the weekends? What do you think?

(Low-slung jeans, resting at his hips -- they'd have to be, with that body type.)

I wasn't sure, because he seems so rarely to be at ease. But in the privacy of his home and the anonymity of his weekend activities, he would dress the way he felt most comfortable, most true to himself. I think that would be exercise gear (probably mismatched, and not new) when he goes running, and jeans (whatever brand fit best) at other times.

At first I couldn't picture him in jeans. But then I thought about Jackie and her dislike of "airs and graces." Since she had quite a hand in his upbringing of course he would be down to Earth and dress very much like young Rose did.

I couldn't, either, because he seems so rarely to be at ease. But he doesn't want to look stiff. He doesn't want to look like mutton-dressed-as-lamb (he's 38, and conscious of it) so he wouldn't dress as he did at 18, but in the privacy of his home and the relative anonymity of his weekend activities, he would dress for comfort.

Also, although he doesn't usually seek out attention from the public, he's not immune to female admiration. I imagine at some point he was told how good he looks in jeans. :)

Oh absolutely.

Also, I just came across this pic and I immediately thought about John Tyler on a casual day.

Mm ... that's a nice picture!

John would probably wear a plain tee shirt in preference to one with an image. An image is a little too attention-getting. And as the heir to one large organization and the figurehead of another he can't go about declaring a supposed affinity with society's rebels without feeling he looks ridiculous. But he does have those framed posters in his bedroom, and I imagine he has some very old concert tees in the back of his wardrobe. (I think his student days were probably some of the happiest of his life.)

I agree with everyone else... he might wear low-slung jeans and a nice tee shirt.

Yes, he'd wear jeans, but they'd probably be an old pair, like 5 or so years old. He'd find the pair that he liked, and that would be all he'd need until the wore out.

And that pic? YUM!
