Mr. Obama sometimes wears jeans, as he did for a rally on Oct. 28, but his jeans are the loose, jingle-the-change-in-your-pocket type. He belts them at the waist, and when he wears them with white sneakers and a windbreaker, one could almost say he had stolen the look from Jerry Seinfeld's character on the television series.
Mr. Seinfeld was unaware of the steal. "I don't know that I can make a proprietary claim to that look," Mr. Seinfeld said doubtfully. But if Mr. Obama favors it, he added, "I'm happy to have the association."
