William J. Clinton is regal in a blue suit- two-button, herringbone-stripe – white shirt and power-red tie with a matching red H (for Hillary) lapel pen. Both suits buttons are fastened, perhaps signifying the formality of the evening. (Twelve days later, when he wears much the same outfit to the Democratic National Convention, he will button only one, perhaps signifying the more intimate nature of that speech.)”
