And yes, of course Michelle Obama always looks great too, but we're here to discuss Mr. Obama today.

During his downtime, the former commander-in-chief frequently rocked dad jeans. In fact, his proclivity for that particular jean is well-documented.

No more "dad jeans" for President Obama. He looks so stylish!

The dad jeans are no more, at least for now.

Dude finally lost the dad jeans. #obama
