Happy Presidents Day!

Dignified, tall, and handsome, with clean-shaven chin and side-whiskers, Chester A. Arthur "looked like a President."

Another hard to remember President is Rutherford Hayes. This President was not as fashionable as Chester and was subject to many cruel epigrams, including:

but your overcoat and hat look down right abominable
I know you're not a Whig, but I really must say
you dress as cheap
as a 5 cent toupee
