President Obama acknowledges that he is “a little frumpy” and says he’s not worried about it.

Asked in an NBC “Today” show interview about the well-worn bluejeans he wore to the pitcher’s mound to throw out the first pitch at last week’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game, Mr. Obama said, “I hate to shop.”

He said that up until two years ago, he had only four suits and said, “Those jeans are comfortable.”

Mr. Obama said he would leave it up to first lady Michelle Obama to set the fashion pace at the White House. “Here’s my attitude: Michelle, she looks fabulous… . For people who want a president to look great in tight jeans, I’m sorry,” he said.

The interview was broadcast Tuesday.
