Ben Bernanke, Trendsetter?

Ben Bernanke, December 16, 2009: “I’ve got a driver’s license, my American Express card, a debit card, a Jos. [A.] Bank card where I get my suits, I have a health insurance card. And then I have a variety of other cards, phone numbers, United Airlines, frequent flyer. And I have $45…$75…$85. I’m all set.”

NYP, on Georgio Gucci, September 24, 2010: “The fashion heir was forced to buy a $450 suit from menswear retailer JoS. A. Bank for his appearance before Congress yesterday. The impeccably dressed Italian’s luggage was lost by US Airways on a flight from Madrid to Philadelphia on Monday. Giorgio — whose grandfather Guccio founded the House of Gucci in 1905 — had to scramble to find something to wear before his speech on Capitol Hill.”

    Is this supposed to be a subliminal ad for Jos. A. Bank? Or do you really make fun of them?
