You can say a lot of things about how Yanis Varoufakis dresses and god knows Alexis Tsipras has, but people please: Yans had Greece's best interests at heart even while wearing the most hideous of outfits. When it becomes a criminal act to wear shirts that physically pain anyone with taste then yes, Tsipras will be the first to indict the guy on crimes against fashion.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras defended his former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, saying he may have strange dress sense but acted in the interests of his country. “You can blame him all you want for his comments, for his political plans, for his bad taste in shirts, for his holidays on the island of Aegina,” Tsipras told lawmakers in Athens Friday. “But you can’t say that he is a crook, you can’t say that he stole the money of the Greek people, you can’t say that he had a secret plan to lead the country onto the rocks.”
