Brad Gerstman’s “Political” Best Dressed List 2013
Politics, unfortunately, is too often perceived by the average citizen as a dirty business. And the old saying that,
if you like the law or sausage you shouldn’t watch either of them being made highlights
the popular viewpoint. Those of us who get the chance to see elected officials up close and personal, however, understand just how much these popular views miss the mark-politicians on the whole are dedicated to the public good and, quite often, dress the part. When we began to conduct our fashion survey we found that there are quite a few of our Albany lawmakers, perhaps mindful of the prejudices of their constituents, who believe that dressing well is important. Since this is the award season, with the Golden Globes and the Oscars right around the corner, it is the right time to take a look at those elected officials who deserve recognition for their sartorial splendor.

Assemblyman Herman Ferrell Jr:
“Denny” as he
 is known to one and all is an old school throwback whose attire is reminiscent of the movie stars of yore. He mixes shirts of various stripes and colors. Denny sports colorful pocket squares and looks the part of debonair rake. Underneath the fashion, however, lurks a well-disguised clever mind and shrewd strategist. Denny epitomizes the true well-dressed gentleman. (3)
Former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:
 We had to throw in a ringer for our last nominee because Ray Kelly, awash in the muck and grime of policing the Big Apple, portrays a suave and debonair look that belies his 72 years. You may not agree with his policing style but you can't argue that he doesn't dress well. Meticulously put together with outstanding tailoring on his
