Steve Bannon has been compared to a lot of things: an alcoholic sweaty gym sock, an overripe banana left in the fridge for too long, and a ziploc bag filled with liposuction fat that's been given sentience. He's also been criticized for his ties with Russia and his horrible hip-hop musical screenplay.
The way Steve Bannon wears a shirt, or shirts, for public appearances is raising eyebrows. I mean who in the world wears a button-down shirt beneath a button down shirt. You're supposed to just wear one button down and put a t-shirt underneath it. Most likely a deep v-neck or even a tank top, but another button down? And then to wear two button downs and a blazer over it? What's the deal? Who does that?
Is the former White House chief strategist trying to start a fashion trend? Or does he need comfort from a particularly chilly reception?
It's evident that Bannon likes to unconventionally layer up. His zany sartorial choice is a frequent occurrence.
Here he is during an election night event back in November 2016, donned in his finest T-shirt under polo shirt, under a button-down oxford, under a sports coat look.
You know, like you do.
Twitter can't figure him out. But they gave it a shot anyway.

It was to hold his liver in.— Gary Hall (@southerntails1) August 16, 2017
Why? Is this so he can shed layers as his dandruff progresses throughout the day?— First, Kill Your TV (@1stKillUrTV) September 7, 2017
I suspect he's just too lazy to take dirty clothes off each day and just keeps layering clean ones over top. There is no better explanation.— Mr. Spleeter (@mrspleeter) September 7, 2017
Oh god. What's strong enough to penetrate one but weak enough to be staved by the other?— Grudge (@grudging1) August 16, 2017
And yet, popped neither collar. I am le confused.— Leila (@imsosorryrumham) August 16, 2017
the color is all wrong tho. Should be more 💩ish— Edgeoforever🖖 (@edgeoforever) August 16, 2017
Turns out, this is an actual look! He's aspiring to emulate this fashion forward trend, one collar at a time.
But even though we question Bannon's fashion choice, here's hoping he doesn't go to the other extreme...
I still can't wrap my head around the multiple collars, who layers collars on top of collars on top of collars. There has to be a psychological profile for something like that. I'm no fashionista, but still!
