Roger Stone is making the most of his day in court. The Trump confidante/political trickster appeared for his arraignment on Tuesday (Jan. 29), where he pleaded not guilty to charges of false statements, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

But what did he wear, you ask? Let him explain.

Not one to waste the spotlight, the former Daily Caller fashion columnist starred in a video for the site, detailing his outfit for the occasion, right down to his Charvet boxers. Stone specified that a single-breasted suit is superior to double-breasted for making the Richard Nixon-style “victory” gesture, of which he is so fond. (Double-breasted “just doesn’t ride up properly.”)

Stone also noted that his custom-made Richard James three-button suit was chosen for its relative modesty. “Never button the top button unless you’re 100% Italian. I’m only half-Italian. I’m Italian from the waist down,” he said.

“I did not want to dress today in one of my double-breasted Savile Row English suits because it would be a little too wealthy-looking.” Stone noted. “I’m dirt-poor at this point, having been destroyed financially by a two-year inquisition by Robert Mueller and his partisan hit squad.”

Perhaps an auction of Stone’s natty suits is coming soon, and this will serve as the infomercial.
