Patriot Games
Dressing for America on Election Day

UD - The Red-Striped, Navy-Blue Jacket

KEEPING ABREAST

The Red-Striped, Navy-Blue Jacket

Patriotic bona fides: A ribbon-striped, red, gold and blue sartorial nod to the East Coast prep so many commanders-in-chief have favored.
Perfect for: Probably more of a pro-Romney crowd. Somewhere with scotch lockers.
411:
Stripe Patch Pocket Jacket, $575, Black Fleece, 351 Bleecker St (at W 10th), 212-929-2763
UD - The Old Glory Scarf

SCARVES AND STRIPES

The Old Glory Scarf

Patriotic bona fides: It’s the flag of the United States of America, in scarf form.
Perfect for: Anywhere giving off the distinct impression of a place that’s only using the election as an excuse for a party. Also: blocking the crisp winds of an American November morn.
411:
The Votary Scarf, $75, Teich, 22 8th Ave (at W 12th), 212-537-6630
UD - A Flag from the Cleveland Administration

WRAPPED IN THE FLAG

A Flag from the Cleveland Administration

Patriotic bona fides: A late-19th-century wool American flag with just 45 stars.
Perfect for: Maybe using it as a cape or draping it over you, Bill the Butcher–style, would be a little too dramatic. Nah, you’re right, that sounds like the move.
411:
1896 American Flag, $750, The Hunt, 72 Orchard St (between Broome and Grand), 646-861-2983
UD - The Campaign Boater

THAT’S THE TICKET

The Campaign Boater

Patriotic bona fides: This is the official hat of political events. Something Woodrow Wilson’s staff would have worn back at headquarters.
Perfect for: Anywhere with a multiscreen electoral college map breakdown over the bar.
411:
Panama Boater, $110, J.J. Hat Center, 310 5th Ave (between 31st and 32nd), 212-239-4368
UD - The New York State Cufflinks

AWRISTACRATS

The New York State Cufflinks

Patriotic bona fides: None. This is about New York State pride and showing a little support for the down-ticket races.
Perfect for: When you’ve got a lot riding on the outcome of the race for state legislature.
411:
New York Cufflinks, $50, Jack Spade, 56 Greene St (near Broome), 212-625-1820, and 400 Bleecker St (near W 11th), 212-675-4085
UD - The Old Bully Pulpit

PARTING WORDS

The Old Bully Pulpit

Patriotic bona fides: A speech-giving apparatus that’s a fake presidential seal away from you being contacted by the Secret Service. And about that speech: here.
Perfect for: The gracious and touching concession speech you’ve prepared to end your valiant write-in effort.
