Presidents Day Fashion Face-Off: Lincoln v. Washington!

by at .

Happy Presidents Day 2018 from all of us at The Hollywood Gossip, as we come together to honor a couple of true American heroes.

The truest of heroes, really. The truest of the true.

And the Winner is?

They were both A-plus chief executives, but which U.S. President do you love more, Abraham Lincoln or George Washington? That's what we wanna know! View Poll »

It's time we determined who among these United States legends is worthy of being called the greatest of all time. OF ALL TIME!

In a Fashion Face-Off for the ages, that is!

Yes, we realize that styles popularized by Abraham Lincoln and George Washington haven't been popular with the mainstream in ages.

Like, ages. Industrial Revolution style.

By the same token, when you're a titan of history, you never go out of style, are we right?! If you got you a national monument, 'nuff said.

Pres Day 17

Take the first President of the U.S., George Washington. He led a rebellion over Great Britain, then oversaw the birth of a new nation.

Four score and seven years later, Abraham Lincoln valiantly preserved and paved the way for a more perfect union against long odds.

Overcoming similarly huge obstacles, redefining what was possible and then fighting to preserve it, both patriots delivered for America.

In their respective eras and now, giants among men.

Ones who make all of our lives seem more than a tad mundane and pointless all of a sudden. Kind of sad if you stop and think about it.

Pres Day

Anyway, comparing achievements and legacies by people in such rarefied air is impossible ... but we can at least pick a fashion winner.

Would you rather rock George's 18th Century Colonial garb or Abe's 19th Century Civil War-era attire? Talk about the toughest of calls.

Make it. It's your duty as an American.
