“I was told that it was going to be an informal event — that it was going to be business casual,” 26-year-old Lance Futch told the New York Post. “So when President Obama walked in the room, I’m looking down at my white polo going, ‘Well, if I would have known this, I would have worn my military blues or at least a suit and tie.’ I admit I was feeling a little underdressed at the moment."
