Haley attacked by stripes

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley visited a Bosch facility in her state last week. She wore a striped blazer (sorry, the sound on this isn't great):

Oh my there is a lot going on with this jacket. We're not having our usual "patterns on television" problem, but it's making me dizzy just the same.
  • The stripes are variable widths and have serrated edges, which makes the pattern much busier than a smooth edged, even width stripe would be.  The stripes on the sleeves are also not matched up with the stripes where it joins to the body, which is additionally jarring.
  • The lapel features silver studs about the size of a nickel, adding an additional set of focal points.
  • To this she further adds her usual jewelry: a cross and a US/SC flag pin.
All these details just completely take over. It's really hard to look at anything else.
