A company in Bosnia launched its Obama clothing line before the U.S. presidential election was decided. Designers chose the name Obama Suits because they thought it had a certain ring. Apparently the line is selling well in Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia. No word on whether the company plans to sell its Obama Suit in the U.S.

ARI SHAPIRO, host:

And our last word in business today comes from clothing company in Bosnia. The word is Obama Suits. A central Bosnian company launched its Obama clothing line before the election. Designers said they chose the name because they thought it had a certain ring to it. One company manager told the French reporter the name was an obvious choice because the president-elect is clearly a very elegant man and one of the few who knows how to wear a suit. Apparently, the line is selling well in Bosnia, Croatia, and Slovenia. No word on whether the company plans to sell its presidential fashions in the U.S. And that's the Business News on Morning Edition from NPR News.
