President Barack Obama admits when it comes to denim, he's a disaster.

Appearing on Monday's Today show, he responded to good natured criticism he received for the bleached and baggy "dad jeans" he wore to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in St. Louis July 14.

"You are married to one of the most fashionable women in the world," Meredith Vieira noted. "Do you want to defend the pants?

Replied Obama, "Michelle, she looks fabulous. I am a little frumpy. Up until a few years ago, I only had four suits. She used to tease me because they would get really shiny."

"I hate to shop," he then added. "Those jeans are comfortable, and for those of you who want your president to look great in his tight jeans, I'm sorry I'm not the guy. It just doesn't fit me. I'm not 20."
