    Everyone Is Obsessed With Bernie Sanders' Mittens At The Inauguration

    They are perfect.

    While most attendees of today's inauguration dressed in their fanciest and thinnest coats.

    There was one man who did not. And that was Bernie Sanders.

    He said nah!

    Shout out to Bernie Sanders showing up to the inauguration as if he’s headed to the UPS store and picking up some coffee in Burlington.

    Like, cutest mittens any person in politics has ever worn.

    He looked comfy, cozy, warm, and like maybe you just ran into him buying Mallomars at the grocery store.

    Bernie with zero sartorial consideration. Just full Vermont grandfather

    Best part is, Bernie's mittens were made by a teacher from Vermont and they are SUSTAINABLE!!!!

    Bernie’s mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles.

    Not only did he rock a very normcore lewk, but he also practiced social distancing.

    So yeah, Michelle Obama looked stunning. Dr. Jill Biden looked flawless. But Bernie? Well, Bernie looked like he was gonna sneak me $5 and say, "don't spend it all on one thing." And that, is TRUE FASHION.

    This proves it — mittens are better than gloves!
